THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Increasing moisture ahead of an approaching weather disturbance
will continue to result in widespread rain with embedded
thunderstorms across the Treasure Coast and development of
scattered showers and a few thunderstorms across areas farther
northern this afternoon and evening. Showers and storms will move
north at 5 to 10 mph, then will move more northeast or east later
today. Locally heavy downpours, occasional lightning, and brief
gusty winds will be the main threats.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Heavy rainfall earlier this morning produced an area of 3 to
nearly 6 inches across the Nettles Island, Jensen Beach and Hobe
Sound region. Additional rain of around one inch will be possible
across the Treasure coast through evening. Farther north, the
coverage of showers will be less, but quick heavy downpours will
be possible at times.

.DENSE FOG/SMOKE IMPACT...
Late tonight into early Monday, localized dense smoke from
smoldering fires may affect visibility on some roads once again.
Motorists should continue to check road conditions for potential
closures, and especially if traveling on State Roads 528, 520, and
407 in eastern Orange and northern Brevard counties, State Roads
44 and 46 in northeast Lake County, and Interstate 4 near Orange
City in southwest Volusia County.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...

threatening rip currents at the east central Florida beaches,
especially through mid afternoon. Always remember to swim within
sight of a lifeguard, and never swim alone.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Isolated lightning storms will be capable of producing wind gusts
up to 35 knots across inland lakes and the adjacent coastal
waters.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Southeast winds are forecast to increase to 15 to 20 knots well
offshore late this afternoon into this evening. Seas will build
this evening and overnight up to 6 feet well offshore. Small craft
should exercise caution late today and tonight well away from the
coast.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
Weather conditions and vegetation dryness due to the ongoing drought
will lead to a moderate to high danger of wildfire spread again
today, mainly north of the Treasure Coast. Any unattended fires
are likely to escape. Outdoor burning may be prohibited in your
area.

Isolated lightning storm activity will be capable of igniting new
fires across east central Florida today.
