THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
There will be a High Risk of rip currents along the beaches of
east central Florida today as long period northeast swells
continue to impact the coast. The threat will be highest between
11:30 AM this morning and 6:00 PM this afternoon due to tidal
effects.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
A long period swell generated by Tropical Storm Jose will
maintain 4 to 6 foot seas across the coastal waters with east to
northeast winds around 10 knots. Small craft operators should
exercise caution when venturing into the open Atlantic,
especially around inlets and in the Gulf Stream.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
Minor to moderate flooding along the Saint Johns River near Cocoa,
Geneva, Sanford, Deland and Astor are forecast to change little
through midweek. The Saint Johns River above Lake Harney near
Geneva is forecast to remain in major flood stage.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
Moderate swells generated by Jose will continue to diminish
through Thursday, but will produce marginal boating conditions
and a moderate to high rip current threat. Swells from Major
Hurricane Maria will increase by the upcoming weekend, leading to
very hazardous beach and boating conditions once again.

Somewhat elevated moisture levels are forecast into late week,
which will result in a low chance for lightning storms.

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