THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SUFFICIENT MOISTURE AND STEADY ONSHORE WINDS WILL LEAD TO ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS. THE GREATEST THREAT FROM STORMS WILL BE OCCASIONAL
CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING AND WIND GUSTS NEAR 40 MPH. STORM
MOTION WILL BE TOWARD THE WEST AROUND 15 MPH.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A FEW GUSTS APPROACHING 35 KNOTS WILL BE POSSIBLE IN AND NEAR ANY
STORMS WHICH DEVELOP OVER THE ATLANTIC WATERS AS WELL AS INLAND
LAKES AND THE INTRACOASTAL WATERS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
STEADY ONSHORE WINDS AND A BUILDING NORTHEAST SWELL WILL PRODUCE A
MODERATE RISK FOR RIP CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. BEFORE
ENTERING THE WATER, CHECK WITH BEACH PATROL FOR THE LATEST SURF
HAZARDS AND NEVER SWIM ALONE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
A TROPICAL WAVE CURRENTLY LOCATED OVER THE SOUTHEAST BAHAMAS WILL
MOVE TOWARD THE FLORIDA STRAITS AND EASTERN GULF OF MEXICO OVER
THE WEEKEND. DEEP MOISTURE IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE DISTURBANCE IS
EXPECTED TO SPREAD OVER THE AREA THIS WEEKEND AND EARLY NEXT
WEEK...INCREASING THE POTENTIAL FOR ABOVE NORMAL RAIN AND STORM
COVERAGE. LOCALLY HEAVY DOWNPOURS, OCCASIONAL TO FREQUENT
LIGHTNING STRIKES, AND BRIEF WIND GUSTS WILL BE THE MAIN HAZARDS
FROM STORMS.

RESIDENTS AND VISITORS SHOULD CONTINUE TO FOLLOW THE PROGRESS OF
THIS SYSTEM. LISTEN FOR FURTHER UPDATES VIA HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOKS
AND SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICE IN
MELBOURNE.

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