This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for West Central And Southwest
Florida.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected this afternoon
and early evening...with the greatest coverage well inland.
Storms that form will be capable of producing strong gusty
winds...locally heavy rains...and frequent deadly lightning
strikes. Remember... if lightning is observed or thunder is heard
move indoors immediately.

...EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACT...
Temperatures will reach the lower and middle 90s which combined
with high humidity levels will result in heat indices in the 100
to 105 degree range during the afternoon...making it feel quite
uncomfortable outdoors. If you are going to be outdoors today
drink plenty of water and try to stay in the shade.

To reduce risk during outdoor work...The Occupational Safety and
Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke
is an emergency...Call 911.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Thunderstorms will slowly increase in coverage as deep moisture
moves over the area during the next few days. Storms will be
isolated to scattered along with numerous showers and generally
move from southwest to northeast. Some of these storms will be
capable of producing strong gusty winds...locally heavy rains...
and frequent deadly lightning strikes. Remember...if lightning is
observed or thunder is heard move indoors immediately.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today.
