THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
NUMEROUS SHOWERS CONTAINING OCCASIONAL LIGHTNING STORMS WILL MOVE
QUICKLY NORTHWEST TO NORTH AT AROUND 20 MPH, AND WILL BE CAPABLE
OF PRODUCING DEADLY CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES, BRIEF
HEAVY DOWNPOURS, AND WIND GUSTS AS HIGH AS 30 TO 40 MPH. HEAD
INDOORS IF SKIES LOOK THREATENING, OR YOU HEAR THUNDER.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
LOCALIZED HEAVY RAIN AMOUNTS OF TWO TO THREE INCHES WILL BE
POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY FROM NEAR CAPE CANAVERAL TO LAKE OKEECHOBEE
DUE TO THE POSSIBLY OF TRAINING HEAVY SHOWERS AND ISOLATED
LIGHTNING STORMS. THIS CAN LEAD TO STANDING WATER IN LOW SPOTS AND
ON ROADWAYS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
THE COMBINATION OF OCEAN SWELL AND LOCAL TIDES WILL RESULT IN A
HIGH RISK FOR DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS AT THE CENTRAL FLORIDA
ATLANTIC COAST BEACHES. WHILE THE RIP HAZARD WILL BE IN PLACE ALL
DAY, THE HIGHEST THREAT WILL OCCUR FROM MID MORNING THROUGH LATE
AFTERNOON DUE TO TIDES.

IN ADDITION TO STRONG RIP CURRENTS...LONGSHORE CURRENTS ARE FORECAST.
A SOUTHEAST WIND OF 15 TO 20 MPH WILL RESULT IN A NORTHWARD FLOWING
CURRENT ALONG THE BEACHES. IF YOU FIND YOURSELF MOVING NORTHWARD
ALONG THE COAST INTO DEEP WATER, REMAIN CALM AND DO NOT SWIM
DIRECTLY BACK AGAINST THE CURRENT. SIGNAL FOR HELP AND TRY TO SWIM
AT AN ANGLE TO THE CURRENT AND BACK TO SHORE. AVOID SWIMMING NEAR
PIERS AND JETTIES WHERE SEAWARD FLOWING RIP CURRENTS ARE STRONG.
TO LESSEN YOUR CHANCES OF BECOMING CAUGHT IN A RIP CURRENT,
ALWAYS SWIM WITHIN SIGHT OF A LIFEGUARD AND NEVER SWIM ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
WIND GUSTS UP TO 35 KNOTS WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH LOCALLY HIGHER
WAVES ON AREA LAKES, THE INTRACOASTAL WATERWAYS, AND THE NEAR
SHORE ATLANTIC WATERS.

.WATERSPOUT IMPACT...
MARINE INTERESTS SHOULD BE ALERT FOR THE POTENTIAL OF ISOLATED
WATERSPOUTS THROUGH TONIGHT.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
THE COMBINATION OF WIND CHOP AND SWELL WILL BUILD SEAS TO 6 FEET
OVER THE GULF STREAM RESULTING IN POOR CONDITIONS FOR OPERATORS OF
SMALL CRAFT. SOUTHEAST TO SOUTH WINDS 15 TO 20 KNOTS ARE ALSO
FORECAST OVER THE COASTAL WATERS. SMALL CRAFT SHOULD EXERCISE
CAUTION.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
TROPICAL DEPRESSION NINE, LOCATED OVER THE SOUTHEAST GULF, IS
FORECAST TO MOVE WEST-NORTHWEST AND INTENSIFY INTO A TROPICAL
STORM. THE SYSTEM WILL THEN TURN NORTHWEST AND NORTHWARD BY LATER
TONIGHT, BEFORE TURNING SHARPLY NORTHEASTWARD WEDNESDAY, AND THEN
MOVING ACROSS NORTHERN FLORIDA BY LATE THURSDAY AND THURSDAY
NIGHT.

VERY MOIST AIR ON THE EASTERN SIDE OF THE SYSTEM WILL BRING SHOWERS
AND STORMS WITH VERY HEAVY RAINFALL THROUGH WEDNESDAY, WITH THE
THREAT OF LOCALIZED FLOODING FROM THE SEVERAL ROUNDS OF SHOWERS
AND STORMS THAT ARE EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS. THERE ALSO
EXISTS A RISK FOR INCREASINGLY GUSTY WINDS AND ISOLATED TORNADOES
AS THE CENTER OF THE SYSTEM APPROACHES FLORIDA, ESPECIALLY ON
THURSDAY.

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