THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A WEAK SURFACE TROUGH WILL SAG SOUTH ACROSS THE CENTRAL PENINSULA
TODAY. AHEAD OF THIS BOUNDARY MOIST AIR WILL COMBINE WITH LOCAL
SEA AND LAKE BREEZES TO PRODUCE SCATTERED AFTERNOON AND EARLY
EVENING SHOWERS AND LIGHTNING STORMS. THE BEST CHANCE FOR STORMS
TODAY WILL BE SOUTH OF A LINE FROM KISSIMMEE TO MELBOURNE. STORM
MOTION TODAY WILL BE TOWARD THE SOUTHEAST AT SPEEDS RANGING FROM 5
TO 10 MPH.

SOME OF TODAY`S STORMS COULD BECOME STRONG TO SEVERE..RESULTING
IN WIND DAMAGE FROM 50 TO 60 MPH WIND GUSTS...LARGE HAIL...
FREQUENT TO EXCESSIVE LIGHTNING...AND TORRENTIAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS
OF 1 TO 3 INCHES IN A 60 TO MINUTE TIME FRAME. SEEK SHELTER IF
YOU HEAR THUNDER...OR IF SKIES LOOK THREATENING.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL LEAD TO A MODERATE RISK OF RIP
CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES THIS AFTERNOON BETWEEN 2 PM AND SUNSET.
ASK THE BEACH PATROL FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT OCEAN
HAZARDS. TO DECREASE YOUR CHANCE OF BEING CAUGHT IN A RIP CURRENT
SWIM ONLY WITHIN SIGHT OF A LIFEGUARD...AND NEVER SWIM ALONE. HEED
THE ADVICE OF THE BEACH PATROL.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
MARINERS ON INLAND LAKES THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING SHOULD BE ON
THE LOOKOUT FOR ISOLATED STRONG STORMS...ESPECIALLY SOUTHWARD FROM
KISSIMMEE TO LAKE OKEECHOBEE AND THE TREASURE COAST. MOVEMENT WILL
BE TOWARD THE SOUTHEAST AT 5 TO 10 KNOTS. WIND GUSTS ABOVE 35
KNOTS...SMALL HAIL AND FREQUENT LIGHTNING WILL BE POSSIBLE.

LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY THIS EVENING A FEW STORMS MAY
VENTURE ACROSS THE INTRACOASTAL AND NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC WATERS
FROM SEBASTIAN INLET TO JUPITER INLET. MARINERS SHOULD KEEP AN EYE
TO THE WEST FOR APPROACHING STORMS. WIND GUSTS ABOVE 35
KNOTS...SMALL HAIL AND FREQUENT LIGHTNING WILL BE THE MAIN
THREATS.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
INCREASINGLY DRY VEGETATION COUPLED WITH LOW AFTERNOON RELATIVE
HUMIDITIES IN THE 40S OVER THE INTERIOR AND THE POTENTIAL FOR
SCATTERED AFTERNOON LIGHTNING STORMS SOUTH OF KISSIMMEE WILL
RESULT IN A MODERATE FIRE DANGER ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA THIS
AFTERNOON.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
WHILE SCATTERED SHOWERS ARE IN THE FORECAST THIS WEEKEND...THE
CHANCE FOR ISOLATED STORMS WILL DECREASE DUE TO STRENGTHENING
ONSHORE FLOW KEEPING AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPERATURES A LITTLE
COOLER...WHILE ALSO PRODUCING A WEAKER AND FASTER MOVING EAST
COAST SEA BREEZE. RAIN CHANCES WILL DECREASE FURTHER EARLY NEXT
WEEK.

DETERIORATING BOATING CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED THIS WEEKEND...
ESPECIALLY OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...AS A STRONG HIGH PRESSURE
RIDGE BUILDING NORTH OF FLORIDA INCREASES ONSHORE WINDS AND BUILDS
SEAS.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR WEATHER CONDITIONS AND SELF
ACTIVATE IF ANY WARNINGS ARE ISSUED FOR THEIR COUNTIES.
