THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Weather and oceanic swell conditions will lead to a High Risk for
life threatening rip currents at the east central Florida beaches,
today. The threat for rips will be especially high between 100 PM
and sunset, due to tidal effects. Always remember to swim within
sight of a lifeguard, and never swim alone.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
Weather conditions and continued dry vegetation will lead to a
High Danger of potential wildfire spread this afternoon. Any
unattended fires are likely to escape. Outdoor burning is
prohibited in most east central Florida counties.

.DENSE FOG/SMOKE IMPACT...
Smoke from smoldering fires may combined with some shallow mist
to produce significant visibility reductions on some roads once
again late overnight. Motorists should continue to check road
conditions for potential closures and be prepared for sudden drops
in visibility. Highways most likely to be affected include State
Road 50 in eastern Orange and northwestern Brevard counties as
well as State Road 44 in Volusia County.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
An elevated threat of rip currents will continue this weekend. The
potential for wildfire spread will also remain high. Isolated to
scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms are forecast next
week ahead of an approaching frontal boundary. Slowly increasing
winds and building seas will result in deteriorating boating
conditions through early next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed today.
