THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
THE STALLED BOUNDARY THAT HAS BEEN IN PLACE FOR THE PAST WEEK WILL
CONTINUE TO WEAKEN THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING...ALLOWING ONSHORE
FLOW TO DEEPEN ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. DEEP MOISTURE WILL
REMAIN IN PLACE OVER THE REGION...WHICH IN COMBINATION WITH
DAYTIME HEATING WILL RESULT IN SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND
ISOLATED LIGHTNING STORMS OVER THE INTERIOR FROM MID AFTERNOON INTO
THE EARLY EVENING HOURS. STORMS SHOULD WIND DOWN AFTER SUNSET BUT
BRIEF MODERATE TO HEAVY SHOWERS COMING OFF THE ATLANTIC WILL
IMPACT THE COAST THROUGH THE NIGHT.

THE EASTERLY FLOW WILL FOCUS HIGHER RAIN CHANCES WESTWARD OVER
THE INTERIOR MAINLY WEST OF LAKE GEORGE...ORLANDO AND DISNEY AND
INTO WEST FLORIDA FROM LATE AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY EVENING.
SHOWERS AND STORMS SHOULD MOVE TO THE WEST AT 10 MPH. SLOW
MOVEMENT WILL ALLOW FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL ACCUMULATIONS AWAY
FROM THE COAST.

THE MAIN THREATS FROM TODAY`S STORMS WILL BE TORRENTIAL RAINFALL
AND CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES. BRIEF WIND GUSTS TO 40 MPH
WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE IN SOME OF THE STRONGER STORMS...WHICH WILL
MOVE TOWARD THE WEST TO NORTHWEST AT ABOUT 10 MPH.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
THE SAINT JOHNS RIVER AT ASTOR REMAINS AT ACTION STAGE AND EVEN
WITHOUT ADDITIONAL RAIN...WILL LIKELY TO STAY AT OR NEAR THAT LEVEL
FOR SEVERAL MORE DAYS...CAUSING MINOR INUNDATION OF PROPERTY AND
RIVER ACCESSES IN THE AREA.

THE HEAVY RAINFALL WILL ALSO ADD TO THE WATER LEVELS IN
CREEKS...RIVERS AND LAKES THAT HAVE RECEIVED SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS
OF RAIN THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCAL WIND GUSTS TO
AROUND 35 KNOTS OVER THE LOCAL ATLANTIC AS WELL AS INLAND LAKES AND
THE INTRACOASTAL WATERS. BOATERS SHOULD BE ALERT FOR STORMS
APPROACHING FROM THE EAST AND SOUTHEAST TODAY. SEEK SAFE HARBOR IF
SKIES LOOK THREATENING.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO PRODUCE MODERATE
THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS AND ROUGH SURF AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. THE
THREAT WILL BE HIGHEST BETWEEN ABOUT NOON AND 6 PM DUE TO TIDAL
EFFECTS. 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...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
EASTERLY FLOW WILL SHIFT THE BEST RAIN CHANCES OVER THE INTERIOR
THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEKEND WITH RAINFALL CHANCES REMAINING
ABOVE NORMAL. A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO MOVE ACROSS
NORTH FLORIDA EARLY NEXT WEEK BRINGING ANOTHER WEAKENING FRONTAL
BOUNDARY INTO THE CENTRAL FLORIDA PENINSULA THROUGH MID WEEK. THE
THREAT FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE
PERIOD...WITH AGGRAVATION OF STANDING WATER PROBLEMS AND
INUNDATION OF ROADS AND OTHER POORLY DRAINED URBAN AND LOW LYING
AREAS POSSIBLE.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
AS FLOODING REMAINS A CONCERN...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.
