THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
MOIST ONSHORE WIND FLOW AND INSTABILITY WILL LEAD TO ISOLATED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS BY EARLY AFTERNOON...PRIMARILY INLAND
LATE THIS MORNING AND INTO AFTERNOON. STORM MOTION WILL BE TOWARD
THE WEST TO SOUTHWEST AT AROUND 15 TO 20 MPH. THE GREATEST THREAT
FROM STORMS WILL BE OCCASIONAL CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING AND WIND
GUSTS NEAR 30 MPH.

THUNDERSTORMS TO FORM OVER THE ATLANTIC TONIGHT...WITH SOME
ACTIVITY SPREADING ONSHORE COASTAL LOCATIONS DURING THE EVENING
AND OVERNIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
OCEAN CONDITIONS AND TIDES WILL RESULT IN A MODERATE HAZARD OF
RIP CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. CHECK WITH LIFE GUARDS
CONCERNING LOCAL SURF CONDITIONS...AND NEVER SWIM ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A FEW GUSTS APPROACHING 30 KNOTS WILL BE POSSIBLE IN AND NEAR ANY

LAKES AND THE INTRACOASTAL WATERS.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
INCREASING WINDS WILL BRING SEA HEIGHTS APPROACHING 6 FEET IN AND
NEAR THE GULF STREAM BY THIS AFTERNOON.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF MOIST ONSHORE FLOW WILL CONTINUE INTO EARLY
NEXT WEEK. THE COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE NEAR
NORMAL FOR LATE AUGUST MID WEEK...WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR ABOVE
NORMAL RAIN AND STORM COVERAGE BY LATE WEEK AND OVER THE WEEKEND.
LOCALLY HEAVY DOWNPOURS... OCCASIONAL TO FREQUENT LIGHTNING
STRIKES...AND GUSTY DOWNBURST WINDS WILL BE THE MAIN HAZARDS IN
ANY STRONGER STORMS.

THE TROPICAL DISTURBANCE CURRENTLY SEVERAL HUNDRED MILES EAST-SOUTHEAST
OF THE LEEWARD ISLANDS IS FORECAST TO MOVE TOWARD THE SOUTHEASTERN
AND CENTRAL BAHAMAS THIS WEEKEND...WITH SOME STRENGTHENING POSSIBLE.
