THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A BAND OF SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL MOVE INTO EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA
EARLY THIS AFTERNOON AHEAD OF A SLOWING FRONTAL BOUNDARY. HIGH
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO REACH INTO THE UPPER 80S AND LOW 90S
IN MANY LOCATIONS BY THIS AFTERNOON...WITH SUFFICIENT DAYTIME
HEATING BEFORE CLOUDS ARRIVE TO HELP INSTABILITY. LOW LEVEL WINDS
WILL INCREASE THROUGH THE DAY...LEADING TO VERY QUICK MOVING
STORMS THAT WILL PUSH OFF TO THE NORTHEAST AT 35 TO 40 MPH WHILE
THE ENTIRE BAND MOVES THROUGH THE REGION. THE POTENTIAL FOR
STRONGER WINDS WILL BE ENHANCED BY DRY AIR REMAINING IN THE MID
LEVELS.

SHOWERS AND STORMS TODAY WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING WIND GUSTS
OF 40 TO 50 MPH AND DANGEROUS CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING. A FEW
STRONGER STORMS MAY PRODUCE SMALL HAIL ESPECIALLY FROM BREVARD AND
OSCEOLA COUNTIES SOUTHWARDS WHERE GREATER DAYTIME HEATING IS
EXPECTED.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A FAST MOVING LINE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL PUSH THROUGH
CENTRAL FLORIDA TODAY AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT. STRONG SOUTHWEST
WINDS ALOFT WILL PUSH THESE STORMS OFFSHORE AT 35 TO 40 MPH.
STORMS WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE WIND GUSTS IN EXCESS OF
35 KNOTS AS THEY MOVE ACROSS INLAND LAKES AND EVENTUALLY
OFFSHORE.

.HIGH WIND IMPACT...
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL INCREASE TO 15 TO 20 MPH LATE THIS
MORNING AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING FRONTAL BOUNDARY. GUSTS UP TO 30
MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE THROUGH THE AFTERNOON OUTSIDE OF ANY STORMS
WITH WINDS VEERING TO THE WEST BY LATE AFTERNOON. THESE WINDS
WILL GENERATE CHOPPY CONDITIONS OVER INLAND LAKES AND THE
INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY...POSING A THREAT TO SMALLER CRAFT. A LAKE
WIND ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR ALL OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS WILL EXIST AT EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA
BEACHES TODAY. THE RIP CURRENTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE AT THEIR STRONGEST
LATE MORNING AND EARLY AFTERNOON. CHECK WITH LIFEGUARDS ABOUT OCEAN
HAZARDS WHEN ARRIVING AT THE BEACH. SWIM ONLY WHERE THERE IS A
LIFEGUARD ON DUTY.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
SOUTHWEST WINDS AROUND 15 TO 20 KNOTS DURING THE DAY WILL BECOME
NORTH-NORTHWEST AND INCREASE TO 20 TO 25 KNOTS LATE TONIGHT BEHIND
A FRONTAL BOUNDARY. SMALL CRAFT OPERATORS SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION
TODAY...WITH AN ADVISORY IN EFFECT STARTING TONIGHT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
RAIN CHANCES WILL REMAIN ELEVATED AS THE FRONT STALLS OVER SOUTH
FLORIDA AND THEN LIFTS BACK INTO CENTRAL FLORIDA THROUGH LATE
WEEK. AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ALONG THE
FRONT BY FRIDAY AND PUSH THE FRONT THROUGH THE STATE ON SATURDAY
LEADING TO DRIER WEATHER BY SUNDAY. BRISK ONSHORE FLOW WILL
CONTINUE TO LEAD TO HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS OVER THE LOCAL
ATLANTIC INTO THURSDAY.

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