THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR WEST CENTRAL AND SOUTHWEST
FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
ABUNDANT MOISTURE COMBINED WITH DAYTIME HEATING WILL ALLOW SCATTERED
TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP ACROSS THE REGION
TODAY...ALONG THE SEA BREEZE MAINLY DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY
EVENING HOURS. STORMS THAT DEVELOP TODAY WILL MOVE SLOWLY INLAND
WITH THE GREATEST AREAL COVERAGE AND INTENSITY OF STORMS EXPECTED
ALONG AND TO THE EAST OF I 75 CORRIDOR DURING MID TO LATE AFTERNOON.
SLOW MOVING STORMS WILL SUPPORT LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS WHICH MAY PRODUCE
MINOR FLOODING OF LOW LYING AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS AS WELL AS THE
PONDING OF WATER ON ROADWAYS. IN ADDITION TO THE RAIN STRONG GUSTY
WINDS...FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES AND SOME SMALL HAIL WILL ACCOMPANY
THE STORMS. REMEMBER IF YOU OBSERVE LIGHTNING OR HEAR THUNDER...MOVE
INDOORS IMMEDIATELY.

...FLOOD IMPACT...
A WEAK STEERING FLOW WILL SUPPORT SLOW MOVING THUNDERSTORMS TODAY
AND ANY STORM WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO PRODUCE VERY HEAVY RAINFALL
AMOUNTS OVER A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. THE HEAVY RAINS WILL CAUSE
MINOR FLOODING OF LOW LYING AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS...AS WELL AS
THE PONDING OF WATER ON ROADWAYS...SO MOTORISTS ARE URGED TO
EXERCISE CAUTION TODAY IF ENCOUNTERING HEAVY RAIN.



.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS CAN BE EXPECTED DAILY. A
SOUTHWEST STEERING FLOW WILL FAVOR ISOLATED STORMS ALONG COASTAL
LOCATIONS DURING THE LATE NIGHT AND EARLY MORNING HOURS...BECOMING
SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS IN COVERAGE AS THEY MOVE INLAND EACH AFTERNOON.
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING STRONG GUSTY WINDS...
LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS...FREQUENT DEADLY LIGHTNING STRIKES AND SMALL
HAIL.


...FLOOD IMPACT...
SLOW MOVING STORMS WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL
AMOUNTS IN SOME LOCATIONS EACH DAY. THE HEAVY RAINFALL MAY PRODUCE
