THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY ACROSS CENTRAL FLORIDA ALONG WITH THE
EAST COAST SEA BREEZE AND AMPLE MOISTURE WILL PRODUCE SCATTERED
TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND LIGHTNING STORMS BY LATE AFTERNOON. A FEW
STORMS MAY BECOME STRONG LATE IN THE DAY MAINLY FROM THE ORLANDO
AREA SOUTHWARD WHERE GREATER DAYTIME HEATING IS EXPECTED. MAIN
THREATS FROM THIS ACTIVITY INCLUDE LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN...GUSTY
WINDS TO 40 TO 50 MPH AND FREQUENT CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING
STRIKES. IF STORMS DEVELOP IN YOUR AREA MOVE INDOORS INTO A STURDY
STRUCTURE. STORM MOTION WILL BE TOWARD THE EAST AROUND 15 TO 20
MPH.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
LOCALIZED HEAVY RAINFALL AMOUNTS TO TWO TO THREE INCHES WITH THE
STRONGEST STORMS LATER TODAY MAY CAUSE MINOR FLOODING OF LOW-LYING
AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A NORTHEAST SWELL WILL PRODUCE A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS AT
EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA BEACHES. THE THREAT FOR STRONG RIP CURRENTS
WILL INCREASE AROUND THE TIME OF LOW TIDE IN THE EARLY EARLY
AFTERNOON. ALWAYS SWIM NEAR A LIFE GUARD AND DO NOT SWIM ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
THUNDERSTORMS THAT DEVELOP OVER THE MAINLAND THIS AFTERNOON WILL
MOVE EASTWARD UP TO 15 TO 20 MPH TOWARD THE INTRACOASTAL AND NEAR
SHORE WATERS MAINLY FROM PONCE INLET SOUTHWARD IN THE LATE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS. WIND GUSTS OVER 34 KNOTS MAY
ACCOMPANY STRONGER STORMS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
THE CHANCE FOR AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS WILL REMAIN WELL ABOVE
AVERAGE THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK AS UNUSUALLY DEEP MOISTURE
REMAINS IN PLACE OVER EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. A FEW STRONG STORMS
WILL BE POSSIBLE EACH DAY. A NORTHEAST SWELL WILL KEEP AN
ELEVATED RISK OF RIP CURRENTS AT EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA BEACHES
THROUGH THIS WEEKEND.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
