THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL DEVELOP ALONG THE COAST BY MIDDAY AS THE
EAST COAST SEA BREEZE DEVELOPS AND MOVES INLAND. A GRADUAL
INCREASE IN COVERAGE AND INTENSITY WILL OCCUR THROUGH LATE
AFTERNOON AS THE SEA BREEZE MOVES INLAND AND COLLIDES WITH THE WEST
COAST SEA BREEZE OVER THE INTERIOR.

DRIER AIR MOVING INTO THE REGION ABOVE THE SURFACE WILL ENHANCE
THE POTENTIAL FOR STRONG WINDS THIS AFTERNOON...ESPECIALLY DURING
THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON. STRONGER STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING WIND GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 50 MPH ALONG WITH FREQUENT
LIGHTNING STRIKES.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
STORMS THAT DEVELOP TODAY WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE VERY
HEAVY LOCAL RAIN WITH AMOUNTS BETWEEN 2 AND 3 INCHES AN HOUR
POSSIBLE. THIS WILL CAUSE CONSIDERABLE WATER PONDING ON ROADWAYS
AND MINOR FLOODING OF LOW LYING AND POOR DRAINAGE
AREAS...ESPECIALLY IN LOCATIONS THAT HAVE SEEN HEAVY RAINFALL OVER
THE PAST FEW DAYS.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL AFFECT THE COASTAL AND INTRACOASTAL
WATERS THROUGH MID AFTERNOON AS THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE DEVELOPS
AND MOVE INLAND. ACTIVITY WILL SHIFT INLAND INTO THE AFTERNOON AND
EVENING AFFECTING INLAND LAKES AND WATERWAYS AS THE EAST COAST
SEA BREEZE PUSHES INTO THE INTERIOR. GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 35 KNOTS
WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH STRONGER STORMS AS ACTIVITY MOVES OFF TO THE
NORTHEAST AT AROUND 10 MPH.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A LINGERING EAST SWELL WILL RESULT IN A MODERATE RISK. THE
GREATEST CHANCE FOR STRONG RIP CURRENTS SHOULD BE THIS MORNING AND
EARLY AFTERNOON DUE TO TIDAL EFFECTS. CHECK WITH OCEAN RESCUE
PERSONNEL ABOUT OCEAN HAZARDS WHEN ARRIVING AT THE BEACH AND ONLY
ENTER THE SURF NEAR A LIFEGUARD.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
A CONTINUED LIGHT SOUTH WIND FLOW WILL KEEP HIGH MOISTURE OVER
THE AREA INTO LATE WEEK. THIS WILL RESULT IN SCATTERED AFTERNOON
TO EVENING STORMS WITH THE HIGHEST COVERAGE FAVORING THE INTERIOR.
A MORE SOUTHWEST WIND FLOW LATE IN THE WEEK SHOULD START TO BRING
A HIGHER COVERAGE BACK TO THE COAST.

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