THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.EXCESSIVE COLD IMPACT...
A strong, Arctic cold front will sweep through central Florida
this afternoon. Behind the front, another surge of very cold air
will spill across east central Florida on gusty northwest to north
winds, which will increase to around 15 MPH through tonight.

Low temperatures in the upper 20s are expected across northern
Lake and Volusia Counties, and in the lower 30s from around the
Interstate 4 corridor southward over the interior to near Lake
Okeechobee. A Freeze Watch is in effect for this area.

In addition, the combination of cold temperatures and the gusty
northwest to north winds will result in wind chill readings in
the 20s across most of the region, except for the immediate
Treasure Coast and barrier islands. A Wind Chill Advisory is in
effect for all of east central Florida tonight.

If you will be outside from this evening through sunrise, be sure
to dress appropriately for the cold weather, including a hat and
gloves. Listen for possible Freeze Warnings that may be issued
later today.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Northwest to northwest winds of around 15 knots will increase to
20 to 25 knots by late tonight, with seas of 4 to 6 feet this
morning building to 6 to 8 feet near shore and up to 10 feet well
offshore, especially over the Gulf Stream. Small Craft Should
Exercise Caution this morning and early this afternoon. By late
afternoon, a Small Craft Advisory will go into effect through
tonight.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Weather and ocean conditions will produce a moderate risk of Rip
Currents within the chilly surf of the central Florida Atlantic
beaches today. The threat will be highest from 11 AM through 5 PM
due to tidal effects. Check with beach patrol for the latest
information about ocean hazards. Always swim within sight of a
lifeguard, and never swim alone.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
the cold temperatures will linger through Thursday and Thursday
night, before a gradual warmup begins late in the week. Hazardous
boating conditions will be slow to subside beginning Thursday
evening, and remain poor offshore through early Friday morning.


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