THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Breezy east winds will create rough and dangerous surf along with
a moderate risk of rip currents. Rough surf can be more dangerous
than it appears while standing on the beach. If you choose to
enter the water, only swim within sight of a lifeguard and never
swim alone.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
East winds between 15 to 20 knots will lead to choppy seas of 5
to 7 feet. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for all but the
nearshore waters of Volusia County coast where boaters should
exercise caution for seas up to 6 feet.

.COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
Rough surf will bring the possibility of minor beach erosion
around the time of high tide this morning and again this evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
Breezy onshore flow will continue to produce poor to hazardous
boating conditions through the weekend, as well as rough and
choppy surf at area beaches. A moderate risk of rip currents can
be expected.

Increasing moisture out ahead of a strong cold front will bring a
renewed chance for thunderstorms on Monday. A higher coverage of
lightning storms is expected to accompany the front overnight
Monday into Tuesday, with cloud-to-ground lightning strikes and
brief gusty winds the primary weather hazards.

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