THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL PULL A RELATIVELY STABLE AIRMASS INTO CENTRAL
FLORIDA THAT WILL LIMIT OVERALL STORM ACTIVITY TODAY. THE EAST
COAST SEA BREEZE WILL DEVELOP EARLY AND PUSH INTO THE INTERIOR
BEFORE STORMS BEGIN TO FORM...WHILE STORM COVERAGE OVER THE
INTERIOR WILL BE ISOLATED. EVEN SO...CLOUD-TO-GROUND LIGHTNING
WILL BE A THREAT IN ANY STORM THAT DEVELOPS...ALONG WITH STRONG
WIND GUSTS AROUND 40 MPH. REMEMBER...LIGHTNING CAN STRIKE WELL
BEYOND THE AUDIBLE RANGE OF THUNDER. CEASE OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES AND
MOVE INDOORS IMMEDIATELY IF THUNDER IS HEARD.

.EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACT...
SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO WARM RAPIDLY UNDER
UNDER MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES THROUGH MIDDAY. HIGH SURFACE HUMIDITY
WILL ADD TO THE EFFECTS OF THE WARM TEMPERATURES...ALLOWING THE
HEAT INDEX TOP 100 ACROSS MOST OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA BY EARLY
AFTERNOON. HIGHEST READINGS WILL REACH 105 TO 107 OVER THE
INTERIOR. IF OUTDOORS...BE SURE TO STAY HYDRATED AND TAKE
FREQUENT BREAKS FROM PHYSICAL ACTIVITY TO PREVENT HEAT RELATED
ILLNESS OR INJURY.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
SCATTERED SLOW MOVING THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP ALONG THE EAST
COAST SEA BREEZE AROUND MIDDAY THEN WILL SHIFT INLAND DURING THE
AFTERNOON. AS THESE STORMS PASS OVER THE INTERIOR LAKES...THEY
WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCAL WIND GUSTS AROUND 40 MPH AS
WELL AS DANGEROUS LIGHTNING. REMEMBER THAT STRONG WINDS AND
LIGHTNING OFTEN OCCUR AHEAD OF RAIN AREAS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
LOWER MOISTURE IS EXPECTED FOR MUCH OF THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK.
WHILE THERE WILL BE ISOLATED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS EACH
DAY...THE COVERAGE IS FORECAST TO BE WELL BELOW AVERAGE...
ESPECIALLY NEAR THE EAST COAST. MOISTURE WILL SLOWLY INCREASE INTO
THE WEEKEND, WHICH WILL LEAD TO AN INCREASE IN THUNDERSTORM
ACTIVITY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY.
