THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND LIGHTNING STORMS IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE
THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING ACROSS INTERIOR AREAS FROM
OSCEOLA COUNTY NORTHWARD AS THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE MOVES SLOWLY
INLAND. A FEW STRONG STORMS ARE POSSIBLE WITH CLOUD TO GROUND
LIGHTNING STRIKES...GUSTY WINDS TO 40 MPH AND LOCALLY HEAVY
RAINFALL.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
AN EAST SWELL WILL CONTRIBUTE TO A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS
AT EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA BEACHES TODAY. CHECK WITH LIFEGUARDS ABOUT
LOCAL CONDITIONS BEFORE ENTERING THE SURF AND DO NOT SWIM ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
THERE WILL BE RISK OF WIND GUSTS TO 35 TO 40 MPH ACROSS INTERIOR
AREAS FROM LATE AFTERNOON INTO EARLY EVENING WITH ANY STRONGER
STORMS THAT DEVELOP.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
MAJOR HURRICANE MATTHEW IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN THE CENTRAL
CARIBBEAN AND IS FORECAST TO MOVE SLOWLY WESTWARD THIS AFTERNOON THEN
TURN NORTHWARD ON SUNDAY AND APPROACH EASTERN CUBA TUESDAY MORNING.
MODEL GUIDANCE SUGGESTS THE HURRICANE WILL THEN LIFT NORTH ACROSS
THE BAHAMAS INTO MID TO LATE WEEK. AT A MINIMUM, THIS WOULD
RESULT IN BREEZY CONDITIONS ESPECIALLY AT THE COAST WITH BUILDING
SEAS, SURF AND DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS AT THE BEACHES FOR THE
LATTER PART OF THE WORK WEEK. SIGNIFICANT BEACH EROSION WILL BE
POSSIBLE AS WELL.

RESIDENTS AND VISITORS TO EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA ARE ENCOURAGED
TO MONITOR THE LATEST TRACK AND INTENSITY FORECASTS ON HURRICANE
MATTHEW FROM THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER.
