THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A MOIST ATMOSPHERE COUPLED WITH SURFACE HEATING AND WEST STEERING
LEVEL WINDS WILL PUSH SCATTERED LIGHTNING STORMS ACROSS EAST CENTRAL
FLORIDA FROM EARLY THROUGH MID AFTERNOON. THERE WILL BE A CHANCE FOR
A FEW STRONG STORMS. THE MAIN CHANCE FOR STRONG STORMS SHOULD BE ALONG
THE SPACE AND TREASURE COASTS TO LAKE OKEECHOBEE WHERE BEST DAYTIME
HEATING OCCURS AND AN EAST COAST SEA BREEZE FORMS.

LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL...GUSTY WINDS TO 45 MPH...FREQUENT LIGHTNING
STRIKES AND POSSIBLY A BRIEF TORNADO WILL OCCUR WITHIN THE
STRONGEST STORMS. STORM MOTION WILL BE TOWARD THE EAST AT 10 TO 15
MPH.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
STRONGER AND SLOWER MOVING STORMS...WHICH FORM WHERE THE EAST COAST
SEA BREEZE BOUNDARY PUSHES INLAND SOUTH OF CAPE CANAVERAL...COULD
RESULT IN QUICK 2 INCH DOWNPOURS. MINOR FLOODING OF POOR DRAINAGE
AREAS MAY OCCUR.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
SCATTERED STORMS WILL MOVE TO THE EAST AT 10 TO 15 MPH AND IF AN
EAST COAST SEA BREEZE FORMS...STRONG STORMS WITH GUSTY WINDS TO 40
MPH WILL OCCUR. THE GREATEST CHANCE WILL BE SOUTH OF CANAVERAL TO
THE TREASURE COAST AND LAKE OKEECHOBEE. BOATERS SHOULD MOVE TO
SAFE HARBOR AS DARKENING SKIES ARE OBSERVED ON THE WESTERN
HORIZON.

.WATERSPOUT IMPACT...
BOUNDARY INTERACTIONS WITHIN ENVIRONMENTS OF STRONG HEATING MAY
PRODUCE A BRIEF WATERSPOUT OVER LARGE LAKES AND OR ALONG THE
COAST.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
SCATTERED STORMS OVER THE WEEKEND WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING
LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN...GUSTY WINDS AND LIGHTNING. DRIER AIR NEAR
THE SURFACE RIDGE AXIS WILL MOVE OVER CENTRAL FLORIDA DURING THE
EARLY TO MIDDLE PART OF NEXT WEEK AND SUPPRESS SHOWER AND
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY. HOT WEATHER IS EXPECTED WITH HIGHS INTO
THE MID 90S ACROSS THE INTERIOR THROUGH MUCH OF NEXT WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT ANTICIPATED TODAY.
