THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A LINE OF SHOWERS AND ISOLATED LIGHTNING STORMS WILL MOVE TO THE
EAST AT 15 TO 20 MPH ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA TODAY. LAKE AND
NORTHWEST VOLUSIA COUNTIES WILL EXPERIENCE THE SHOWERS AND
ISOLATED STORMS EARLY IN THE MORNING THEN THE REST OF EAST CENTRAL
FLORIDA LATE MORNING THROUGH THIS EVENING WHEN THE FRONT IS
FORECAST TO HAVE CLEARED EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. SCATTERED SHOWERS
AND ISOLATED LIGHTNING STORMS WILL FORM AHEAD OF THE FRONT. THE
LINE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS SHOULD MOVE TO THE EAST AT 20 MPH. LINE
OF SHOWERS. THE PRIMARY WEATHER HAZARDS ASSOCIATED WITH THE
STRONGER STORMS AND HEAVIER SHOWERS WILL BE LIGHTNING
STRIKES...LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN AND AN OCCASIONAL WIND GUST TO 45 MPH.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
THE SAINT JOHNS RIVER AT ASTOR AND NEAR GENEVA HAS DROPPED JUST BELOW
ACTION STAGE. THERE IS THE CHANCE THAT THE COMBINATION OF LOCALLY
HEAVY RAINFALL...NORTHERLY WINDS AND TIDAL EFFECTS COULD CAUSE THE
RIVER TO TEMPORARILY RISE BACK UP TO ACTION STAGE AT ASTOR FROM
WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY.


.FLOOD IMPACT...
REPEATED SHOWERS AND STORMS OVER THE SAME AREA WILL RESULT IN EXCESSIVE
ACCUMULATIONS OF RAIN WATER IN LOW LYING...FLOOD PRONE AREAS AND ON
ROADWAYS. MORNING COMMUTERS SHOULD BE ALERT FOR WET ROADS...REDUCE
YOUR CARS SPEED AND INCREASE THE FOLLOWING DISTANCE BETWEEN CARS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL ONCE AGAIN PRODUCE A MODERATE
THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. THE THREAT WILL BE
HIGHEST FROM LATE AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNSET...DUE TO TIDAL EFFECTS.
CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL BEACH PATROL ABOUT OCEAN HAZARDS WHEN YOU
ARRIVE AT THE BEACH. ALWAYS SWIM WITHIN SIGHT OF A LIFEGUARD AND
NEVER SWIM ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
STORMS WILL ALSO BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING STRONG WIND GUSTS IN
EXCESS OF 35 KNOTS OVER INLAND LAKES...THE INTRACOASTAL AND NEAR
SHORE ATLANTIC WATERS. BOATERS SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE THREAT FOR
STRONG STORMS APPROACHING RAPIDLY FROM THE SOUTHWEST TODAY.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
NORTHERLY WINDS AND TIDAL EFFECTS MAY ALSO CAUSE THE SAINT JOHNS
RIVER AT ASTOR TO TEMPORARILY RISE BACK UP TO ACTION STAGE LATE
WEDNESDAY INTO THURSDAY. THE RIVER IS ALSO FORECAST TO REMAIN AT
OR NEAR ACTION STAGE NEAR GENEVA THROUGH FRIDAY.

BOATING CONDITIONS WILL BECOME HAZARDOUS ONCE AGAIN BY THURSDAY
AS LARGE SWELLS FROM DISTANT HURRICANE GONZALO START TO PROPAGATE
INTO THE LOCAL ATLANTIC WATERS. THIS WILL ALSO SIGNIFICANTLY
INCREASE THE THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES.
