THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Adequate moisture will continue to generate occasional showers,
with a few embedded afternoon lightning storms possible. Brief
periods of heavy rain, cloud to ground lightning strikes, and wind
gusts between 30 and 40 mph will occur with the strongest
activity, mainly inland from the coast. The greatest coverage is
expected this afternoon over the interior and possibly near the
coast from south Brevard County through the Treasure Coast.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Locally heavy rain will be capable of producing 1 to 2 inches of
rain in a short 60 to 90 minute period. This will likely cause
some temporary inundation of roads and other poor drainage areas,
especially in locations which recently experienced heavy rainfall.
Areas of greatest concern continue to be Saint Lucie and Martin
counties due to recent heavy rainfall. The threat for heavy rain
will be highest over the interior this afternoon.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
The combination of weather and ocean conditions will produce a
Moderate risk of rip currents at the beaches of east central
Florida. Always swim within sight of a lifeguard.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Wind gusts up to 34 knots will be possible near heavy showers and
isolated lightning storms, affecting the intracoastal and
nearshore Atlantic waters south of Sebastian Inlet. The threat
will extend to inland lakes this afternoon. Boaters should be on
the lookout for storms approaching from the south and move to safe
harbor if storms threaten.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
With potential weak low pressure development over the Gulf late
this week, a plume of deep moisture is expected to remain over
the Florida peninsula through the holiday weekend producing
scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms with periods of
heavy rainfall, dangerous cloud to ground lightning strikes, and
gusty winds.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed today. However, storm
spotters are requested to submit rainfall reports of 2 inches or
more to the National Weather Service in Melbourne.
