THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL PRODUCE A MODERATE THREAT FOR
STRONG RIP CURRENTS AND ROUGH SURF. LOCAL BEACH PATROLS REPORTED
SEVERAL DOZEN OCEAN RESCUES OVER THE WEEKEND...INCLUDING ONE SURF

IF YOU BECOME CAUGHT IN A RIP CURRENT...DO NOT PANIC. REMAIN CALM
AND BEGIN TO SWIM PARALLEL TO SHORE. ONCE YOU ARE AWAY FROM THE
SEAWARD PULL OF THE RIP CURRENT...BEGIN TO SWIM BACK TO THE BEACH.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SWIM DIRECTLY AGAINST A RIP CURRENT. EVEN A
STRONG SWIMMER CAN BECOME EXHAUSTED QUICKLY.

NORTH WINDS BEHIND A RECENT FRONT WILL PRODUCE AN ADDITIONAL
HAZARD OF ROUGH SURF AND A SWIFTLY MOVING LONGSHORE CURRENT WITHIN
THE SURF ZONE.

NORTHWEST TO NORTH WINDS NEAR 20 KNOTS NEAR SHORE AND 20 TO 25
KNOTS OFFSHORE WILL KEEP SEAS FROM 5 TO 7 FEET ACROSS THE NEAR
