...TROPICAL STORM ERIKA TO POSSIBLY BRING FLOODING RAINS TO OUR
AREA NEXT WEEK...

...ELEVATED RISK OF RIP CURRENTS DURING THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS AT
AREA BEACHES...

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST FLORIDA...
SOUTHEAST GEORGIA AND THE ADJACENT COASTAL WATERS.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT...

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED
THROUGH SUNSET...PARTICULARLY AT INLAND LOCATIONS. A FEW STRONG
THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE...WITH GUSTY WINDS OF 30-50
MPH AND FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES BEING THE PRIMARY THREATS
THROUGH EARLY EVENING. SLOW MOVING THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE CAPABLE
OF PRODUCING LOCALIZED FLOODING. SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP OVER THE COASTAL WATERS THIS
EVENING...WITH SCATTERED ACTIVITY POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT IN THE
COASTAL COUNTIES.

ONSHORE WINDS AND BUILDING SEAS WILL CREATE A MODERATE RISK OF RIP
CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY...

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED
THROUGH THE PERIOD. THE FORECAST TRACK AND STRENGTH OF TROPICAL
STORM ERIKA IS STILL VERY UNCERTAIN INTO NEXT WEEK. INCREASING
WINDS AND SEAS ARE EXPECTED IN THE COASTAL WATERS ALONG WITH AN
ELEVATED THREAT OF RIP CURRENTS ALONG THE COAST. SMALL CRAFT
ADVISORIES MAY BE REQUIRED ON THE COASTAL WATERS BY LATE SUNDAY
THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK.

THE EXPECTED SLOW MOVEMENT OF ERIKA OR ITS REMNANTS NEAR OR OVER
THE FLORIDA PENINSULA NEXT WEEK MAY PRODUCE WIDESPREAD HEAVY RAINS
OVER MUCH OF OUR AREA. THERE IS THE THREAT FOR MAJOR FLOODING
ALONG FAST RISING RIVERS AND TRIBUTARIES SUCH AS BLACK CREEK AND
THE UPPER SANTA FE RIVER.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTERS ARE ASKED TO SELF-ACTIVATE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING IF
WARNINGS ARE ISSUED.
