THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
THE STALLED FRONTAL BOUNDARY THAT HAS BEEN ACROSS CENTRAL FLORIDA
FOR THE PAST FEW DAYS HAS MERGED WITH AN EASTERLY WAVE JUST TO THE
EAST OF THE STATE THIS MORNING. THIS WILL SLOWLY PUSH THE BOUNDARY
WEST ACROSS THE PENINSULA THROUGH TONIGHT.

AS WITH THE PAST FEW DAYS...THE PRESENCE OF THESE BOUNDARIES COUPLED
WITH VERY DEEP MOISTURE AND DAYTIME HEATING WILL RESULT IN ANOTHER
AFTERNOON OF NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND SCATTERED LIGHTNING STORMS. THE
GREATEST CHANCE FOR STORMS NEAR THE COAST WILL BE THROUGH EARLY
AFTERNOON...AS DEVELOPING EASTERLY FLOW FOCUSES HIGHER RAIN CHANCES
WESTWARD OVER THE INTERIOR FROM LATE AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY EVENING.

THE MAIN THREATS FROM TODAY`S STORMS ONCE AGAIN 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.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
LOCALIZED FLOODING CONTINUES TO BE A CONCERN ACROSS EAST CENTRAL
FLORIDA. STRONGER SHOWERS AND STORMS TODAY WILL BE CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING 1 TO 3 INCHES OF RAINFALL IN A 60 TO 90 MINUTE PERIOD
WITH HIGHER AMOUNTS IN A FEW SPOTS. ANY HEAVY RAINFALL ON ALREADY
SATURATED GROUND WILL AGGRAVATE ANY ONGOING STANDING WATER AND
FLOODING ISSUES AND LEAD TO ADDITIONAL FLOODING ESPECIALLY IN LOW
LYING AREAS.

MOTORISTS ARE REMINDED TO NEVER DRIVE OVER WATER COVERED ROADS AS
THE WATER MAY BE TOO DEEP TO ALLOW YOUR VEHICLE TO CROSS SAFELY AND
MAY OBSCURE WASHOUTS...CULVERTS OR OTHER LOW SPOTS.

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

.WATERSPOUT IMPACT...
ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS REMAIN FAVORABLE FOR DEVELOPMENT OF FUNNEL
CLOUDS OR WATERSPOUTS NEAR OR OVER THE INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY...THE
NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC...AND THE NORTH SHORE OF LAKE OKEECHOBEE.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
THE SAINT JOHNS RIVER AT ASTOR IS NOW 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.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL 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...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
RAINFALL CHANCES WILL REMAIN ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.
THE THREAT FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CONTINUE WITH AGGRAVATION
OF STAND WATER PROBLEMS AND INUNDATION OF ROADS AND OTHER POORLY
DRAINED URBAN AND LOW LYING AREAS POSSIBLE. A FRONTAL BOUNDARY
MOVING INTO THE AREA EARLY IN THE WEEK MAY BRING SLIGHTLY DRIER
CONDITIONS BY MID WEEK.

.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 OR
PROPERTY.
