THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A LINE OF SHOWERS AND STRONG STORMS ASSOCIATED WITH A STRONG COLD
FRONT OVER THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE WILL MOVE INTO EAST CENTRAL
FLORIDA LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. DAYTIME HEATING MAY
ALLOW ISOLATED SHOWERS AND STORMS TO DEVELOP ACROSS THE REGION
THIS AFTERNOON AHEAD OF THIS LINE.

THE GREATEST THREAT FOR STRONGER STORMS WILL BE NORTH OF A
KISSIMMEE TO MELBOURNE LINE...ESPECIALLY ALONG AND NORTH OF
I-4...STARTING AROUND SUNSET AND CONTINUING THROUGH THE EVENING
HOURS AS THE LINE OF STRONG STORMS MOVES INTO THE REGION. SOME
WEAKENING IS EXPECTED AS THIS LINE MOVES THROUGH EAST CENTRAL
FLORIDA LATER TONIGHT.

THE PRIMARY THREATS WITH ANY STORMS TODAY WILL BE CLOUD TO GROUND
LIGHTNING AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN. A FEW STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING STRONG WIND GUSTS UP TO 50 MPH. STORM MOTION WILL BE
QUICKLY OFF TO THE NORTHEAST AT AROUND 35 TO 40 MPH.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
SCATTERED LIGHTNING STORMS WILL MOVE OFF TO THE NORTHEAST ACROSS
THE PENINSULA AND PUSH OFFSHORE AT 35 TO 40 MPH LATER THIS
AFTERNOON AND EVENING. A FEW OF THESE STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING STRONG WIND GUSTS OVER 35 KNOTS.

BOATERS ON INLAND LAKES AND THE INTRACOASTAL WATERS SHOULD ALSO
BE ALERT AS STORMS APPROACH QUICKLY FROM THE WEST. HAZARDOUS
BOATING CONDITIONS CAN QUICKLY DEVELOP DUE TO GUSTY WINDS WHICH
MAY OCCUR WELL AHEAD OF RAIN AND LIGHTNING. BE PREPARED TO SEEK
SAFE HARBOR WELL BEFORE A STORM REACHES YOUR AREA.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
GUSTY SOUTH-SOUTHWEST WINDS OF 15 TO 20 KNOTS AND STEEP WAVES UP
TO 6 FEET WILL CONTINUE OVER THE LOCAL ATLANTIC THROUGH THIS
AFTERNOON. SMALL CRAFT SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION. WINDS WILL BECOME
NORTHWEST BEHIND A STRONG COLD FRONT LATE THIS EVENING...WITH SPEEDS
INCREASING TO 20 TO 25 KNOTS. SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES WILL GO INTO
EFFECT THIS EVENING AND OVERNIGHT FOR ALL MARINE LEGS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A NORTHEAST SWELL WILL PRODUCE A MODERATE THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS
AT THE BEACHES OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA TODAY. THE THREAT WILL BE
GREATEST DURING THE OUTGOING TIDE THROUGH EARLY THIS AFTERNOON.
ALWAYS SWIM WITHIN SIGHT OF A LIFEGUARD.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS WILL PRODUCE VERY HAZARDOUS BOATING
CONDITIONS INTO EARLY WEDNESDAY WITH SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES IN
PLACE OVER THE ATLANTIC WATERS AND ROUGH CONDITIONS ON THE
INTRACOASTAL. BOATING CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN POOR TO
HAZARDOUS THROUGH THURSDAY ESPECIALLY IN THE GULF STREAM.

NEAR RECORD COOL HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE POSSIBLE ON TUESDAY
BEHIND THE COLD FRONT. WHILE WIDESPREAD FREEZING TEMPERATURES ARE
NOT EXPECTED...THE COMBINATION OF COLD TEMPERATURES AND NORTH
WINDS WILL PRODUCE WIND CHILL VALUES BETWEEN 28 AND 35 DEGREES
WEDNESDAY MORNING FROM INTERIOR BREVARD AND OSCEOLA COUNTIES
NORTHWARD. COOL TEMPERATURES WILL SLOWLY MODIFY THROUGH THE
REMAINDER OF THE WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE
IF NEEDED LATER THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING.
