THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
MOIST SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST FLOW WILL RESULT IN SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS
FAST MOVING SHOWERS AND ISOLATED LIGHTNING STORMS INTO TONIGHT.
THE ACTIVITY WILL MOVE NORTH OR NORTHEAST AT AROUND 20 TO 25 MPH,
AND WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING DEADLY CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING
STRIKES, BRIEF PASSING HEAVY DOWNPOURS, AND WIND GUSTS AS HIGH AS
30 TO 40 MPH. HEAD INDOORS IF SKIES LOOK THREATENING, OR YOU HEAR
THUNDER.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
LOCALIZED HEAVY RAIN AMOUNTS OF ONE TO TWO INCHES WILL BE POSSIBLE
DUE TO THE TRAINING OF HEAVY SHOWERS AND ISOLATED LIGHTNING STORMS.
THIS CAN LEAD TO STANDING WATER IN LOW SPOTS AND ON ROADWAYS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
THE COMBINATION OF OCEAN SWELL AND LOCAL TIDES WILL RESULT IN A
HIGH RISK FOR DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS AT THE CENTRAL FLORIDA
ATLANTIC COAST BEACHES.

IF HEADED TO THE BEACH, CHECK WITH THE BEACH PATROL FOR ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION ABOUT TODAY`S OCEAN HAZARDS. TO LESSEN YOUR CHANCES
OF BECOMING CAUGHT IN A RIP CURRENT, ALWAYS SWIM WITHIN SIGHT OF A
LIFEGUARD AND NEVER SWIM ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
FAST MOVING SHOWERS AND EMBEDDED LIGHTNING STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO
MOVE ACROSS THE ATLANTIC WATERS AND POINTS WELL INLAND. WIND GUSTS
UP TO 35 KNOTS WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH LOCALLY HIGHER WAVES ON AREA
LAKES, THE INTRACOASTAL WATER WAYS, AND NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC WATERS.

.WATERSPOUT IMPACT...
MARINE INTERESTS SHOULD ALSO BE ALERT FOR THE POTENTIAL OF
WATERSPOUTS TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDS BETWEEN 15 TO 20 KNOTS WILL COMBINE WITH
SEAS UP TO 6 FEET AND PRODUCE POOR BOATING CONDITIONS OVER THE
OFFSHORE WATERS OF VOLUSIA AND BREVARD COUNTIES.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
TROPICAL STORM HERMINE, LOCATED OVER THE SOUTH-CENTRAL GULF, IS
FORECAST TO MOVE NORTH AND INTENSIFY THIS AFTERNOON. THE SYSTEM WILL
THEN MOVE NORTHEASTWARD LATER TODAY INTO THURSDAY MORNING, AND THEN
MOVE ACROSS NORTHERN FLORIDA BY THURSDAY NIGHT.

VERY MOIST AIR ON THE EASTERN SIDE OF THE SYSTEM WILL BRING SHOWERS
AND STORMS WITH VERY HEAVY RAINFALL THROUGH THURSDAY, WITH THE
THREAT OF LOCALIZED FLOODING FROM THE SEVERAL ROUNDS OF SHOWERS
AND STORMS THAT ARE EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS. THERE ALSO
EXISTS A RISK FOR INCREASINGLY GUSTY WINDS AND ISOLATED TORNADOES
AS THE CENTER OF THE SYSTEM APPROACHES FLORIDA, ESPECIALLY THURSDAY
AND THURSDAY NIGHT.

PERSONS IN CENTRAL FLORIDA SHOULD FOLLOW THE PROGRESS OF THE
DEVELOPING SYSTEM. LISTEN FOR UPDATED FORECASTS AND ADVISORIES
FROM THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER, AND FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE IN MELBOURNE.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE
IF NEEDED.
