This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for West Central And Southwest
Florida.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

...EXCESSIVE COLD IMPACT...
Freezing temperatures will be possible over portions of the
Nature Coast early this morning. A freeze warning is in effect
for Levy, Citrus, Sumter, Hernando, and inland sections of Pasco
counties until 8 AM EST this morning. In addition to the cold
temperatures areas of frost will also be possible prior to
sunrise. Make sure to dress in layers to protect yourself from the
cold this morning. Ensure children waiting for the school bus are
properly dressed to protect them from the cold.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.

...RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A cold front will move south through the region on Tuesday.
In the wake of the front an increasing northwest to northerly
wind flow along with building seas can be expected over the
adjacent Gulf waters during Tuesday afternoon and night. The
increasing winds and elevated waves will enhance the risk of
rip currents along area beaches during Tuesday afternoon through
mid day on Wednesday. If you plan to visit the beach heed the
advice of the beach patrol.

...MARINE IMPACTS...
A cold front will move south through the region on Tuesday.
Lack of moisture along and ahead of the front will preclude
rain chances with its passage, however an increasing northwest
to northerly wind flow is expected in its wake. Northwest to
north winds are expected to increase to 20 to 25 knots with
higher gusts over the adjacent Gulf waters on Tuesday as the
front moves south through the waters with rough boating conditions
developing for small craft operators which will continue through
early Wednesday. Another cold front is expected to move south
through the region on Friday bringing with it another period
of elevated winds and seas with rough boating conditions expected
during Friday night into early Saturday.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today.
