THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Weather and ocean conditions will lead to a moderate risk for rip
currents, and a stronger than normal northward flowing longshore
current in the surf zone at the central Florida Atlantic beaches
today. The threat for rips will be greatest between 300 PM and
sunset, due to tidal effects.

If heading to the beach, check with the local beach patrol for
additional information about ocean hazards, and always heed the
advice of lifeguards. Remember to swim only within sight of a
lifeguard, and never swim alone.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Southeast winds near 20 knots will produce choppy short period
seas to around 6 feet, resulting in poor to hazardous boating
conditions, especially well offshore south of Cape Canaveral.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
Continued dry vegetation combined will lead to a High Fire Danger,
with the potential for wildfire spread during the late morning and
afternoon. Any unattended fires are likely to escape, and outdoor
burning is prohibited in most east central Florida counties.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
The potential for wildfire spread will remain high early this week
as gusts southeast to south winds continue.

The chance of lightning storms will increase this week with the
approach of a low pressure trough on Tuesday, and a cool front
Thursday night into Friday.

Conditions will remain poor to hazardous for operation of small
craft through Monday night.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed today.
