This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for West Central And Southwest

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Some patchy fog will reduce visibilities to a mile or less in some
locations early this morning. Motorists are urged to slow down and
use low beam headlights, and leave plenty of distance between you
and the vehicle in front of you if encountering fog. The fog
should burn off shortly after sunrise with improving conditions

A cold front will move south through the region today. In the
wake of the front north winds will increase to around 20 knots
with building seas over the adjacent Gulf waters tonight into
early Monday. The increasing winds and seas will support hazardous
boating conditions for small craft operators and a small craft
advisory will be in effect from 8 PM EST tonight through early
Monday morning for much of the near and offshore Gulf waters.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday.

A storm system is expected to develop over the central Gulf of
Mexico on Tuesday and will move slowly toward and across West
Central and Southwest Florida Wednesday through Friday, bringing
with it increasing chances for rain and some isolated
thunderstorms. Thunderstorms that do develop will be capable of
producing locally heavy rain, gusty winds, and occasional
lightning strikes. Pleasant dry weather will return to the area on
Saturday as high pressure builds in over the region.


Spotter activation will not be needed today.
