THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
MOIST SOUTHEASTERLY FLOW WILL RESULT IN NUMEROUS FAST MOVING
SHOWERS AND ISOLATED LIGHTNING STORMS INTO TONIGHT. THE ACTIVITY
WILL MOVE NORTHWEST OR NORTH AT AROUND 20 MPH, AND WILL BE
CAPABLE OF PRODUCING DEADLY CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES,
BRIEF PASSING 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 THE CAPE THROUGH 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 RISK WILL BE IN PLACE ALL
DAY, THE HIGHEST THREAT WILL OCCUR FROM MID MORNING THROUGH
LATE AFTERNOON.

IN ADDITION TO STRONG RIP CURRENTS...STRONG LONGSHORE CURRENTS
WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE TODAY. 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.

IF HEADED TO THE BEACH, CHECK WITH THE BEACH PATROL FOR ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION ABOUT TODAY`S OCEAN HAZARDS. 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...
FAST MOVING SHOWERS AND EMBEDDED LIGHTNING STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO
MOVE ACROSS THE ATLANTIC WATERS AND POINTS WELL INLAND. WIND GUSTS
UP TO 35 KNOTS WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH LOCALLY HIGHER WAVES ON AREA
LAKES, THE INTRACOASTAL WATER WAYS, AND NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC
WATERS.

.WATERSPOUT IMPACT...
MARINE INTERESTS SHOULD ALSO BE ALERT FOR THE POTENTIAL OF
WATERSPOUTS TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
THE COMBINATION OF WIND CHOP AND SWELL WILL CAUSE SEAS TO BUILD
AS HIGH AS 6 FEET OVER THE GULF STREAM RESULTING IN POOR CONDITIONS
FOR OPERATORS OF SMALL CRAFT. SOUTHEAST TO SOUTH WINDS INCREASING
TO 15 TO 20 KNOTS ARE ALSO FORECAST OVER THE COASTAL WATERS TODAY
AND TONIGHT. 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 THROUGH THIS MORNING AND
EVENTUALLY 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 OVERSPREAD
THE REGION THROUGH THURSDAY. SHOWERS AND STORMS WITH VERY HEAVY
RAINFALL ARE EXPECTED TO BECOME NUMEROUS 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.

PERSONS IN CENTRAL FLORIDA SHOULD FOLLOW THE PROGRESS OF THE
DEVELOPING SYSTEM. LISTEN FOR UPDATED FORECASTS AND ADVISORIES
FROM THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER, AND FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE IN MELBOURNE.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND REPORT RAINFALL
AMOUNTS OVER 2 TO 3 INCHES TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE.
