.NOW...
EASTERLY LOW LEVEL WINDS WILL PUSH ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS TO
INTERIOR SECTIONS OF THE PENINSULA...WITH MOST ACTIVITY SHIFTING INTO
WESTERN SECTIONS BY LATE AFTERNOON. THERE IS A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR
LIGHTNING STORMS MAINLY FROM NEAR THE KISSIMMEE RIVER BASIN INTO LAKE
COUNTY. WITH MOIST LOW LEVELS AND WEAKER WINDS THAN THE PAST SEVERAL
DAYS...AN ISOLATED FUNNEL CLOUD IS ALSO POSSIBLE INTO EARLY
AFTERNOON...THOUGH WITH THE RELATIVELY WEAK CONVECTION...WE WOULD NOT
ANTICIPATE ANY TOUCHDOWNS TO OCCUR.

THE MAIN HAZARD WILL CONTINUE TO BE RIP CURRENTS. THE SURF ZONE WILL
LOOK MORE INVITING THAN PREVIOUS DAYS DUE TO LESS WIND CHOP ON THE
OCEAN. HOWEVER A 9 TO 10 SECOND SWELL AROUND 3 FEET WILL CONTINUE TO
GENERATE DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS. LOW TIDE IS AROUND NOON...AND THE
GREATEST SEAWARD PULL OF RIP CURRENTS SHOULD OCCUR 3 HOURS EITHER
SIDE OF LOW TIDE.

CROWDS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO BE AS GREAT AS LAST WEEKEND...WHEN
LIFEGUARDS HAD TO SAVE HUNDREDS OF OCEAN BATHERS. BUT RIP CURRENTS
SHOULD BE JUST AS STRONG.

IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE GOING TO THE BEACH...MAKE SURE THEY ARE AWARE OF
OCEAN HAZARDS...ESPECIALLY RIP CURRENTS. SWIM ONLY NEAR A LIFEGUARD
AND HEED THEIR ADVICE. NEVER SWIM ALONE IN THE OCEAN.
