THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL SWEEP ACROSS THE FLORIDA PENINSULA AGAIN
FROM THE WEST WITH ADDITIONAL LIGHTNING STORMS DEVELOPING IN THE
VERY MOIST AND UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE ACROSS CENTRAL FLORIDA.
COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL INCREASE ACROSS THE AREA
THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING WITH NUMEROUS BOUNDARY
COLLISIONS.

A FEW STRONGER STORMS THAT MAY PRODUCE FREQUENT LIGHTNING AND
WIND GUSTS UP TO 50 MPH...ESPECIALLY ALONG STORM OUTFLOWS AND
BOUNDARY COLLISIONS.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
PERSISTENT HEAVY SHOWERS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING RAIN
AMOUNTS OF 2 TO 3 INCHES. THIS MAY LEAD TO MINOR FLOODING OF LOW
LYING AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS...AS WELL AS CAUSING NUISANCE WATER
PONDING ON ROADWAYS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A SMALL EASTERLY SWELL ALONG WITH THE FULL MOON WILL LEAD TO A
MODERATE THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS NORTH OF CAPE CANAVERAL AND A LOW
THREAT ALONG THE BREVARD AND TREASURE COASTS. THE THREAT WILL BE
GREATEST DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING DUE TO TIDAL
EFFECTS. ALWAYS SWIM NEAR A LIFEGUARD AND NEVER SWIM ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
SCATTERED STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING STRONG WIND GUSTS
OVER 34 KNOTS. STORM MOTION WILL BE TO THE EAST OR NORTHEAST AT 15
TO 20 KNOTS. THERE IS A HIGH LIKELIHOOD OF COASTAL WIND GUSTS
EXCEEDING 35 MPH THIS AFTERNOON NORTH OF PORT CANAVERAL AS STORMS
MOVE OFFSHORE FROM THE MAINLAND. MARINERS SHOULD REMEMBER THAT
STRONG WINDS MAY ARRIVE WELL AHEAD OF RAIN AND LIGHTNING.

INLAND LAKES ARE NOT IMMUNE FROM THE EFFECTS OF STRONG STORMS AND
HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS CAN QUICKLY DEVELOP OVER LAKES WITH
GUSTY WINDS AND FREQUENT LIGHTNING. BE PREPARED TO SEEK SAFE
HARBOR WELL BEFORE A STORM APPROACHES YOUR AREA.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDS OF 15 TO 20 KNOTS OFFSHORE AND NORTH OF
SEBASTIAN INLET WILL PROMOTE POOR BOATING CONDITIONS FOR SMALL
CRAFT. SMALL CRAFT SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION HERE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
A MOIST SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WIND FLOW WILL KEEP THE COVERAGE OF
AFTERNOON STORMS GREATER THAN NORMAL SUNDAY AND EARLY NEXT WEEK. A
LOWER BUT MORE SEASONAL COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS RETURNS TO
THE FORECAST FROM MID WEEK INTO LAKE WORK WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE
IF NEEDED. NWS MELBOURNE RAINFALL OBSERVERS ARE REQUESTED TO
RELAY ANY RAINFALL MEASUREMENTS OF 3 INCHES OR GREATER TODAY TO
THE NWS.
