THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS NOT EXPECTED IN EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
TROPICAL DEPRESSION NUMBER TWO, LOCATED ABOUT 350 MILES OFFSHORE

IF YOU BECOME CAUGHT IN A RIP CURRENT...YELL FOR HELP. REMAIN
CALM...DO NOT EXHAUST YOURSELF...STAY AFLOAT WHILE WAITING FOR HELP.
IF YOU HAVE TO SWIM OUT OF A RIP CURRENT...SWIM PARALLEL TO SHORE
AND THEN BACK TOWARD THE BEACH WHEN POSSIBLE. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SWIM
DIRECTLY AGAINST A RIP CURRENT AS YOU WILL TIRE QUICKLY.

WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT THE BEACH, BE SURE TO CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL BEACH
PATROL BEFORE ENTERING THE SURF THIS WEEKEND. SWIM ONLY WITHIN SIGHT
OF A LIFEGUARD, AND REMEMBER TO SWIM ONLY WITH NEVER SWIM ALONE.
