THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
THE LINE OF STRONG LIGHTNING STORMS HAS MOVED OFFSHORE AND WITH THEM
MUCH OF THE DEEP MOISTURE. HOWEVER...A STRONG UPPER LOW PRESSURE
SYSTEM WILL TRACK ACROSS NORTH FLORIDA TODAY. RESIDUAL MOISTURE AND
SOME DAYTIME HEATING FROM PARTIAL SUNSHINE MAY ALLOW SCATTERED
SHOWERS AND ISOLATED LIGHTNING STORMS TO DEVELOP. THE MOST LIKELY
TIME FOR STORMS WILL BE FROM MID TO LATE AFTERNOON DURING THE TIME
OF PEAK HEATING.

WHILE LITTLE IN THE WAY OF SHOWERS AND STORMS ARE EXPECTED FOR THE
REST OF THE DAY...ANY STORMS THAT DO DEVELOP WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL
FOR GUSTY WINDS TO 40 MPH AND SMALL HAIL DUE TO THE COLD
TEMPERATURES ALOFT. SHOWERS AND STORMS THAT POP UP WILL MOVE RAPIDLY
FROM SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST AT 35 MPH.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
THE MAIN AREA OF STORMS HAS MOVED WELL OFFSHORE. THERE IS A SLIGHT
CHANCE FOR STORMS TO REDEVELOP OVER THE MAINLAND AND APPROACH THE
COASTAL WATERS FROM THE SOUTHWEST. ANY STORMS THAT CROSS THE
INTRACOASTAL WATERS WILL HAVE GUSTY WIND TO 35 KNOTS AND THE
POTENTIAL FOR SMALL HAIL.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
SOUTHERLY WINDS AROUND 20 KNOTS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH MID MORNING
OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS NORTH OF SEBASTIAN INLET AND AROUND 15 TO
20 KNOTS SOUTH. SEAS WILL BE UP TO 7 TO 8 FEET OVER THE GULF
STREAM THIS MORNING BEFORE SUBSIDING. WINDS WILL DIMINISH TO
AROUND 15 KNOTS AS THEY VEER TO THE SOUTHWEST LATER THIS AFTERNOON.
A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY REMAIN IN EFFECT FOR THESE AREAS. BOATERS
SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION IN THE NEARSHORE WATERS AND SOUTH OF
SEBASTIAN INLET.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
EASTERLY SWELLS AND THE RECENT FULL MOON WILL CONTINUE TO RESULT
IN A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. CHECK
WITH LIFEGUARDS ABOUT OCEAN HAZARDS WHEN ARRIVING AT THE BEACH AND
SWIM ONLY WHERE THERE IS A LIFEGUARD ON DUTY.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL CONTINUE TO SLOWLY MOVE EAST OF THE
STATE ON SUNDAY. A NORTH-NORTHEASTERLY WIND SURGE ON THE BACK SIDE
OF THE LOW WILL BRING HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS ON SUNDAY WITH
GUSTS NEAR GALE FORCE POSSIBLE.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON.
