THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
There will be a chance of lightning storms across east central
Florida this afternoon, especially west of I-95, as brisk east
southeast flow, increasing moisture and daytime heating combine
to destabilize the local airmass. The main hazard with any storms
will be cloud to ground lightning strikes, wind gusts up to 40
mph, and local heavy downpours.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Brisk onshore flow will combine with an east to northeast long
period swell to generate a moderate rip current threat at east
central Florida beaches this afternoon. Remember always to swim
within sight of a lifeguard. Rough surf will also pose a hazard
for beachgoers. The rough surf can knock you down and make you
susceptible to being caught in a rip current.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
There will be a chance of lightning storms across east central
Florida and the local Atlantic waters this afternoon. The main
hazard with any storms will be cloud to ground lightning strikes,
wind gusts over 34 knots, and local heavy downpours. Storm
activity will approach from the east.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
A moderate to fresh onshore breeze will generate 5 to 7 foot seas
across east central Florida Atlantic waters through tonight. Seas
up to 8 feet in the Gulf Stream will be possible. Dominant wave
periods around 8 seconds will result in steep waves, making
conditions poor to hazardous for small craft.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
A chance for thunderstorms will continue Monday and Tuesday ahead
of a cold front that will move through the area by Tuesday night.
Local heavy rain, gusty winds and frequent cloud to ground
lightning will accompany stronger storms. Marine conditions will
remain poor for small craft operators on the open Atlantic early
this week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed today.
