THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Local winds will be onshore today bolstered by an embedded sea
breeze. Showers and lightning storms will initiate over the
coastal counties during the late morning and early afternoon,
then increase in number and intensity as they move progressively
inland. The best chance for strong storms will be west and
northwest of Orlando as the east coast sea breeze collides with
the west coast sea breeze there. Primary hazards will be
cloud-to-ground lightning and locally heavy rain today. However,
wind gusts to 40 mph cannot be ruled out.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Slow moving lightning storms will be capable of producing locally
heavy rainfall with peak totals of one to two inches in spots,
mainly late in the afternoon west and northwest of Orlando.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A modest east swell will support a moderate risk of rip
currents at East Central Florida beaches, mainly during
times of the outgoing tide. Always swim within sight of a
lifeguard.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Scattered lightning storms are expected to develop near the
coast along the sea breeze and push farther inland while
increasing in coverage. As such, inland lakes will be most
at risk to strong thunderstorm gusts and mainly during the
mid to late afternoon.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
Scattered lightning storms are forecast to continue across the
Fourth of July holiday weekend and into early next week. The
primary threats will be dangerous lightning strikes, gusty winds,
and locally heavy rain. While the highest chances for afternoon
thunderstorms is expected across inland areas, coastal locations
will also see a threat of lightning activity each day.

A moderate risk of rip currents will continue.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed today, however spotters are
asked to report rainfall amounts of greater than 3 inches or
observed flooding.
