THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
THIS AFTERNOON...INSTABILITY AND ADEQUATE MOISTURE WILL PROMOTE
AN ISOLATED THREAT FOR LIGHTNING STORMS ACROSS THE INTERIOR ALONG
THE INLAND MOVING EAST COAST SEA BREEZE. SHOULD ANY STORMS DEVELOP
TODAY...THE MAIN THREATS WILL BE OCCASIONAL LIGHTNING...BRIEF
DOWNPOURS...AND GUSTY WINDS OF 30 TO 40 MPH. MOVEMENT WILL BE
TOWARDS THE WEST-NORTHWEST AT AROUND 10 MPH.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
INCREASINGLY ROUGH SURF WILL CAUSE HAZARDOUS SWIMMING CONDITIONS AT
EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA BEACHES TODAY. ROUGH SURF CAN OFTEN BE MUCH
MORE DANGEROUS THAN IT APPEARS WHILE STANDING ON THE BEACH. HEAVY
BREAKING WAVES CAN KNOCK YOU OFF A SANDBAR INTO DEEPER WATER.

THERE WILL BE A MODERATE RISK OF STRONG RIP CURRENTS NEAR JETTIES
AND PIERS. THE GREATEST THREAT WILL BE THIS AFTERNOON BETWEEN 4 PM
AND SUNSET. ASK THE BEACH PATROL FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT
OCEAN HAZARDS. TO DECREASE YOUR CHANCE OF BEING CAUGHT IN A RIP
CURRENT SWIM ONLY WITHIN SIGHT OF A LIFEGUARD...AND NEVER SWIM
ALONE. HEED THE ADVICE OF THE BEACH PATROL.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
INCREASING EASTERLY WINDS TO 15 TO 20 KNOTS OFFSHORE NORTH OF
SEBASTIAN INLET WILL CAUSE POOR BOATING CONDITIONS ACROSS THE OPEN
ATLANTIC WATERS FOR SMALL CRAFT. SMALL CRAFT SHOULD EXERCISE
CAUTION IN THESE AREAS IF VENTURING FAR FROM SHORE.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
INCREASINGLY DRY VEGETATION AND OCCASIONALLY BREEZY EASTERLY WINDS
THIS AFTERNOON WILL RESULT IN A MODERATE FIRE DANGER ACROSS EAST
CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
ISOLATED SHOWERS ARE FORECAST FOR MUCH OF THE UPCOMING WEEK. A WEAK
AND FAST MOVING EAST COAST SEA BREEZE WILL KEEP A LOW THREAT FOR
AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS WELL INLAND FROM THE EAST COAST EACH DAY.

POOR BOATING CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE INTO EARLY NEXT
WEEK OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...AS A STRONG HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE
NORTH OF FLORIDA INCREASES ONSHORE WINDS AND BUILDS SEAS. THERE
WILL ALSO BE AN ELEVATED THREAT FOR ROUGH SURF AND DANGEROUS RIP
CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.

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