THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A continuing east swell will keep a moderate risk for life-
threatening rip currents at area beaches, especially in the
afternoon due to tidal effects. A longshore current will also
exist at the beaches today. This current flows parallel to the
beach and can be strong enough to knock you off the sandbar into
deep water. Check with ocean rescue personnel about surf hazards
when arriving at the beach, and only swim near a lifeguard.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Southeast winds of 15 to 20 knots with choppy, short wave periods
have prompted a Small Craft Advisory over the near shore waters
south of Sebatian Inlet and the offshore waters from Brevard County
southward. Small craft should exercise caution over the remainder
of the east central Florida coastal waters.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
Increasing southeast winds into mid week will build wind waves
across the Atlantic. Small craft may need to exercise caution at
times, especially across the offshore waters beyond 20 nautical
miles. Persistent onshore wind flow through the upcoming week and
a residual ocean swell will elevate the rip current risk at east
central Florida beaches.

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