THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A small, long period background swell will combine with a strong
astronomical tide to generate a moderate rip current threat along
area beaches today. The threat will be highest between noon and
6:30 PM due to tidal effects. Beach goers should check local
conditions and swim within site of a life guard. Never enter the
ocean alone.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
Despite the beneficial rain most areas received earlier this week,
much of east central Florida remains in a severe to extreme
drought with average rainfall well below average since January of
this year. Furthermore, much drier air will has pushed into
central Florida behind Thursday`s frontal passage. Long durations
of low relative humidity are expected, especially over the I-4
Corridor, which will aid in the spread of any new or existing
wild fires.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
Dry air will slowly modify into early next week, but will continue
to enhance the wild fire threat at least through Sunday. Residents
are urged to check with local authorities regarding any burn bans
that could impact outdoor activities for the upcoming Memorial
Day weekend. In addition, weather and ocean conditions will
produce a moderate rip current threat at the beaches the holiday
weekend. Thunderstorms return to the forecast by Tuesday of next
week.

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