.NOW...

THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE WILL PUSH INLAND ACROSS THE COASTAL
COUNTIES AND INTO THE INTERIOR THROUGH EARLY EVENING.  SCATTERED
LIGHTNING STORMS WILL AFFECT AREAS AROUND LAKE OKEECHOBEE FROM
INDIANTOWN AND PORT MAYACA TO OKEECHOBEE CITY AS THE SEA BREEZE
INTERACTS WITH THE LAKE BREEZE. FARTHER NORTH...SCATTERED LIGHTNING
STORMS WILL DEVELOP OVER VOLUSIA...NORTH BREVARD...SEMINOLE...ORANGE
AND LAKE COUNTIES WHERE THERE IS SOME UPPER SUPPORT. THERE IS ENOUGH
WESTERLY STEERING FLOW TO PUSH SOME OF THE STORMS OFF THE VOLUSIA
COAST WHICH WILL BE A HAZARD TO BOATERS ON THE INTRACOASTAL OR
ATLANTIC WATERS.

MUCH LIKE YESTERDAY...STORM MOTION WILL BE SLOW AND ERRATIC THIS
AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. THERE WILL ALSO BE THE CHANCE FOR
STRONG TO ISOLATED SEVERE STORMS WITH DAMAGING WIND GUSTS...LARGE
HAIL TO AROUND ONE INCH OR SO IN DIAMETER...FREQUENT LIGHTNING...AND
TORRENTIAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES IN A 60 TO 90 MINUTE
PERIOD.

THE THREAT FOR DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS WILL BE HIGH ALONG THE VOLUSIA
AND BREVARD COUNTY BEACHES...AND MODERATE ALONG THE TREASURE COAST
BEACHES OF INDIAN RIVER...SAINT LUCIE AND MARTIN COUNTIES. REMEMBER
TO SWIM ONLY WITHIN SIGHT OF A LIFEGUARD TODAY...AND NEVER SWIM
ALONE.

CAUSE TEMPORARY FLOODING OF SOME ROADS AND LOW LYING AREAS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...

STRONG RIP CURRENTS AT THE BEACHES TODAY ALONG VOLUSIA AND BREVARD
COUNTIES. A MODERATE RIP CURRENT RISK WILL EXIST FOR INDIAN
