THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK FOR STRONG TO ISOLATED SEVERE STORMS
TODAY. TEMPERATURES WILL WARM INTO THE UPPER 80S TO LOWER 90S
AGAIN AHEAD OF A FRONT FORECAST TO ENCROACH UPON THE AREA FROM THE
NORTH EARLY WEDNESDAY. SO...FOR TODAY...THE WIND FLOW ACROSS
CENTRAL FLORIDA HAS SHIFTED TO THE SOUTHWEST WHICH WILL TEND TO
SLOW THE PROGRESS OF THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE. STORMS WILL
INCREASE INITIALLY FROM THE WESTERN COAST AND INCREASE IN NUMBER
AND INTENSITY AS THEY WORK THEIR WAY TOWARD THE EAST COAST.
BOUNDARY MERGERS ARE EXPECTED EAST OF ORLANDO WHERE STORMS MAY
BECOME QUITE STRONG LATER IN THE DAY. THE MERGERS WILL PROVIDE
ENHANCED LIFT AND AN OPPOSING SOUTHEASTERLY FLOW BEHIND THE SEA
BREEZE MAY EVEN ADD OPPORTUNITY FOR A FEW ROTATING UPDRAFTS AND
TURBULENT DOWNDRAFTS.

STRONG WIND GUSTS AND SMALL HAIL ARE POSSIBLE. THERE IS ALSO THE
POSSIBILITY OF AN ISOLATED BRIEF WATERSPOUT OR TORNADO.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
MERGING BOUNDARIES ARE EXPECTED OVER EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA...
ESPECIALLY EAST OF ORLANDO LATER IN THE AFTERNOON...AND WILL HAVE
THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE LOCAL STORM TOTALS OF 3 TO 4 INCHES.
URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORIES MAY BE NEEDED.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
THE SURF ZONE IS NOT AS CONDUCIVE FOR RIP CURRENTS TODAY AS IN
PREVIOUS DAYS. HOWEVER...A SMALL OCEAN SWELL WILL STILL BRING SOME
CONCERN DURING THE TIME OF OUTGOING TIDE.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
BUOYS OBSERVATIONS ARE INDICATING WINDS OF 15 TO 20 KNOTS IN THE
GULF STREAM AND OFFSHORE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
STORMS WILL FORM OVER INTERIOR SECTIONS THIS AFTERNOON AND TEND
TO FOCUS TOWARD THE EAST COAST AND THEN PUSH OFFSHORE. SOME STORMS
WILL BECOME STRONG DURING THE LATER AFTERNOON AND HAVE THE
POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE GUSTS TO 34 KNOTS AND ISOLATED WATERSPOUTS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
MOISTURE IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE INCREASING AND BRING A GREATER
CHANCE FOR LIGHTNING STORMS INTO WEDNESDAY. STRONG STORMS WILL BE
POSSIBLE AS A COLD FRONT SWEEPS ACROSS THE AREA...CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING STRONG DOWNBURST WINDS...FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES AND
LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL. NOTICEABLY COOLER AND DRIER WEATHER IS
FORECAST THE LATTER HALF OF THE WEEK AND INTO THE UPCOMING
WEEKEND.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE
IF NEEDED.
