THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN MELBOURNE HAS ISSUED A

  THE FOLLOWING AREAS...COASTAL VOLUSIA...INLAND VOLUSIA...
  NORTHERN BREVARD...NORTHERN LAKE...ORANGE...OSCEOLA...
  SEMINOLE...SOUTHERN BREVARD AND SOUTHERN LAKE.

* THROUGH NOON WEDNESDAY

* DEEP SOUTHERLY MOISTURE AND A SLOWLY APPROACHING COLD FRONT
  MOVING SOUTHEASTWARD TOWARD EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA WILL ALLOW
  SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP AND TRAIN OVER THE SAME
  AREAS THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT. SHOWERS AND STORMS ARE
  EXPECTED TO PRODUCE HEAVY RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF TWO TO FOUR
  ADDITIONAL INCHES WITH SOME AREAS ALONG THE I-4 CORRIDOR SEEING
  HIGHER AMOUNTS WHERE STORMS MOVE OVER THE SAME AREAS. THE THREAT
  FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE EARLY ON
  WEDNESDAY AS THE FRONTAL BOUNDARY SLOWLY DROPS THROUGH CENTRAL
  FLORIDA.

* ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAINFALL WOULD BRING POTENTIAL FLOODING TO
  ROADWAYS...AND LOW-LYING AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS. AREAS THAT
  HAVE RECEIVED HEAVY RAINFALL OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS WILL BE
  ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE TO FLOODING SHOULD HEAVY RAIN DEVELOP IN
  YOUR AREA. SMALLER CREEKS AND RIVERS MAY SEE RAPID RISES OF
  WATER WITH CONTINUED HEAVY RAINFALL LEADING TO THE POTENTIAL
  FOR FLOODING.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A FLOOD WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING BASED ON
CURRENT FORECASTS.

YOU SHOULD MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND BE ALERT FOR POSSIBLE
FLOOD WARNINGS. THOSE LIVING IN AREAS PRONE TO FLOODING SHOULD BE
PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION SHOULD FLOODING DEVELOP.
