.NOW...THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON...A SMALL EASTERLY SWELL COMBINED WITH
THE FULL MOON WILL PROMOTE A MODERATE THREAT FOR STRONG RIP CURRENTS
AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. THE THREAT WILL BE HIGHEST FROM LATE THIS
MORNING THROUGH MID TO LATE AFTERNOON.

AMPLE MOISTURE...SURFACE HEATING AND BOUNDARY INTERACTIONS WILL LEAD
TO SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS STRONG STORM CHANCES THIS AFTERNOON AND
EARLY EVENING. LOCAL MODELS SUGGEST THAT ACTIVITY MAY GET ITS START
EARLY THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS SOUTHERN SECTIONS OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA
WHERE STEERING FLOW WILL BE STRONGEST. LATER...SLOW MOVING STORMS ARE
FORECAST TO DEVELOP NORTHWARD AND MOVE TOWARD THE EAST COAST. THREATS
WILL INCLUDE LOCALLY HEAVY DOWNPOURS...FREQUENT LIGHTNING AND WIND
GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 50 MPH IN STRONGER CELLS.

STORM CELLS MAY MOVE OFF OF THE EAST COAST LATER IN THE DAY AND POSE
A THREAT TO MARINERS ACROSS THE INTRACOASTAL AND NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC
WATERS. MARINERS WILL NEED TO KEEP AN EYE TO THE SKY WESTWARD THROUGH
THE DAY.
