THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A LONG PERIOD NORTHEAST SWELL WILL PRODUCE A MODERATE RISK OF RIP
CURRENTS AT THE BEACHES OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. ALWAYS SWIM
WITHIN SIGHT OF A LIFEGUARD.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
BOATING CONDITIONS WILL BEGIN TO DETERIORATE THIS EVENING OVER THE
GULF STREAM AS SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDS INCREASE 15 TO 20 KNOTS.
THEN WIND SPEEDS SHOULD INCREASE NEAR 20 KNOTS AND EXPAND ACROSS
MOST OF THE WATERS LATE TONIGHT AND EARLY SUNDAY. A SMALL CRAFT
ADVISORY WILL GO INTO EFFECT BEFORE SUNRISE SUNDAY.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
CONDITIONS APPEAR FAVORABLE FOR A SQUALL LINE TO DEVELOP AHEAD OF
A STRONG COLD FRONT ON SUNDAY MORNING EXTENDING FROM THE FLORIDA
PANHANDLE SOUTHWEST INTO THE GULF OF MEXICO. VERY STRONG WIND
FIELDS WILL COMBINE WITH INSTABILITY AND SHEAR TO PRODUCE A THREAT
OF DAMAGING WINDS AND HAIL ASSOCIATED WITH THE SQUALL LINE AS IT
CROSSES CENTRAL FLORIDA SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND SUNDAY NIGHT.
ISOLATED TORNADOES WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE PRIMARILY IN ANY STORMS
THAT DEVELOP AHEAD OF THE SQUALL LINE. WIDESPREAD RAINFALL AMOUNTS
AROUND ONE HALF INCH ARE EXPECTED WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS UP
TO 2 INCHES POSSIBLE.

VERY HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS WILL DEVELOP SUNDAY AFTERNOON
AND SUNDAY NIGHT AS STRONG SOUTHWEST WINDS INCREASE 20 TO 30
KNOTS WITH FREQUENT GUSTS TO GALE FORCE. STRONG WEST WINDS BEHIND
THE FRONT MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT WILL KEEP BOATING CONDITIONS
HAZARDOUS. SEAS WILL PEAK NEAR 10 FEET WELL OFFSHORE SUNDAY NIGHT
THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT.

STAY TUNED TO LOCAL MEDIA OUTLETS AND NOAA WEATHER RADIO FOR
FURTHER UPDATES ON THIS DEVELOPING WEATHER SITUATION. NOW WOULD
BE A GOOD TIME TO CHECK THAT YOUR NOAA WEATHER RADIO IS IN GOOD
WORKING ORDER.
