THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
DRIER AIR ALOFT WORKING ACROSS THE AREA WILL RESULT IN A LOWER
COVERAGE OF STORMS ESPECIALLY FROM BREVARD COUNTY TO ORLANDO AND
POINTS NORTHWARD. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP EARLY TO MID
AFTERNOON ALONG THE SEA BREEZE, MAINLY INLAND OF THE TREASURE COAST.
ACTIVITY WILL GRADUALLY SHIFT FARTHER INLAND THROUGH LATE AFTERNOON,
WITH THE HIGHEST CHANCE FOR STORMS ACROSS OKEECHOBEE COUNTY AND THE
WESTERN PORTIONS OF ST. LUCIE AND MARTIN COUNTIES. BOUNDARY
COLLISIONS MAY GENERATE ISOLATED STORMS EARLY IN THE EVENING ACROSS
LAKE COUNTY. STORM MOTION TODAY WILL BE SLOWLY TOWARD THE WEST OR
NORTHWEST.

THE STRONGEST STORMS WILL OCCUR INLAND, WITH THE MAIN THREATS BEING
FREQUENT CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING, GUSTY WINDS TO AROUND 50 MPH
AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL.

WITH DRIER AND COOLER AIR ALOFT, A FEW STORMS FROM OSCEOLA COUNTY TO
AROUND LAKE OKEECHOBEE COULD PRODUCE LOCALLY DAMAGING WIND GUSTS AND
HAIL TO NEAR ONE INCH.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
SLOW STORM MOTION COULD RESULT IN LOCAL 2 TO 3 INCH DOWNPOURS AGAIN
ACROSS INTERIOR SECTIONS, MAINLY FROM LAKE COUNTY TO NEAR THE
KISSIMMEE RIVER AND LAKE OKEECHOBEE. TEMPORARY PONDING OF WATER ON
ROADWAYS AND WITHIN POOR DRAINAGE AREAS MAY OCCUR.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
THERE IS A HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK THROUGH EARLY EVENING. THERE WAS A
RIP CURRENT FATALITY AT PEPPER PARK IN SAINT LUCIE COUNTY ON
SATURDAY AND AROUND 40 RESCUES WERE NECESSARY AT VOLUSIA COUNTY
BEACHES. KEEP IN MIND THAT MOST BEACHES WILL HAVE NO LIFEGUARDS
EARLY THIS EVENING WHEN THE STRONGEST SEAWARD PULL FROM RIP CURRENTS
WILL OCCUR.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A FEW STRONG STORMS NEAR THE BAHAMA BANK SHOULD LINGER INTO EARLY
AFTERNOON THEN DIMINISH. ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SLOW MOVING STORMS
WILL SHIFT INLAND DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THERE IS A
POTENTIAL FOR LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS OVER 40 MPH, ESPECIALLY FROM
OSCEOLA COUNTY TO AROUND LAKE OKEECHOBEE. REMEMBER THAT STRONG AND
GUSTY WINDS OFTEN OCCUR WELL AWAY FROM THE HEAVY RAIN AND LIGHTNING
OCCURRING IN A STORM.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
SOUTHEASTERLY WINDS WILL INCREASE MOISTURE ON MONDAY AND CAUSE THE
COVERAGE OF THUNDERSTORMS TO BE HIGHER THAN THAT OF RECENT
WEEKS, WITH MANY COASTAL AND INLAND COMMUNITIES EXPERIENCING
RAINFALL. HOWEVER, A RETURN TO LOWER MOISTURE LEVELS IS THEN
EXPECTED FOR MUCH OF THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK. WHILE THERE WILL BE
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS, BELOW NORMAL COVERAGE IS FORECAST, ESPECIALLY
NEAR THE EAST COAST.

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