THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
LONG PERIOD EAST SWELLS WILL CONTRIBUTE TO A HIGH RISK OF RIP
CURRENTS AT EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA BEACHES TODAY. THE STRONGEST
SEAWARD PULL FROM RIP CURRENTS WILL BE AROUND THE TIME OF LOW TIDE
FROM THE LATE MORNING INTO EARLY AFTERNOON. REMEMBER TO SWIM NEAR
A LIFEGUARD.

IF YOU BECOME CAUGHT IN A RIP CURRENT...NEVER ATTEMPT TO SWIM
DIRECTLY AGAINST IT...AS YOU WILL TIRE QUICKLY. INSTEAD...TREAD
WATER AND THEN SWIM AT AN ANGLE AWAY FROM THE CURRENT. THEN ONCE
OUT OF THE CURRENT...SWIM DIRECTLY BACK TOWARD THE BEACH.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A FEW LIGHTNING STORMS MAY DEVELOP ACROSS INTERIOR PORTIONS OF
EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA IN THE MID TO LATE AFTERNOON AFTERNOON BEFORE
MOVING WEST OF THE KISSIMMEE RIVER BASIN AND LAKE COUNTY LATER
TODAY.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
INCREASINGLY DRY VEGETATION OVER MUCH OF THE AREA AND EASTERLY
WINDS TO 10 TO 15 MPH WILL RESULT IN A MODERATE FIRE WEATHER
DANGER.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
ONSHORE WINDS AND EAST SWELLS WILL KEEP BEACH CONDITIONS HAZARDOUS
WITH DANGEROUS SURF AND STRONG RIP CURRENTS THROUGH SUNDAY.

IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE GOING TO THE BEACH THIS WEEKEND...MAKE SURE
THEY UNDERSTAND OCEAN DANGERS AND HOW TO ESCAPE A RIP CURRENT.
THE BEST SAFETY ADVICE IS TO ONLY ENTER THE SURF NEAR A LIFEGUARD.

THE CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND LIGHTNING STORMS IS EXPECTED MAINLY
ACROSS INLAND AREAS EACH AFTERNOON THROUGH MONDAY AS THE EAST
COAST SEA BREEZE MOVES TOWARD THE INTERIOR EACH AFTERNOON. AS
DEEPER MOISTURE INCREASES INTO MID TO LATE WEEK SCATTERED TO
NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND LIGHTNING STORMS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS ALL OF
EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. SHOWERS AND STORMS MAY PRODUCE LOCALLY HEAVY
RAIN AND GUSTY WINDS FOR THE MIDDLE TO LATTER PART OF NEXT WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY.
