THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Much deeper moisture spreads across east central Florida overnight
along with inverted troughing near the east coast. Scattered showers
and isolated lightning storms are expected over the coastal waters.
Some of this shower activity will move onto the coast and a bit
further inland with deepening easterly flow. The primary threat will
be occasional lightning strikes over the coastal waters near the
coast and locally heavy rain.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Small craft should exercise caution over the Gulf Stream north of
Sebastian Inlet where lingering swells produce seas up to 6 feet.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
Although the eye of Major Hurricane Maria is forecast to remain
about 500 miles offshore the Florida Atlantic coast this weekend,
large swells are expected to affect the coastal waters and surf
zone beginning Saturday and continuing into early next week.
Conditions for small craft operation will become hazardous.

Beachgoers can expect a High Surf Advisory to be issued over the
weekend. The high surf expected from Maria will aggravate moderate
to severe erosion which has already occurred at some beaches. In
addition to large breaking waves, there will be a High Risk of rip
currents that will extend well into next week.

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