THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SUFFICIENT MOISTURE AND STEADY ONSHORE WINDS WILL LEAD A CHANCE FOR
THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE COAST... MAINLY SOUTH OF CAPE CANAVERAL
TODAY. LATE AFTERNOON HEATING WILL SUPPORT SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS INLAND. THE GREATEST THREAT FROM STORMS WILL
BE OCCASIONAL CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING, WIND GUSTS NEAR 35 MPH, AND
BRIEF HEAVY DOWNPOURS. STORM MOTION WILL BE TOWARD THE WEST AROUND
15 MPH.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A FEW GUSTS APPROACHING 35 KNOTS WILL BE POSSIBLE IN AND NEAR ANY
STORM THAT DEVELOPS OVER THE ATLANTIC WATERS AS WELL AS INLAND LAKES
AND THE INTRACOASTAL WATERS.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
EAST WINDS AROUND 15 KNOTS AND SEAS 5 TO 6 FEET WILL LEAD TO POOR
BOATING CONDITIONS OVER THE OPEN ATLANTIC WATERS NORTH OF
SEBASTIAN INLET.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
BREEZY ONSHORE WINDS AND AN EASTERLY SWELL WILL LEAD TO CHOPPY
SURF CONDITIONS AND A MODERATE RISK FOR RIP CURRENTS ALONG THE
BEACHES OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. IF HEADED TO THE BEACH, CHECK
WITH LOCAL BEACH PATROL FOR THE LATEST SURF RELATED HAZARDS AND
ONLY SWIM WITHIN SIGHT OF A LIFEGUARD.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
A WEAK TROPICAL DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE THROUGH THE FLORIDA STRAITS
AND INTO THE EASTERN GULF OF MEXICO THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK. DEEP
MOISTURE IN ASSOCIATION WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL SPREAD OVER THE AREA
BEGINNING SUNDAY...INCREASING SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE
THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK. LOCALLY HEAVY DOWNPOURS, OCCASIONAL TO
FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES, AND BRIEF GUSTY WINDS WILL BE THE MAIN
HAZARDS FROM STORMS.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
