THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
AN INCREASINGLY LONG PERIOD SWELL AND TIDAL EFFECTS WILL PRODUCE A
HIGH RISK FOR RIP CURRENTS ALONG THE BEACHES OF EAST CENTRAL
FLORIDA. THE THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS WILL BE IN PLACE ALL DAY,
HOWEVER, IT WILL BE HIGHEST BETWEEN 900 AM AND 300 PM DUE TO TIDAL
EFFECTS. HEED THE ADVICE OF LIFEGUARDS...BEACH PATROL FLAGS AND
SIGNS IF HEADED TO THE BEACH TODAY.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
ENHANCED MOISTURE AND STEADY ONSHORE WINDS WILL LEAD TO ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. A FEW LIGHTNING STORMS
OVER THE ATLANTIC COULD MOVE ONSHORE ALONG THE COAST THROUGH MID
MORNING, BEFORE ADDITIONAL THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOP OVER THE
INTERIOR BEGINNING LATE THIS MORNING AND INTO THE AFTERNOON.
OCCASIONAL LIGHTNING STRIKES, WIND GUSTS UP TO 40 MPH, AND BRIEF
HEAVY DOWNPOURS WILL ACCOMPANY ANY STORM THAT DEVELOPS.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
BRIEF WIND GUSTS APPROACHING 35 KNOTS WILL BE POSSIBLE IN AND
NEAR ANY STORM THAT DEVELOPS OVER THE ATLANTIC WATERS AS WELL AS
INLAND LAKES AND THE INTRACOASTAL WATERS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
A WEAK AREA OF LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE THROUGH THE FLORIDA STRAITS
AND INTO THE EASTERN GULF OF MEXICO THROUGH EARLY NEXT WEEK. THERE
IS A MEDIUM CHANCE OF THIS SYSTEM HAVING TROPICAL DEVELOPMENT
WITHIN THE NEXT 48 HOURS. REGARDLESS OF DEVELOPMENT, DEEP MOISTURE
IN ASSOCIATION WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL SPREAD OVER THE AREA,
INCREASING SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE THROUGH THE UPCOMING
WORK WEEK. LOCALLY HEAVY DOWNPOURS, OCCASIONAL TO FREQUENT
LIGHTNING STRIKES, AND BRIEF GUSTY WINDS WILL BE THE MAIN HAZARDS
FROM STORMS.

RESIDENTS AND VISITORS SHOULD CONTINUE TO CLOSELY MONITOR THE
