THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A BRIEF INFLUX OF DRY AIR WILL LOWER THE COVERAGE OF THUNDERSTORMS
TODAY ACROSS MUCH OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS
WILL DEVELOP ALONG THE SEA BREEZE WEST OF INTERSTATE 95 DURING
THE EARLY TO MID AFTERNOON. ACTIVITY WILL GRADUALLY SHIFT FARTHER
INLAND DURING THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON...WITH THE BEST CHANCE FOR
STORMS ACROSS OKEECHOBEE COUNTY AND THE WESTERN PORTIONS OF ST.
LUCIE AND MARTIN COUNTIES. LATE AFTERNOON AND EVENING STORMS ARE
EXPECTED ACROSS LAKE COUNTY. STORM MOTION TODAY WILL BE SLOW
TOWARD THE WEST OR NORTHWEST.

THE STRONGEST STORMS WILL OCCUR FAR INLAND...WITH THE MAIN
THREATS BEING FREQUENT CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING...GUSTY WINDS OF
40 TO 50 MPH AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
WITH THE SLOW MOTION OF STORMS TODAY...A FEW SPOTS...MAINLY WEST
OF A LINE FROM LAKE GEORGE TO LAKE OKEECHOBEE MAY EXPERIENCE ONE
TO THREE INCHES OF RAIN IN LESS THAN AN HOUR. TEMPORARY PONDING OF
WATER ON ROADWAYS AND WITHIN POOR DRAINAGE AREAS MAY OCCUR.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A MODERATE RIP CURRENT RISK WILL EXIST AT AREA BEACHES AGAIN TODAY.
THE GREATEST THREAT WILL EXIST THROUGH THE AFTERNOON HOURS DUE TO
TIDAL IMPACTS. IF PLANNING TO ENTER THE SURF...FIRST CHECK WITH
LIFEGUARDS ABOUT THE LOCAL CONDITIONS.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
SCATTERED SLOW MOVING STORMS WILL SHIFT INLAND DURING THE
AFTERNOON AND WILL MOVE ACROSS SOME LAKES WITHIN THE CENTRAL
FLORIDA INTERIOR...PRODUCING LOCALLY GUSTY WINDS OVER 40 MPH.
REMEMBER THAT STRONG AND GUSTY WINDS OFTEN OCCUR AHEAD OF RAIN
AREAS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
DEEP TROPICAL MOISTURE WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION MONDAY ON
SOUTHEASTERLY WINDS. THE COVERAGE OF THUNDERSTORMS IS FORECAST TO
BE HIGHER THAN THAT OF RECENT WEEKS...WITH A GOOD CHANCE OF RAIN
FOR MANY COASTAL AS WELL AS INLAND COMMUNITIES. HOWEVER...A
RETURN TO LOWER MOISTURE LEVELS IS THEN EXPECTED FOR MUCH OF THE
REMAINDER OF THE WEEK. WHILE THERE WILL BE SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS
EACH DAY...THE COVERAGE IS FORECAST TO BE BELOW NORMAL...ESPECIALLY
NEAR THE EAST COAST.

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