THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
RECENT OVERALL DRY CONDITIONS WILL BEGIN TO GIVE WAY TO A GRADUAL
RETURN TO MOISTURE SUFFICIENT TO SUPPORT ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS
AND STORMS. THE BEST CHANCE WILL BE CONCENTRATED OVER INLAND
SECTIONS ORIENTED NORTH-SOUTH ALONG THE MIDDLE OF THE CENTRAL
PENINSULA DURING THE LATER AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. THE
STEERING FLOW MAY ALLOW FOR SOME OF THE STORMS TO DRIFT BACK
TOWARD THE BREVARD AND VOLUSIA COUNTY COASTS LATER IN THE DAY. A
FEW SHOWERS NEAR COASTAL SECTIONS DURING THE MORNING AND EARLY
AFTERNOON.

THE MAIN STORM HAZARD IS LIGHTNING.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
SOUTHEAST WINDS AND SMALL BUT LONG PERIOD SWELLS WILL PRODUCE A
MODERATE RISK FOR RIP CURRENTS AT THE BEACHES OF EAST CENTRAL
FLORIDA. CHECK WITH BEACH PATROL FOR LOCAL CONDITIONS AND ONLY
SWIM IN THE OCEAN NEAR A LIFEGUARD.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS IMPACTING BOATERS ON
INLAND LAKES...ESPECIALLY WELL INLAND DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON
AND EARLY EVENING. A FEW STORMS MAY DRIFT BACK TOWARD THE COAST
LATE IN THE DAY WHILE DISSPIATING AS THEY MOVE OFFSHORE BETWEEN
SEBASTIAN INLET AND FLAGLER BEACH.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
MOISTURE IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE INCREASING AND BRING A GREATER
CHANCE FOR LIGHTNING STORMS TUESDAY AND ESPECIALLY WEDNESDAY.
STRONG STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE EACH DAY...AND PARTICULARLY
WEDNESDAY AS A COLD FRONT SWEEPS ACROSS THE AREA...CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING STRONG DOWNBURST WINDS...FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES AND
VERY HEAVY RAINFALL.

NOTICEABLY COOLER AND DRIER WEATHER IS FORECAST THE LATTER HALF
OF THE WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
