THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.HIGH WIND IMPACT...
East to southeast winds will remain near 20 mph in Brevard,
Indian River, Saint Lucie, Martin and Okeechobee Counties, and
gust up to 30 mph, especially for the barrier island communities,
through most of the afternoon. This will create hazardous boating
conditions on area lakes, as well as the Intracoastal Waterway.
A Lake Wind Advisory has been issued from this morning through
400 PM for these counties.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
East to southeast winds around 20 knots will continue to produce
hazardous conditions for small craft operation. Expect seas of 6
to 8 feet near shore and 9 to 10 feet offshore today. Conditions
will start to abate near shore tonight, but will remain poor to
hazardous through early Sunday morning. A Small Craft Advisory
remains in effect for the local Atlantic waters out to 60 miles.

.COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
Large breaking waves of 5 to 7 feet will also continue along the
coast today. This will continue to produce dangerous conditions
for anyone in the surf zone. Minor beach erosion remains possible
around the time of the next high tide, which will occur between
200 PM and 230 PM this afternoon. A High Surf Advisory continues
for the entire east central Florida coast through 400 PM.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Numerous, strong rip currents will also be present in the surf
zone today. The threat will be highest this morning through 1100
AM, and in the late afternoon after 500 PM due to tidal effects.
Because of the combination of deteriorating surf conditions and
increasing rip currents, entering the water is not recommended.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
While seas and surf continue to subside on Sunday, a strong cold
front will push through east central Florida Sunday night. This
will produce another surge of strong north to winds, along with
building seas and surf, for several days starting Monday.

Temperatures will reach the upper 30s and lower 40s across the
region Monday night, with a chilly north breeze near 10 mph.
This could produce wind chill readings as low as the lower 30s
by sunrise tuesday. Similarly cold temperatures are expected for
areas west of Interstate 95 on Tuesday night.


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