310 AM EST MON FEB 20 2017


...Areas of Locally Dense Fog Forming During the Pre-Dawn...

Conditions are favorable for areas of fog to form across
East Central Florida and linger beyond sunrise. The fog will be
locally dense and reduce visibilities to one-quarter mile or less in
spots, especially near where recent brush fires have occurred.

Motorists should drive at reduced speeds and be extra watchful for
rapidly slowing traffic in front of them. This is especially true for
vehicles on busy interstates, turnpikes, highways, as well as well-
traveled rural routes.

Always use low beam headlights when driving in fog.

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.DENSE FOG/SMOKE IMPACT...
High humidity and light surface winds have allowed patchy dense
fog to develop across east central Floirda this morning. While
most areas remain clear, pockets of dense fog have developed that
have reduced visibility to less than a mile. Local visibilities
may briefly drop below 1/2 mile through sunrise, especially where
smoldering fires mix smoke with the fog. Motorists should be
aware for the potential of fog this morning, especially near
recent fires, as visibility can deteriorate rapidly at highway
speeds. Slow down when encountering fog and use low beam
headlights.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
There will be a slight chance for lightning storms across east
central Florida Wednesday afternoon and evening, associated with a
well developed and unusually southward-tracking low pressure
system expected to develop over Gulf of Mexico. Boating
conditions are expected to deteriorate from mid through late week
as well.

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