THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Weather and ocean conditions will lead to a moderate risk for rip
currents, and a stronger than normal northward flowing longshore
current in the surf zone at the central Florida Atlantic beaches
today. The threat for rips will be especially high between 200 PM
and sunset, due to tidal effects.

If heading to the beach to escape the heat today, check with the
local beach patrol for additional information about ocean hazards,
and always heed the advice of lifeguards. Remember to swim only
within sight of a lifeguard, and never swim alone.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
Continued dry vegetation combined with gusty southeast winds will
lead to a High Danger of potential wildfire spread this afternoon.
Any unattended fires are likely to escape, and outdoor burning is
prohibited in most east central Florida counties.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Small craft should exercise caution in the Gulf Stream and
offshore Atlantic waters south of Sebastian Inlet this morning as
southeast winds of 15 to 20 knots cause seas to build to 5 feet.
Conditions will become poor for small craft operation farther
north over the Gulf Stream, and closer to shore south of Sebastian
Inlet as seas build further to as high as 6 feet.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
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. Conditions will
remain poor to hazardous for operation of small craft into early
next week.


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