THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR WEST CENTRAL AND SOUTHWEST
FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP LATE THIS MORNING
INTO THE EARLY AFTERNOON HOURS ACROSS CENTRAL AND EASTERN
FLORIDA...AND SHIFT WESTWARD BECOMING MORE NUMEROUS DURING THE
DAY. THE GREATER CHANCES FOR STORMS WILL BE ALONG AND SOUTH OF THE
INTERSTATE 4 CORRIDOR. HEAVY RAIN...GUSTY WINDS...AND FREQUENT
LIGHTNING WILL ACCOMPANY ANY STRONGER STORMS THAT OCCUR. STORMS
SHOULD GRADUALLY WEAKEN TONIGHT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

...TROPICAL IMPACT...
A TROPICAL LOW CONTINUES TO STIR NEAR CUBA THIS MORNING. THE
SYSTEM REMAINS VERY UNORGANIZED...AND ANY FURTHER STRENGTHENING
SHOULD BE SLOW OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS THE SYSTEM MOVES
TOWARD THE FLORIDA KEYS. CONDITIONS WILL BECOME MORE CONDUCIVE TO
DEVELOPMENT AS THE LOW NEARS THE GULF OF MEXICO LATE THIS WEEKEND
OR EARLY NEXT WEEK. WHILE MANY QUESTIONS REMAIN IN TERMS OF
POTENTIAL STRENGTH...MODELS ARE IN GENERAL AGREEMENT IN BRINGING
THE DISTURBANCE NORTHWESTWARD...WITH INCREASING CHANCES FOR
THUNDERSTORMS AND HEAVY RAIN SATURDAY NIGHT INTO
SUNDAY...ESPECIALLY ACROSS SOUTHERN FLORIDA AND THE FLORIDA KEYS.
ALL INTERESTS ALONG THE GULF COAST FROM TEXAS TO FLORIDA SHOULD
CLOSELY MONITOR THIS SYSTEM AS IT MEANDERS INTO THE GULF EARLY
NEXT WEEK...WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR STRENGTHENING.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY.
