THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY IS FORECAST TO STALL ACROSS NORTH FLORIDA
TODAY. A MOIST SOUTHWEST FLOW AHEAD OF THIS FRONT WILL TRANSPORT
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS FROM THE INTERIOR, ACROSS THE EAST
COAST AND OFFSHORE INTO THE ATLANTIC. THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE IS
EXPECTED TO DEVELOP EARLIER TODAY AND PUSH FARTHER INLAND,
PROVIDING A FOCUS AND A BOOST FOR STORMS. INSTABILITY ALOFT WILL
PRODUCE SOME STRONG STORMS ESPECIALLY AS A RESULT OF BOUNDARY
COLLISIONS. THE PRIMARY THREAT FROM STORMS WILL BE FREQUENT CLOUD TO
GROUND LIGHTNING. AN ISOLATED SEVERE STORM OR TWO PRODUCING DAMAGING
WINDS NEAR 60 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE. A BRIEF ISOLATED TORNADO CANNOT
BE RULED OUT LATE IN THE DAY NEAR THE EAST COAST FROM INSTABILITY
AND STRONG BOUNDARY INTERACTIONS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A LINGERING EAST SWELL WILL CONTRIBUTE TO A MODERATE RISK OF RIP
CURRENTS AT EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA BEACHES TODAY. CHECK WITH
LIFEGUARDS ABOUT LOCAL CONDITIONS BEFORE ENTERING THE SURF AND
DO NOT SWIM ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP AND MOVE EASTWARD, IN FROM THE
GULF COAST AND INTERIOR SECTIONS, CROSSING THE INTRACOASTAL WATERS
AND ONTO THE ATLANTIC LATER IN THE DAY. STORMS WILL HAVE THE
POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE WIND GUSTS OF 35 TO 45 KNOTS AND FREQUENT
LIGHTNING STRIKES.

.WATERSPOUT IMPACT...
MARINE INTERESTS SHOULD ALSO BE ALERT FOR THE POTENTIAL OF
WATERSPOUTS LATE TODAY AND EARLY THIS EVENING.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
SCATTERED AFTERNOON AND EVENING THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS
THE REGION THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK. A FEW STRONGER STORMS WILL BE
POSSIBLE EACH DAY. AN EAST SWELL IS FORECAST INTO THE UPCOMING
WEEKEND WHICH WILL KEEP THE RIP CURRENT RISK MODERATE.

HURRICANE MATTHEW IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN THE CENTRAL CARIBBEAN
AND IS FORECAST TO MOVE GENERALLY WESTWARD THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING
THEN TURN NORTHWARD TOWARD EASTERN CUBA. MODEL GUIDANCE SUGGESTS THE
HURRICANE WILL LIFT NORTH ACROSS THE BAHAMAS SOMETIME NEXT WEEK. AT
A MINIMUM, THIS WOULD RESULT IN BREEZY CONDITIONS ESPECIALLY AT THE
COAST WITH BUILDING SEAS, SURF AND DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS AT THE
BEACHES. BEYOND THAT, IT IS TOO EARLY TO SPECULATE ON SPECIFIC
IMPACTS TO EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA OR THEIR TIMING. CLIMATOLOGICALLY,
WE REMAIN IN THE HEART OF THE ATLANTIC HURRICANE SEASON.

RESIDENTS AND VISITORS TO EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA ARE ENCOURAGED
TO MONITOR THE LATEST TRACK AND INTENSITY FORECASTS ON HURRICANE
MATTHEW FROM THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER.

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