THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
AN INCREASE IN LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL LEAD TO A SLIGHT CHANCE
OF THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS INLAND AREAS FROM OSCEOLA
COUNTY INTO OKEECHOBEE COUNTY. THE MAIN THREAT WILL BE CLOUD TO
GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL PRODUCE A MODERATE RISK FOR RIP
CURRENTS AT THE BEACHES OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. WHEN ARRIVING AT
THE BEACH CHECK WITH LIFEGUARDS FOR THE LATEST HAZARD INFORMATION AND
OCEAN CONDITIONS. ONLY ENTER THE WATER NEAR A LIFEGUARD AND NEVER
SWIM ALONE.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
EASTERLY WINDS WILL INCREASE TO 15 TO 20 KNOTS OFFSHORE THIS
AFTERNOON...LEADING TO POOR BOATING CONDITIONS FOR SMALL CRAFT
ACROSS THE OPEN ATLANTIC WATERS OF BREVARD COUNTY AND THE TREASURE
COAST. SMALL CRAFT SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION IN THESE AREAS IF
VENTURING FAR FROM SHORE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED EACH AFTERNOON...WITH THE
GREATEST COVERAGE SOUTH OF ORLANDO AND CAPE CANAVERAL. THE STORMS
WILL MOVE FROM INLAND AREAS TOWARD AND OFFSHORE THE EAST COAST.
MEANWHILE...A DEVELOPING AREA OF LOW PRESSURE WELL EAST OF THE
FLORIDA COAST IS FORECAST TO MOVE TOWARD THE CAROLINA COASTLINE
OVER THE WEEKEND. THIS SYSTEM WILL LIKELY GENERATE A LONG PERIOD
SWELL OVER THE LOCAL ATLANTIC WATERS WHICH WILL RAISE THE RIP
CURRENT RISK TO A HIGH LEVEL ALONG AREA BEACHES THROUGH MUCH OF
THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. NUMEROUS...DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS ARE
LIKELY! CHECK WITH BEACH PATROLS BEFORE ENTERING THE SURF THIS
WEEKEND AND REMEMBER TO NEVER SWIM ALONE.

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