THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A storm system centered over the northeast Gulf of Mexico this
morning will track southeast across the south Florida peninsula.
This will bring widespread showers to east central Florida,
especially after midday. There also will be a chance for afternoon
thunderstorms that will be capable of producing dangerous cloud-
to-ground lightning, gusty winds, small hail, and torrential
downpours.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Showers will become widespread across the local Atlantic waters by
this afternoon, along with a few thunderstorms. Any storms that
do develop will move from southwest to northeast, on a heading
that will carry them offshore. Any of these storms will be capable
of generating wind gusts in excess of 34 knots as well as
dangerous lightning.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Marine conditions will be poor over the local Atlantic waters as
an approaching storm system allows south to southeast winds to
increase to 15 to 20 knots nearshore and 20 to 25 knots offshore.
Seas will build up to 4 to 6 feet nearshore and 5 to 7 feet
offshore as the winds increase. A Small Craft Advisory is now in
effect for all of the coastal waters of east central Florida.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
As the storm system pushes slowly into the open Atlantic, winds
will back to the northeast from Sebastian Inlet northward,
increasing to 25 to 30 knots with gusts to gale force. This will
generate dangerous marine conditions over the local Atlantic
waters, with seas building to 8 to 12 feet north of Sebastian
Inlet, and 5 to 7 feet to the south. Isolated thunderstorms may
linger into Thursday as well, with cloud-to- ground lightning the
primary threat.

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

.NOW...
A low pressure system over the eastern Gulf of Mexico will push
southeast today...then a secondary low pressure center is forecast to
form over south Florida tonight and move to near the northern
Bahamas Thursday.

This system will bring a few rounds of widespread showers to most of
east central Florida into Thursday morning.  Locally heavy rainfall
of 2 to 3 inches is possible.  Right now...the greatest chance for
these heavier amounts appears to be along the coast...especially in
Brevard and Volusia counties.

A slight chance for lightning storms also exists.

Hazardous boating conditions will occur over the coastal waters
today and surf conditions will be rough along the beaches.
