THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon within an
area of widely scattered showers moving generally toward the
inland direction along a diffuse east coast breeze. The main
concern is from occasional lightning, with the best chances from
Titusville to Orlando and southward.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Although rain chances are dialed-back from previous days, widely
scattered showers over the coastal waters will move onshore
bringing brief periods of passing heavy rain as they trek inland.
During the afternoon, a few additional thunderstorms are
possible. Locations that are particularly vulnerable due to recent
generous rains should remain marginally concerned, especially in
vicinity of the Saint Johns River Basin.

.COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
Due to the far-reaching effects from Hurricane Maria, large
breaking waves up to 7 feet from long period swells will likely
produce minor to moderate beach erosion along beaches that were
weakened by Irma earlier this month. This will be particularly
true around the times of local high tide. A High Surf Advisory
continues for the entire central Florida Atlantic Coast.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Hurricane Maria is forecast to move northward well east of, and
parallel to, Florida`s Atlantic coast with its closest approach
occurring today. Maria will cause the winds and seas to become
elevated across the coastal waters while also causing long period
swells to propagate toward the east central Florida shoreline.
This will make for hazardous beach conditions again today. The
risk for rip currents will be high...and surf will become very
rough. Swimmers are strongly encouraged to stay out of the water.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Long period swells from Hurricane Maria will propagate through the
coastal waters. Seas across the nearshore Atlantic waters will
continue to build seas to between 7 and 10 feet near shore and up
to 12 feet well offshore. A Small Craft Advisory continues for
the east central Florida Atlantic Waters.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will occur across the
coastal waters today moving west-southwest around the far-reaching
backside of Hurricane Maria. With the somewhat elevated wind
field, occasional gusts of 25-35 knots may occur mainly near
convective cells. The best chance will be south of Cape Canaveral
over the nearshore and intra-coastal waters where thunderstorm
chances are slightly higher.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The Saint Johns river is forecast to remain in flood into early
week near Cocoa...Sanford...Deland...and Astor. Near Geneva the
river is forecast to remain in major flood.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
Although the center of Hurricane Maria is forecast to remain
about 450 miles offshore the Florida Atlantic Coast today and
tonight, large swells will continue to move through the coastal
waters and surf zone through early week. Conditions for small
craft operations will remain very dangerous.

Beachgoers can expect continued high surf and an increased risk
of rip currents again Monday. Minor to moderate beach erosion may
also occur.

A drier weather pattern is setting up as the week unfolds.

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