THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
ADEQUATE MOISTURE...DAYTIME HEATING AND LOW LEVEL EAST SOUTHEAST
WINDS WILL ALLOW A DIFFUSE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE TO PUSH INTO THE
INTERIOR THROUGH LATE AFTERNOON. THIS WILL ALLOW SCATTERED SHOWERS
TO DEVELOP ACROSS THE INTERIOR THIS AFTERNOON AND PUSH WEST TOWARD
LAKE COUNTY AND WEST OF THE KISSIMMEE RIVER BY EARLY EVENING. A
FEW LIGHTNING STORMS MAY DEVELOP IN THE LATE AFTERNOON WITH
LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF ONE TO TWO INCHES...GUSTY WINDS
TO 40 MPH AND OCCASIONAL CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES.

A LONG EAST FETCH ACROSS THE ATLANTIC WILL CONTINUE ROUGH SURF AND
MODERATE SWELLS AT EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA BEACHES TODAY. SOME MINOR
BEACH EROSION MAY OCCUR AROUND THE TIME OF HIGH TIDE AROUND 5 PM.
ROUGH SURF AND BREAKING WAVES WILL POSE A HAZARD FOR OCEAN
SWIMMERS. ASK THE BEACH PATROL ABOUT OCEAN HAZARDS WHEN YOU ARRIVE
AT THE BEACH AND SWIM NEAR A LIFE GUARD.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS IS EXPECTED AT EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA
BEACHES TODAY. IF CAUGHT IN A RIP CURRENT...SWIM PARALLEL TO THE
BEACH UNTIL OUT OF THE PULL OF THE CURRENT AND THEN SWIM BACK TO
SHORE.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
A MODERATE TO FRESH ONSHORE BREEZE COMBINED WITH LARGE WAVES OVER
THE OPEN ATLANTIC WATERS WILL CONTINUE TO GENERATE HAZARDOUS
CONDITIONS FOR SMALL CRAFT TODAY. A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY CONTINUES
OVER THE COASTAL WATERS THROUGH EARLY THIS EVENING.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
AN EAST SWELL EARLY THIS WEEK WILL KEEP THE RIP CURRENT RISK
ELEVATED INTO WEDNESDAY.
