THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A MODERATE SOUTHWEST WIND WILL DELAY THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE
FORMATION UNTIL MID AFTERNOON...POSSIBLY EVEN PREVENTING IT FROM
DEVELOPING NORTH OF THE CAPE. WHERE THE SEA BREEZE FORMS IT WILL
ONLY MOVE SLIGHTLY INLAND AND STALL NEAR THE COAST. SCATTERED
SHOWERS AND STORMS OVER WEST CENTRAL FLORIDA WILL PUSH EAST TO
NORTHEAST AT 10 TO 15 MPH AND INTO THE REGION THROUGH THE
AFTERNOON. COVERAGE AND INTENSITY OF THE STORMS IS EXPECTED TO
INCREASE AS THE STORMS NEAR THE EAST COAST AND INTERACT WITH THE
STALLED SEA BREEZE BOUNDARY LATE IN THE DAY. THE PRIMARY HAZARDS
FROM STORMS WILL BE FREQUENT CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES AND
WIND GUSTS TO 40 TO 50 MPH. SMALL HAIL WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE FROM
THE STRONGER STORMS THAT DEVELOP DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON AND
EARLY EVENING.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL UP TO AROUND 2 INCHES MAY RESULT IN
TEMPORARY NUISANCE FLOODING OF LOW SPOTS ON ROADS...ESPECIALLY
OVER LOCATIONS THAT HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED HEAVIER RAINFALL THESE
PAST COUPLE OF DAYS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A SMALL BACKGROUND SWELL WILL COMBINE WITH A HIGH ASTRONOMICAL
TIDE TO PRODUCE A LOW TO MODERATE THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS ALONG
THE EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA COAST. THE THREAT WILL BE HIGHEST DURING
THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING DUE TO TIDAL CONDITIONS. CHECK
WITH OCEAN RESCUE AND BEACH PATROL FOR LATEST SURF CONDITIONS AND
ALWAYS SWIM NEAR A LIFEGUARD.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
BOATERS ON INLAND LAKES...THE INTRACOASTAL WATERS AND THE NEARSHORE
WATERS SHOULD KEEP A WEATHER EYE TO THE WESTERN SKIES FOR
APPROACHING LIGHTNING STORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. SCATTERED
STORMS WILL MOVE FROM WEST TO EAST UP TO 10 TO 15 MPH ACROSS THE
REGION THIS AFTERNOON WITH A FEW STRONGER STORMS MOVING OFFSHORE
AND PRODUCING GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 35 KNOTS LATER IN THE DAY. THIS
WILL BE ESPECIALLY TRUE FOR CONVECTION THAT INTERACTS WITH THE
EAST COAST SEA BREEZE THAT WILL LIKELY DEVELOP FROM THE CAPE
SOUTHWARD THIS AFTERNOON.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
SOUTHWEST WINDS THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK AS A HIGH PRESSURE
RIDGE REMAINS OVER THE FLORIDA STRAITS. THIS WILL LEAD TO AN
INCREASE IN AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY...ESPECIALLY OVER THE
COASTAL COUNTIES. FREQUENT LIGHTNING...STRONG WIND GUSTS...AND
VERY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE THE PRIMARY CONCERNS. HIGH PRESSURE
MIGRATING BACK NORTH WILL RESULT IN WINDS SHIFTING TO THE
SOUTHEAST THEN EAST NEXT WEEKEND.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE
IF NEEDED.
