This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for West Central And Southwest
Florida.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

...RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A cold front will move south through the region Today. In the
wake of the front an increasing west to northwest wind flow along
with building seas can be expected over the adjacent Gulf waters
during this afternoon and tonight. The increasing winds and
elevated waves will increase the risk of dangerous rip currents
along area beaches today through early Wednesday. If you plan to
visit the beach heed the advice of the beach patrol.

...MARINE IMPACTS...
A cold front will move south through the region Today. As the
front moves through west to northwest winds are expected to
increase into the 20 to 25 knot range with a few higher gusts
along with building seas over the adjacent Gulf waters. These
increasing winds and seas will produce rough boating conditions
for small craft operators through early Wednesday and a small
craft advisory is in effect for all of the near and offshore
Gulf waters as well as the Tampa Bay and Charlotte Harbor waters
through early Wednesday.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.
Another cold front will moves south the region on Friday.
Sufficient moisture return ahead of the front will bring
increasing rain chances to the region late Thursday night through
Friday evening as the front moves through the area. An increasing
northwest to northerly wind flow in the wake of the front will
bring another period of hazardous boating conditions for small
craft operating on the Gulf waters during Friday night through
early Saturday. Lighter winds and lower seas will return to the
Gulf waters on Sunday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today.
