A frontal boundary moving slowly southward through central Florida
has generated an area of scattered showers and isolated lightning
storms over the Volusia and Brevard coastal waters.  This activity
was moving slowly to the south and southwest.  Some showers with
brief downpours are expected to affect the coast through late
afternoon.  An increase in coverage of the heavy downpours is
possible towards sunset.

Daytime heating may also generate scattered showers and a few
lightning storms, mainly inland of the Treasure Coast to Okeechobee
and southern Osceola counties.

Marine conditions will deteriorate with northeast winds picking up
to near 20 knots behind the front, from about Sebastian Inlet
northward today.  Rough surf and a high rip current risk are
expected from the Cape northward, while south of there to the
Treasure Coast the rip current risk is moderate.  Only enter the
ocean near a lifeguard.
