THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A WARM FRONT CURRENTLY LOCATED NORTH OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA WILL
CONTINUE TO LIFT RAPIDLY NORTHWARD THIS AFTERNOON. THIS WILL ALLOW
FOR MORE DAYTIME HEATING AND INSTABILITY. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND A
FEW LIGHTNING STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON MAINLY
INLAND FROM THE COAST. DUE TO STRONG LOW LEVEL WINDS...A FEW WIND
GUSTS TO 40 OR 50 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE...SHOULD ANY STRONGER STORMS
DEVELOP. LOCALLY HEAVY DOWNPOURS AND OCCASIONAL LIGHTNING STRIKES
ARE ALSO POSSIBLE. STORM MOTION TODAY WILL BE RAPIDLY TOWARD THE
NORTH AND NORTHEAST AT 35 TO 40 MPH.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
DUE TO THEIR RAPID MOVEMENT...HEAVIER SHOWERS OR STORMS WILL BE
EASILY CAPABLE OF PRODUCING GUSTY WINDS OF AT LEAST 35 KNOTS ON
AREAS LAKES...THE INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY AND NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC.
BOATERS SHOULD BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR STORMS APPROACHING FROM THE
SOUTH THIS AFTERNOON.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
SOUTHEAST WINDS OF 20 TO 25 KNOTS WILL VEER TO SOUTHERLY AND
SLOWLY DECREASE TONIGHT. SEAS OF 7 TO 9 FEET NEAR SHORE AND
9 TO 11 FEET WELL OFFSHORE WILL MAKE FOR ANOTHER DAY OF DANGEROUS
BOATING CONDITIONS FOR OPERATORS OF SMALL CRAFT.

.COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
THE HIGH SEAS WILL PRODUCE BREAKING WAVES OF UP TO AROUND 6 FEET IN
THE SURF ZONE...WHICH COULD PRODUCE MINOR BEACH EROSION AGAIN AROUND
THIS EVENING`S HIGH TIDE...WHICH WILL OCCUR BETWEEN 8 AND 9 PM.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
IN ADDITION TO THE ROUGH SURF...NUMEROUS STRONG RIP CURRENTS ARE
EXPECTED AGAIN TODAY. THERE WILL ALSO BE AN INCREASING LONGSHORE
CURRENT FLOWING FROM SOUTH TO NORTH TODAY. WITH THE SURF BEING ROUGH
ONCE AGAIN...LARGE BREAKING WAVES COULD KNOCK YOU OFF YOUR FEET AND
MAKE YOU MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO BECOMING CAUGHT IN A RIP CURRENT.
ENTERING THE SURF ABOVE YOUR KNEES WILL BE DANGEROUS TODAY.

GIVEN THE ROUGH SURF CONDITIONS...BEACH GOERS ARE STRONGLY ADVISED
TO GET ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON OCEAN HAZARDS FROM THE BEACH PATROL.
IF YOU DECIDE TO ENTER THE WATER...SWIM ONLY WITHIN SIGHT OF A
LIFEGUARD...AND NEVER SWIM ALONE.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT WILL KEEP A THREAT FOR LIGHTNING STORMS IN
THE FORECAST MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.

LINGERING SWELLS WILL LEAD TO AN INCREASED THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS
THROUGH THE EARLY PART OF THE WEEK. WINDS AND SEAS WILL INCREASE
AGAIN WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY BEHIND A COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE...WITH
POOR TO HAZARDOUS SMALL CRAFT BOATING CONDITIONS EXPECTED.


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