This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for West Central And Southwest

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Scattered thunderstorms will develop today, mainly during the mid
to late afternoon hours and will linger into the evening. Gusty
winds and occasional lightning will be possible with any storms
that develop.

Flooding continues along the Withlacoochee River at Holder and
Dunnellon. This flooding is forecast to continue through at least
the end of the upcoming week. Should any heavy rainfall occur,
flooding may worsen or be prolonged.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.

A weak front will move into the Florida Peninsula Tuesday and
stall out through the week. Abundant moisture ahead of the front,
and weak frontal lift will continue to promote afternoon showers
and thunderstorms through Wednesday. Rain chances will decrease
during the second half of the week as drier air moves into the

Strong high pressure will build in north of the waters in the wake
of a cold front set to stall across the northern Gulf of Mexico. A
tightening pressure gradient between the high to the north, and
weak low pressure over south Florida, will result in strong
easterly winds. Nocturnal easterly wind surges will likely result
in cautionary to borderlined advisory level winds and seas for
several nights beginning as early as early Tuesday morning and
lasting through late week.

The Withlacoochee River at Holder and Dunnellon will remain in
flood stage through the next seven days.


Spotter activation will not be needed today.
