THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
DAYTIME HEATING...ADEQUATE MOISTURE AND SEA BREEZE INTERACTIONS IN
THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON AND EVENING WILL GENERATE SCATTERED
SHOWERS AND LIGHTNING STORMS ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. LOW
LEVEL WESTERLY WINDS WILL ALLOW THE WEST COAST SEA BREEZE TO PUSH
WELL INTO THE INTERIOR THIS AFTERNOON AND COLLIDE WITH THE EAST
COAST SEA BREEZE ACROSS INLAND SECTIONS OF THE COASTAL COUNTIES IN
THE LATE AFTERNOON.

STORMS WILL MOVE EASTWARD UP TO 15 TO 20 MPH TOWARD THE EAST
COAST AND NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC WATERS LATE IN THE DAY. STRONGER
STORMS MAY PRODUCE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF ONE TO TWO
INCHES...GUSTY WINDS TO 40 TO 50 MPH AND FREQUENT LIGHTNING.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
LONG PERIOD NORTHEAST SWELLS WILL CONTRIBUTE TO A MODERATE RISK
FOR RIP CURRENTS AT EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA BEACHES TODAY. THE
THREAT FOR STRONG RIP CURRENTS WILL INCREASE AROUND THE TIME OF
LOW TIDE IN THE MID AFTERNOON. ALWAYS SWIM NEAR A LIFE GUARD AND
DO NOT SWIM ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
LATE DAY THUNDERSTORMS WILL MOVE EASTWARD AROUND 15 TO 20 MPH
TOWARD THE INTRACOASTAL AND NEAR SHORE WATERS IN THE LATE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING. SOME OF THE STRONGER STORMS MAY CONTAIN
WIND GUSTS TO 35 TO 40 KNOTS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
THE CHANCE FOR AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS WILL REMAIN ABOVE AVERAGE
THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK AS UNUSUALLY DEEP MOISTURE REMAINS IN
PLACE OVER EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. A FEW STRONG STORMS WILL BE
POSSIBLE EACH DAY. A NORTHEAST SWELL WILL KEEP AN ELEVATED RISK OF
RIP CURRENTS AT EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA BEACHES THROUGH THIS WEEKEND.

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