1032 AM EDT THU APR 17 2014

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
DAYTIME HEATING AND INCREASING MOISTURE LEVELS TODAY ACROSS THE
TREASURE COAST INTO OKEECHOBEE AND SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF OSCEOLA
COUNTY WILL CONTRIBUTE TO A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR LIGHTNING STORM
DEVELOPMENT THIS AFTERNOON. LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN...CLOUD TO GROUND
LIGHTNING STRIKES AND GUSTY WINDS TO 40 MPH MAY ACCOMPANY A FEW
STORMS DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING HOURS.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
A WARM FRONT OVER SOUTH FLORIDA WILL LIFT BACK INTO CENTRAL
FLORIDA THIS AFTERNOON INTO TONIGHT. BREEZY EAST NORTHEAST FLOW IN
COMBINATION WITH LIFT FROM THE BOUNDARY AND ABUNDANT LOW LEVEL
MOISTURE WILL BRING INCREASING COVERAGE OF SHOWERS TO REGION BY
THIS AFTERNOON AND INTO TONIGHT. WEST SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL
MEAN THAT HEAVIER SHOWERS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MOVE VERY FAR
INLAND...AND A BAND OF LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL MAY SET UP ALONG THE
COAST. THE MOST FAVORABLE REGION FOR THIS TO OCCUR WILL BE AREAS
SOUTH OF CAPE CANAVERAL.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
INCREASING EASTERLY SWELL AND THE RECENT FULL MOON WILL RESULT IN
A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. IN
ADDITION...THE CONTINUING BRISK ONSHORE FLOW WILL BRING ROUGH
SURF. THIS ROUGH SURF CAN KNOCK YOU DOWN AND MAKE YOU SUSCEPTIBLE
TO RIP CURRENTS. CHECK WITH LIFEGUARDS ABOUT OCEAN HAZARDS WHEN
ARRIVING AT THE BEACH AND SWIM ONLY WHERE THERE IS A LIFEGUARD ON
DUTY.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
A TIGHT GRADIENT BETWEEN HIGH PRESSURE MOVING OFF THE EASTERN
SEABOARD AND A LIFTING WARM FRONT OVER SOUTH FLORIDA WILL KEEP
FRESH TO STRONG EAST-NORTHEAST WINDS AROUND 20 TO 25 KNOTS OVER
THE COASTAL WATERS NORTH OF SEBASTIAN INLET THROUGH LATE TONIGHT.
WINDS OVER THE WATERS SOUTH OF SEBASTIAN INLET WILL BE AROUND 15
TO 20 KNOTS. SEAS ACROSS ALL THE WATERS WILL REMAIN AROUND 5 TO 7
FEET NEARSHORE AND UP TO 9 FEET OFFSHORE. A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY
REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR THESE HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
A DEVELOPING UPPER LEVEL LOW WILL DRIVE A SURFACE LOW PRESSURE
SYSTEM FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO ON FRIDAY AND SLOWLY ACROSS
FLORIDA ON SATURDAY. THE LOW IS EXPECTED TO EXIT THE STATE
SATURDAY NIGHT BRINGING A COLD FRONT THROUGH THE PENINSULA.
LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL AND A FEW STRONG STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE
BOTH FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AS THIS SYSTEM MOVES THROUGH. BRISK
SOUTH-SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS WILL BRING LESS THAN FAVORABLE BOATING
CONDITIONS ON SATURDAY...WITH A NORTH NORTHEASTERLY WIND SURGE
BEHIND THE FRONT BRINGING HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS ON SUNDAY.
