THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
High atmospheric moisture will lead to another round of scattered
to numerous lightning storms this afternoon and early evening.
Storms will continue to form near the east coast into the mid
afternoon, then coverage will increase inland through the late
afternoon. The highest storm coverage is expected from Lake
Okeechobee and the Treasure coast reaching northwest near the
Kissimmee River, the metro Orlando area and into Lake County.
Storms will be more scattered to the north and east of this area.
A few strong storms containing wind gusts up to 50 mph, small hail,
frequent to excessive lightning strikes, and very heavy rain are
expected late this afternoon.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Locally heavy rainfall accumulating up to 2 to 3 inches will
cause temporary flooding of some roads and low lying areas. The
greatest threat for localized flooding will be from the Orlando
metro area southward to Lake Okeechobee and in areas that have
seen multiple rounds of heavy rain over the past several days.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Scattered to numerous lightning storms are expected to impact the
intracoastal waters and inland lakes this afternoon. Gusty winds
of 35-40 knots and frequent lightning strikes are the main hazards.
Boaters are reminded that sudden changes in wind speed and direction
can occur well ahead of the heaviest rain from a thunderstorm.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A small east swell will generate a moderate rip current threat
along the beaches of east central Florida. Always swim within
sight of a lifeguard.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
Scattered to numerous lightning storms are expected each afternoon.
The primary threats will be dangerous cloud to ground lightning
and gusty winds. Slow moving storms will also produce very heavy
rains resulting in temporary flooding of some roads and poor
drainage areas.

An east swell will produce a moderate risk of rip currents at
the beaches.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotters are requested to monitor the weather and self activate
if needed. In addition, please report any rainfall amounts greater
than 3 inches to the National Weather Service.
