.NOW...

TROPICAL DEPRESSION NUMBER 2 WAS LOCATED 175 MILES NORTHEAST OF CAPE
CANAVERAL EARLY THIS AFTERNOON AND HEADED TOWARD THE SOUTH CAROLINA
COAST. WHILE DIRECT IMPACTS FROM THIS SYSTEM ARE NOT EXPECTED IN
EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA...LONG PERIOD OCEAN SWELLS PROPAGATING INTO THE
SURF ZONE ARE PRODUCING A HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS AT THE BEACHES.
THE THREAT WILL BE GREATEST LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY THIS
EVENING WHEN MOST LIFEGUARDS WILL BE GOING OFF DUTY.

ISOLATED SHOWERS WILL DEVELOP ALONG THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE AS IT
PUSHES INLAND ACROSS THE COASTAL COUNTIES AND THEN INTO THE INTERIOR
COUNTIES.  MOST BEACHSIDE COMMUNITIES WILL REMAIN DRY. THE BEST
CHANCE FOR LIGHTNING STORMS WILL BE OVER THE INTERIOR...ALONG THE
KISSIMMEE RIVER BASIN...INCLUDING WESTERN ORANGE...LAKE...OSCEOLA AND
OKEECHOBEE COUNTIES EARLY THIS EVENING. THE PRIMARY THREATS FROM
STORMS WILL BE FREQUENT CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING AND GUSTY
DOWNBURST WINDS.
