THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon embedded
within a field of widely scattered showers moving generally toward
the inland direction. 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.

...HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS BEACHES OF PALM BEACH COUNTY...
...MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS REST OF ATLANTIC BEACHES...
...POSSIBLE THUNDERSTORMS ALL AREAS OF SOUTH FLORIDA TODAY...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Rip currents: There is High Risk of rip currents along the beaches
of Palm Beach County, and a Moderate Risk of rip currents along the
rest of the east coast beaches of South Florida.

Thunderstorms: Thunderstorms are possible across South Florida
today. The primary impacts will be lightning and heavy rainfall.

Waves: Northeast swells of 5 to 8 feet will generate seas of 6 to
8 feet in Palm Beach Waters today into tonight.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

Drier air will work into South Florida this week from the north
reducing the the thunderstorms to isolated coverage.

Long period northeast swells from distant Post-Tropical Cyclone Jose
and Hurricane Maria will continue to lead to an enhancement of rip
currents along all Atlantic beaches for most of this week.

Also, Atlantic coastal areas of South Florida may see high surf as
early as Monday morning, which may also lead to some beach erosion,
especially in Palm Beach County.

Marine hazardous conditions will continue to spread southward along
the Atlantic waters early this week due to the long period of
northeast swells.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated at this time.
