DEVELOP ACROSS WEST CENTRAL FLORIDA AND PUSH EAST TO SOUTHEAST
AROUND 10 TO 15 MPH ACROSS THE REGION INTO THE AFTERNOON. BEST RAIN

NORTHERN BREVARD COUNTY WHERE GREATEST MOISTURE EXISTS. A FEW STRONG
STORMS ARE POSSIBLE LATER IN THE DAY WITH ANY CONVECTION THAT

INITIAL LONG PERIOD SWELLS FROM DISTANT HURRICANE EDOUARD ARE
FORECAST TO REACH OUR COASTAL WATERS AND SURF ZONE LATE THIS

IN THE AFTERNOON...MAINLY NORTH OF SEBASTIAN INLET.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE TOMORROW AS A WEAK
FRONTAL BOUNDARY MOVES SOUTH INTO CENTRAL FLORIDA AND MAINTAINS
DEEP MOISTURE OVER THE REGION.

LARGER LONG PERIOD SWELLS FROM DISTANT HURRICANE EDOUARD OVER THE
