THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
...SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE STORMS ALONG THE SPACE AND TREASURE
COASTS...
AN ENERGETIC DISTURBANCE MOVING ACROSS THE FLORIDA PENINSULA FROM
THE GULF WILL BRING WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND EMBEDDED STRONG
LIGHTING STORMS FROM MID MORNING INTO THE AFTERNOON. INCREASING
WINDS IN THE ATMOSPHERE ALONG WITH PRESENCE OF SURFACE BOUNDARIES
WILL ALLOW FOR SOME STORMS TO BECOME STRONG TO POSSIBLY SEVERE. A
HIGHER CHANCE OF DEVELOPMENT OF LOCALLY SEVERE STORMS WILL BE
ALONG THE EAST COAST FROM CAPE CANAVERAL SOUTHWARD ACROSS THE
SPACE AND TREASURE COASTS WHERE AN EAST COAST BREEZE BOUNDARY WILL
LIKELY BE PRESENT BY EARLY AFTERNOON. THE MAIN HAZARDS WILL BE
FREQUENT CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING...SMALL HAIL AND PERIODS OF
BLINDING RAIN. A BRIEF TORNADO OR WATER SPOUT WILL BE POSSIBLE IN
THE STRONGEST STORMS. STORMS WILL MOVE RAPIDLY EAST AT 25 TO 35
MPH.

PERSONS SHOULD CLOSELY MONITOR WEATHER REPORTS FOR THE
POSSIBILITY OF SEVERE WEATHER WATCHES AND OR LOCAL WARNINGS.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
STORMS PRODUCING PERIODS OF HEAVY RAIN WILL BE CAPABLE OF DUMPING
A QUICK ONE TO TWO INCHES IN SOME AREAS. NUISANCE FLOODING OF LOW
SPOTS WILL BE POSSIBLE WHERE THE STRONGEST STORMS MOVE ACROSS.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
THERE IS A MODERATE TO HIGH HAZARD OF WIND GUSTS EXCEEDING 34
KNOTS ACROSS INLAND LAKES AS WELL AS THE INTRACOASTAL AND
NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC WATERS AS STORMS MOVE RAPIDLY FROM THE
MAINLAND AND ACROSS THE ATLANTIC WATERS AT 20 TO 30 KNOTS. BE
PREPARED TO SEEK SAFE HARBOR IN ADVANCE OF STORMS.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
INCREASING WINDS OVER THE OPEN ATLANTIC WATERS WILL OCCUR DURING
TODAY AND INTO TONIGHT. A LATE SEASON COLD FRONT MOVING OVER THE
REGION LATE TODAY WILL BRING GUSTY WEST TO NORTHWEST WINDS OVER
THE ATLANTIC WATERS...ESPECIALLY OFFSHORE. SEAS WILL INCREASE TO
4 TO 6 FEET BY TONIGHT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
NOTICEABLY COOLER AND DRIER WEATHER IS FORECAST THE LATTER HALF
OF THE WEEK AND INTO THE UPCOMING WEEKEND. FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS
WILL REDEVELOP DUE TO PROLONGED DRYING WHICH WILL OCCUR BEGINNING
THURSDAY AND PERSIST INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
