THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND LIGHTNING STORMS WILL DEVELOP AGAIN THIS
AFTERNOON AS PREVAILING SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW CONTINUES TO FAVOR THE
EASTERN HALF OF THE FLORIDA PENINSULA FOR PRECIPITATION. AS WITH THE
PREVIOUS FEW DAYS...STORMS WILL MOVE EASTWARDS ALONG THE WEST COAST
SEA BREEZE THROUGH THE AFTERNOON HOURS. A COLLISION OF THE EAST AND
WEST COAST SEA BREEZES IS EXPECTED FROM BREVARD COUNTY SOUTHWARDS
ALONG THE TREASURE COAST LATE IN THE DAY.

OCCASIONAL TO FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES REMAIN THE MAIN HAZARD WITH
ANY STORM THAT DEVELOPS. A FEW STRONGER STORMS WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO
PRODUCE GUSTY WINDS TO AROUND 40 OR 50 MPH AND HEAVY RAINFALL. HEAD
INDOORS AT THE FIRST SIGN OF DARKENING SKIES TO THE WEST...OR IF YOU
SEE LIGHTNING OR HEAR THUNDER.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
STORMS ACROSS THE REGION TODAY WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING WIND
GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 40 MPH AS THEY MOVE TO EAST-NORTHEAST AT 15 TO 20
MPH. MARINERS SHOULD BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR STORMS RAPIDLY
APPROACHING FROM THE WEST AND REMEMBER THAT STRONG WINDS CAN ARRIVE
WELL AHEAD OF THE HEAVY RAIN AND LIGHTNING ASSOCIATED WITH STORMS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
SCATTERED AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED THROUGH
THE WEEKEND WITH ACTIVITY MOVING OFFSHORE EACH EVENING. CLOUD TO
GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES WILL BE THE PRIMARY HAZARD...ALONG WITH
LOCAL HEAVY RAINFALL AND GUSTY WINDS IN STRONGER STORMS. SLIGHTLY
DRIER CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED DURING THE EARLY PART OF NEXT
WEEK...ALLOWING HIGH TEMPERATURES TO CLIMB TO SEVERAL DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL.

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