THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE IS FORMING ALONG THE COAST WHICH WILL
SPARK SCATTERED LIGHTNING STORMS ALONG THE I-95 CORRIDOR INTO THE
EARLY AFTERNOON. STORM COVERAGE WILL INCREASE INLAND MID TO LATE
AFTERNOON AS THE SEA BREEZE DRIFTS INLAND. THE HIGHEST STORM CHANCES
WILL OCCUR FROM I-4 WESTWARD WHERE OUTFLOW AND SEA BREEZE BOUNDARIES
COLLIDE LATE IN THE DAY. STORMS WILL MOVE NORTH NORTHWEST AROUND 10
MPH. SOME DRY AIR ALOFT WILL ENHANCE THE POTENTIAL FOR THE STORMS
THAT DO DEVELOP TO GENERATE STRONG DOWNBURST WINDS AND FREQUENT
LIGHTNING STRIKES.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
SLOW MOVING AFTERNOON STORMS WILL GENERATE LOCAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS
BETWEEN 2 AND 3 INCHES WHICH WILL CAUSE MINOR FLOODING ON ROADS
AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS. LOCATIONS THAT HAVE RECEIVED HEAVY RAIN
OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS WILL BE MORE VULNERABLE TO FLOODING ISSUES.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A SMALL BACKGROUND SWELL WILL COMBINE WITH A HIGH ASTRONOMICAL
TIDE TO PRODUCE A MODERATE THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS ALONG THE EAST
CENTRAL FLORIDA COAST. THE THREAT WILL BE HIGHEST BETWEEN NOON AND
630 PM DUE TO TIDAL CONDITIONS. CHECK WITH OCEAN RESCUE AND BEACH
PATROL FOR LATEST SURF CONDITIONS AND ALWAYS SWIM NEAR A LIFEGUARD.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
SCATTERED STORMS THIS AFTERNOON WILL MOVE NORTH TO NORTHWEST AROUND
10 MPH AND HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE WINDS OVER 40 KNOTS. A
FEW STORMS WILL INITIALLY DEVELOP ALONG THE I-95 CORRIDOR BY EARLY
AFTERNOON. THIS MAY BRING SOME OUTFLOW WINDS AND LIGHTNING
CONCERNS NEAR THE COAST. STORMS WILL DRIFT INLAND AND INCREASE OVER
THE INTERIOR THROUGH LATE AFTERNOON...POSING A THREAT FOR FREQUENT
LIGHTNING STRIKES AND STRONG WIND GUSTS OVER THE INLAND LAKES.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
WINDS WILL SHIFT TO THE SOUTHWEST THROUGH MIDWEEK AS A HIGH
PRESSURE RIDGE BUILDS OVER SOUTH FLORIDA. THIS WILL LEAD TO AN
INCREASE IN AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY...ESPECIALLY OVER THE
COASTAL COUNTIES. FREQUENT LIGHTNING...STRONG WIND GUSTS...AND
VERY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE THE PRIMARY CONCERNS.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE
IF NEEDED.
