THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A strong north to south flowing longshore current will pose a
hazard to those entering the surf today. Rough surf will develop
at the beaches into this afternoon. In addition, a lingering long
period ocean swell will combine with a high astronomical tide to
generate a moderate rip current threat along area beaches. The
threat will be highest through 5:00 PM due to tidal effects.
Remember to always swim within sight of a lifeguard.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Northerly winds of 15 to 20 knots will prevail over the waters of
the open Atlantic waters today. Winds will shift to the northeast
this afternoon, then to the east tonight. Hazardous seas up to 7
to 8 feet are expected across the gulf stream waters. Small craft
advisories are in effect for the offshore waters. Small craft
should exercise caution over the nearshore waters.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
Breezy east to southeast winds across the Atlantic will keep seas
and the rip current risk elevated into early next week. Another
front will bring a scattered showers on Thursday and a slight
chance for lightning storms. Marine conditions will then become
hazardous again behind the front to end the week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed today.
