THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Numerous to widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms will
cross central Florida this afternoon ahead of a weak low pressure
system over the eastern Gulf. A few strong to severe storms will
be possible, with the main threats being dangerous lightning
strikes, small hail and strong wind gusts up to 50 mph. There is
also a low threat for damaging winds around 60 mph and a brief
tornado.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
A few strong storms will be capable of producing rainfall amounts
around 2 inches. Locally higher amounts are possible, especially
where repeated shower activity occurs. Considerable ponding of
water will occur on roadways and other poorly drained areas.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A moderate risk of rip currents will exist along the beaches of
east central Florida today. When arriving at the beach, check with
ocean rescue personnel on the latest surf conditions and always
swim near a lifeguard.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Isolated thunderstorms will move east to northeast at 20 to 25
knots. There is a potential for wind gusts in excess of 34 knots
as the storms move across inland lakes and offshore into the
Atlantic.

.WATERSPOUT IMPACT...
Any stronger storms that push offshore or that develop over the
coastal waters will have the potential to produce a waterspout.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Northerly winds will increase to 15 to 20 knots after midnight,
building seas to 6 to 7 feet over the coastal waters of Volusia
County. A Small Craft Advisory goes into effect for these waters
late tonight for these hazardous boating conditions.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
Recent and additional rainfall through Friday will cause the St.
Johns River near Astor to rise to minor flood stage and hold near
there into the weekend.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
An unsettled weather pattern will continue through late week with
scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms into Friday. A few
stronger storms will be possible with locally heavy rainfall,
gusty winds and dangerous lighting strikes being the main
thunderstorm hazards.

Seas will continue to build up to 6 to 7 feet over the offshore
waters, and nearshore north of Sebastian Inlet into Friday,
producing poor to hazardous boating conditions.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotters are requested to monitor the weather and self activate
if needed.
