THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
MOIST ONSHORE WIND FLOW AND SUFFICIENT INSTABILITY WILL LEAD TO
ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS BY EARLY AFTERNOON...PRIMARILY
INLAND AND SOUTH OF THE SPACE COAST. STORM MOTION WILL BE TOWARD
THE WEST TO SOUTHWEST AT 15 TO 20 MPH. THE GREATEST THREAT FROM
STORMS WILL BE OCCASIONAL CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING AND WIND GUSTS
NEAR 30 MPH.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
OCEAN CONDITIONS AND TIDES WILL RESULT IN A MODERATE HAZARD OF
RIP CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES AGAIN TODAY. CHECK WITH LIFE GUARDS
CONCERNING LOCAL SURF CONDITIONS...AND NEVER SWIM ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A FEW GUSTS APPROACHING 30 KNOTS WILL BE POSSIBLE IN AND NEAR ANY
STORMS WHICH DEVELOP OVER THE ATLANTIC WATERS AS WELL AS INLAND
LAKES AND THE INTRACOASTAL WATERS MOSTLY SOUTH OF SEBASTIAN
INLET.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
WINDS AROUND 15 KNOTS AND SEAS 5 TO 6 FEET WILL BE POSSIBLE NEAR

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR ABOVE NORMAL RAIN AND STORM COVERAGE BY
LATE WEEK AND OVER THE WEEKEND. LOCALLY HEAVY DOWNPOURS,
OCCASIONAL TO FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES, AND GUSTY DOWNBURST
WINDS WILL BE THE MAIN HAZARDS IN ANY STRONGER STORMS.

THE TROPICAL DISTURBANCE CURRENTLY LOCATED NORTH OF HISPANOLA
WILL MOVE MOVE TOWARD THE SOUTHEASTERN BAHAMAS EARLY FRIDAY, INTO
THE CENTRAL AND NORTHERN BAHAMAS SATURDAY, AND MOVING TOWARD SOUTH
FLORIDA LATE THIS WEEKEND.

THIS SYSTEM IS GIVEN A HIGH CHANCE OF STRENGTHENING INTO A TROPICAL
CYCLONE BY THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER.

WHILE IT IS STILL TOO EARLY TO SPECULATE WHETHER THIS SYSTEM WILL
ULTIMATELY HAVE ANY SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS ON EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA, THERE
WILL LIKELY BE AT LEAST SOME INCREASE IN RAIN AND STORM CHANCES BY
THIS WEEKEND AS THE SYSTEM MAKES ITS CLOSEST APPROACH TO THE AREA.

RESIDENTS AND VISITORS ARE URGED TO FOLLOW THE PROGRESS OF THIS
SYSTEM. LISTEN FOR FURTHER UPDATES VIA HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOKS
AND SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICE IN
MELBOURNE.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY.
