THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
MOIST EASTERLY FLOW WILL RESULT IN FAST MOVING SHOWERS AND ISOLATED
LIGHTNING STORMS INTO TONIGHT. THE ACTIVITY WILL MOVE WESTWARD AT
AROUND 20 MPH, AND WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING DEADLY CLOUD TO
GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES, BRIEF PASSING HEAVY DOWNPOURS OF UP TO
AROUND ONE INCH OF RAIN, 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 ONE TO TWO INCHES WILL BE POSSIBLE
IN LOCATIONS WHICH RECEIVE REPEATED RAINFALL COVERAGE. 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 THROUGH AROUND 330 PM.

IF HEADED TO THE BEACH. WHEN YOU ARRIVE, CHECK WITH THE BEACH
PATROL FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT TODAYS 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 A FEW LIGHTNING STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO
MOVE ACROSS THE ATLANTIC WATERS AND POINTS WELL INLAND. WIND
GUSTS UP TO 35 KNOTS AND LOCALLY HIGHER WAVES ON AREA LAKES, THE
INTRACOASTAL AND NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC WATERS. THE HAZARD AREA WILL
BE HIGHEST FROM BREVARD COUNTY SOUTH ACROSS THE TREASURE COAST AND
POINTS INLAND.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
THE COMBINATION OF WIND CHOP AND SWELL COULD CAUSE SEAS TO BUILD
AS HIGH AS 6 FEET WELL OFFSHORE AFTER MIDNIGHT, RESULTING IN POOR
CONDITIONS FOR OPERATORS OF SMALL CRAFT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
TROPICAL DEPRESSION NINE, LOCATED WEST OF THE FLORIDA STRAITS, IS
FORECAST TO MOVE WEST-NORTHWEST OVER THE SOUTHEAST GULF OF MEXICO
THROUGH TONIGHT AND INTENSIFY INTO A TROPICAL STORM. THE SYSTEM
WILL THEN TURN NORTHWEST AND NORTHWARD BY TUESDAY NIGHT, 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 WIDESPREAD TUESDAY, WITH THE
THREAT OF LOCALIZED FLOODING FROM THE SEVERAL ROUNDS OF STORMS
THAT ARE EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. THERE ALSO EXISTS A
RISK FOR INCREASINGLY GUSTY WINDS AND 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...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY.
