THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
LARGE LONG PERIOD SWELLS FROM DISTANT HURRICANE GONZALO WERE
PROPAGATING INTO THE COASTAL WATERS AND WILL INCREASE THE RIP
CURRENT RISK ESPECIALLY FROM LATE AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNSET. THE
LARGE SWELLS WILL ALSO GENERATE LARGE BREAKING SURF AND POSSIBLY
MINOR BEACH EROSION AROUND THE TIMES OF THE HIGH TIDES THAT ARE
EARLY AND MID AFTERNOON TODAY. BE SURE ASK THE LIFEGUARDS OR BEACH
PATROL ABOUT BEACH HAZARDS AND TO SWIM AT BEACHES PATROLLED BY
THEM.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
BUILDING LONG PERIOD SEAS FROM DISTANT HURRICANE GONZALO PROPAGATING
INTO THE COASTAL WATERS WILL RESULT IN HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS
TODAY AND TONIGHT. SMALL CRAFT OPERATORS SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION
FOR SEAS TO 6 FEET BEYOND 20NM OF SHORE FROM FLAGLER BEACH TO
SEBASTIAN INLET. SEAS CONTINUE TO BUILD TO 7 FEET PROMPTING SMALL
CRAFT EXERCISE CAUTION FOR SEAS BEYOND 20 MILES OF SHORE FROM
FLAGLER BEACH TO SEBASTIAN INLET TONIGHT. NAVIGATING INLETS MAY BE
DANGEROUS DURING TIMES OF THE OUTGOING TIDE WHEN THE OUTGOING TIDE
MEETS THE INCOMING LARGE SWELLS.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
THE SAINT JOHNS RIVER NEAR GENEVA WAS NEAR ACTION STAGE LAST
EVENING. THE RIVER LEVEL IS FORECAST TO GRADUALLY FALL THROUGH
LATE WEEK AND INTO THE UPCOMING WEEKEND.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
BOATING CONDITIONS REMAIN HAZARDOUS DUE TO SEAS BEYOND 20NM OF
SHORE FROM FLAGLER BEACH TO SEBASTIAN INLET THROUGH FRIDAY
MORNING.

ALTHOUGH THE LONG PERIOD SWELL IS SUBSIDING IT WILL STILL HELP TO
PRODUCE AN INCREASED RIP CURRENT RISK THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY.
