A FAIRLY MOIST AIRMASS REMAINS IN PLACE ACROSS CENTRAL

FROM AROUND MELBOURNE SOUTHWARD. THE COVERAGE OF THE STORMS WILL
INCREASE DURING THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON WITH SLOW AND ERRATIC

DURING THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON. FREQUENT CLOUD TO GROUND

THUNDER...YOU ARE CLOSE ENOUGH TO BE STRUCK. MOVE TO A SAFE INDOOR
LOCATION AND STAY OFF LAND-LINE TELEPHONES AND REMAIN AWAY FROM
DEVICES WHICH ARE PLUGGED INTO ELECTRICAL OUTLETS.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
A FEW STRONG STORMS SHOULD BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING 2 OR 3 INCH

CONSIDERABLE WATER PONDING ON ROADWAYS...ESPECIALLY WITHIN
LOCATIONS THAT HAVE RECEIVED HEAVY RAIN DURING RECENT DAYS. NEVER
DRIVE THROUGH WATER OF UNKNOWN DEPTH.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
LINGERING LONG PERIOD EAST SWELLS OF AROUND 3 FEET WILL PROMOTE A
MODERATE RISK OF STRONG AND DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS AT AREA
BEACHES. CHECK WITH LIFEGUARDS ABOUT LOCAL CONDITIONS BEFORE
ENTERING THE SURF AND DO NOT SWIM ALONE OR AT UNGUARDED BEACHES.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR WIND GUSTS 30 TO 35 KNOTS WILL EXIST THIS
AFTERNOON AND EVENING WITH STORMS THAT FORM OVER LAND AND MOVE
ACROSS INLAND BODIES OF WATER. STORM MOTION WILL BE SLOW AND
ERRATIC.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
ISOLATED TO SCATTERED AFTERNOON AND EVENING THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED THROUGH MUCH OF THE UPCOMING WEEK...HOWEVER AN
APPROACHING FRONT FOR LATE THURSDAY IS FORECAST TO BRING SOME
DRIER AIR FOR MUCH OF THE COVERAGE WARNING AREA ON FRIDAY. AN
INCREASING MOISTURE TREND WILL BEGIN AGAIN OVER THE WEEKEND. AN
ELEVATED RIP CURRENT THREAT WILL CONTINUE ACROSS EAST CENTRAL
BEACHES THROUGH AT LEAST MID WEEK.
