Florida.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Showers and thunderstorms will spread across the area today as
Subtropical Storm Alberto moves north into the southern Gulf of
Mexico. Thunderstorms that develop will be capable of producing
strong gusty winds, locally heavy rains, and frequent deadly
lightning strikes.

...FLOOD IMPACT...
Widespread rain is expected today on top of already saturated
ground. The heavy rain will produce flooding of low lying and
poor drainage areas as well as the ponding of water on roadways.
Motorists should exercise caution.

...RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Breezy winds and high surf over the Gulf waters will produce an
increased risk of rip currents along area beaches beginning this
afternoon.

...MARINE IMPACTS...
Southeast winds will continue to increase across the Gulf waters
today and tonight, with wind speeds of 20 to 30 knots and seas
building to 10 feet. This will create hazardous boating
conditions for small craft operators.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Numerous to widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected
each day through the middle of next week. Thunderstorms will be
capable of producing strong gusty winds, locally heavy rain, and
frequent deadly lightning strikes.

...FLOOD IMPACT...
Deep moisture over the area will allow for the possibility of
heavy rain each day through the middle of next week. The heavy
rain will produce flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas
as well as the ponding of water on roadways. Motorists should
exercise caution.

...COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
Breezy winds turning onshore Sunday afternoon will cause an
increased risk of coastal flooding over Levy County. Coastal
residents should be alert for later statements or warnings, and
take action to protect property.

...RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Breezy winds and high surf over the Gulf waters will continue to
produce an increased risk of rip currents along area beaches
Sunday and Monday.

...MARINE IMPACTS...
Winds of around 20 knots or greater with seas of 7 to 10 feet will
continue to produced hazardous boating conditions for small
craft operators through Tuesday. High pressure will build back
into the area Tuesday and Wednesday, allowing boating conditions
to gradually improve.
