A low pressure system over the eastern Gulf of Mexico will push
southeast today...then a secondary low pressure center is forecast to
form over south Florida tonight and move to near the northern
Bahamas Thursday.

This system will bring a few rounds of widespread showers to most of
east central Florida into Thursday morning.  Locally heavy rainfall
of 2 to 3 inches is possible.  Right now...the greatest chance for
these heavier amounts appears to be along the coast...especially in
Brevard and Volusia counties.

A slight chance for lightning storms also exists.

Hazardous boating conditions will occur over the coastal waters
today and surf conditions will be rough along the beaches.
