THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Numerous showers will continue along the Florida east coast behind a
cold front which has stalled over central Florida after sagging into
the region earlier today.

Bands of showers with locally heavy downpours moving repeatedly over
the same areas near the coast could produce localized flooding or
ponding of water, especially in Volusia and Brevard Counties, where
standing water and high water table concerns continue.

Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches are possible overnight
with 3 to 5 inch totals possible in some spots. The ground in many
areas remains saturated so any rainfall will likely turn to runoff
and ponding very quickly. Additional rain could also further
aggravate flooding along the Saint Johns River if any prolonged
heavy rain works its way inland.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Hazardous boating conditions north of Sebastian Inlet from the coast
out to 60 nautical miles will spread southward to Jupiter Inlet late
tonight as increasing northeast winds cause seas to build further.
Expect winds as high as 20 to 25 knots with seas 5 to 7 feet near
shore and up to 8 to 10 feet offshore by late tonight.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The middle and upper Saint Johns River basin remains in flood with
only a slight decrease in river levels forecast over the next
several days.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
Scattered to numerous showers with isolated lightning storms are
forecast across East Central Florida for Wednesday. Locally heavy
rain may occur at times, especially along the coast. Improving
conditions are then forecast for later in the week.

Boating conditions will be poor to hazardous much of the remainder
of this week due to increased winds and seas. Also, at the beaches
the surf may become rough at times. A moderate risk of rip
currents will be recurring.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Please report any rainfall amounts of 2 inches or greater to the
National Weather Service Office in Melbourne.
