THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
EASTERLY FLOW WILL BRING IN A SLIGHTLY DRIER AIR MASS ACROSS EAST
CENTRAL FLORIDA TODAY. HOWEVER...THERE REMAINS ENOUGH DEEP MOISTURE
FOR SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND ISOLATED LIGHTNING STORMS
THIS AFTERNOON.

ISOLATED SHOWERS OVER THE ATLANTIC AND THE ADJACENT EAST COAST
COUNTIES WILL DECREASE THIS AFTERNOON...IN FAVOR OF INCREASING
RAINFALL COVERAGE MAINLY WEST OF LAKE GEORGE...ORLANDO AND DISNEY
AND INTO WEST FLORIDA FROM LATE AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY EVENING.

THE MAIN THREATS FROM STORMS TODAY WILL BE BRIEF TORRENTIAL
RAINFALL AND CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES. LOCALIZED WIND GUSTS
TO 40 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE IN SOME OF THE STRONGER STORMS. ACTIVITY
WILL MOVE TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST AT AROUND 10 MPH.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
WHILE COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL NOT BE AS HIGH IN MANY
LOCATIONS AS PREVIOUS DAYS...HIGH LOW LEVEL MOISTURE AND SLOW
STORM MOVEMENT WILL CONTINUE THE THREAT FOR A FEW AREAS OF LOCALLY
HEAVY RAINFALL. THE HEAVIEST SHOWERS AND STORMS MAY PRODUCE 1 TO
2 INCHES OF RAINFALL IN ONE HOUR OR LESS...WHICH WILL AGGRAVATE
ANY STANDING WATER AND FLOODING ISSUES AND LEAD TO ADDITIONAL
FLOODING ESPECIALLY IN LOW LYING AREAS. THE THREAT FOR LOCALLY
HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE HIGHEST OVER THE CENTRAL FLORIDA INTERIOR
THIS AFTERNOON.

MOTORISTS ARE REMINDED TO NEVER DRIVE OVER WATER COVERED ROADS AS
THE WATER MAY BE TOO DEEP TO ALLOW YOUR VEHICLE TO CROSS SAFELY AND
MAY OBSCURE WASHOUTS...CULVERTS OR OTHER LOW SPOTS.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A FEW STRONGER SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCAL
WIND GUSTS UP TO 35 KNOTS OVER INLAND LAKES THIS AFTERNOON.
BOATERS SHOULD BE ALERT FOR STORMS APPROACHING FROM THE EAST AND
SOUTHEAST TODAY. SEEK SAFE HARBOR IF SKIES LOOK THREATENING.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
THE SAINT JOHNS RIVER AT ASTOR REMAINS AT ACTION STAGE AND IS
FORECAST TO REMAIN NEARLY STEADY THROUGH THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS...
CAUSING MINOR INUNDATION OF PROPERTY AND RIVER ACCESSES IN THE
AREA.

ANY ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAINFALL FOCUSED WITHIN DRAINAGE BASINS WILL
ADD TO THE WATER LEVELS IN CREEKS...RIVERS AND LAKES THAT HAVE
RECEIVED SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF RAIN THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO PRODUCE A MODERATE
THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS AND ROUGH SURF AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. CHECK
WITH YOUR LOCAL BEACH PATROL FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT OCEAN
HAZARDS. SWIM ONLY WITHIN SIGHT OF A LIFEGUARD...AND NEVER SWIM
ALONE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO MOVE ACROSS NORTH FLORIDA AND
INTO THE ATLANTIC EARLY THIS WEEK BRINGING ANOTHER FRONTAL
BOUNDARY INTO THE CENTRAL FLORIDA PENINSULA THROUGH MID WEEK. THE
THREAT FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CONTINUE THROUGH AT LEAST
TUESDAY...WITH AGGRAVATION OF STANDING WATER PROBLEMS AND INUNDATION
OF ROADS AND OTHER POORLY DRAINED URBAN AND LOW LYING AREAS
POSSIBLE. ANOTHER FRONTAL BOUNDARY IS FORECAST TO MOVE INTO THE
REGION BY THE END OF THE WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
AS LOCAL FLOODING REMAINS A CONCERN ACROSS THE REGION...SPOTTERS ARE
REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE IF ANY WARNINGS
ARE ISSUED FOR YOUR AREA. PLEASE CONTINUE TO REPORT ANY RAINFALL
AMOUNTS OF 2 INCHES OR MORE...AND REPORT ANY INSTANCES OF
SIGNIFICANT FLOODING OF PROPERTY OR ROADS.
