THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.DENSE FOG/SMOKE IMPACT...
Smoke from a lightning induced wildfire near Rockledge yesterday
continues to burn and smolder this morning. Select roads in the
vicinity may be closed for the morning commute. Interstate 95 has
already been closed. The smoke will drift into parts of Rockledge
and Cocoa. Motorists are urged to use extra caution and be prepared
to stop. Detours may cause additional delays. Always use low beam
headlights in fog and smoke.

The smoke hazard will persist beyond sunrise into the mid-morning.
As the wildfire burns well into the day...mixing will help thin and
disperse the smoke.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A high coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms is expected
today, including over the Space and Treasure Coasts where
lightning storms have been more isolated recently. Initial
development of storms should occur along the sea breeze as it
moves inland from the coast early this afternoon. Coverage and
intensity of storms will increase elsewhere through the remainder
of the afternoon. The primary hazards will be cloud to ground
lightning, gusty winds, and heavy rainfall. Storm motion will be
generally toward the northeast around 10 mph but thunderstorms
that form as a result of boundary collisions will exhibit slow and
erratic movement.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Slow moving lightning storms will be capable of producing locally
heavy rainfall this afternoon. Rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches
in a 60 to 90 minute period will be possible in a few spots which
will cause temporary flooding of roadways and low lying areas.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
An east swell will produce a moderate risk of rip currents at the
beaches of east central Florida. Always swim within sight of a
lifeguard.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Scattered to numerous lightning storms are expected to develop
over the mainland this afternoon. Some of the storms are expected
to push toward the intracoastal and nearshore Atlantic waters.
Mariners are reminded that variable and gusty winds can occur well
away from the heaviest rain of a thunderstorm.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
Scattered lightning storms are forecast to continue into the
Fourth of July weekend. The primary threats will be dangerous
lightning strikes, gusty winds, and locally heavy rain. While the
highest chances for afternoon thunderstorms is expected across
inland areas, coastal locations will still see a threat of
lightning activity each day.

A moderate risk of rip currents will continue.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed today, however spotters are
asked to report rainfall amounts of greater than 3 inches or
observed flooding.

...Locally Dense Smoke Impacting Roadways Near Rockledge...

...Above Normal Storm Coverage Again Today...

Smoke from a lightning-induced wildfire near Rockledge yesterday
continues to burn and smolder this morning. High humidity and light
winds shifting southwest will cause smoke to spread and cross over
Interstate 95 posing a significant hazard to driving with
visibilities capable of dropping to below one-quarter mile within
short distances. Select roads in the vicinity may be closed for the
morning commute. The hazard will persist beyond sunrise into the mid-
morning.

A weakening frontal trough will slowly sag toward Central Florida.
This boundary...combined with afternoon heating and associated
moisture...will again support storms with above normal coverage
today. Showers and storms will become scattered to numerous during
the afternoon and into this evening...further augmented by the sea
breeze and outflow boundary interactions. Storms will be generally
slow in movement and will have the potential for locally heavy rain
and frequent lightning. A few locations could realize several inches
of rain. Storm motion will be generally toward the northeast around
10 mph.

It will be hot and humid with high temperatures in the upper 80s to
lower 90s.

Also...an easterly swell will promote a moderate risk of rip currents
at area beaches. If going to the beach...be sure to swim near a
lifeguard while keeping an eye on the sky.
