THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A weak surface trough will dig into central Florida today and
dissipate tonight. The slight increase in moisture and convergence
associated with this boundary, coupled with the afternoon sea and
lake breezes, will lead to isolated to scattered showers and
lightning storms across east central Florida during the afternoon
and early evening. Storm chances will be highest over the interior
and north, from Lake Kissimmee-Saint Cloud to great Orlando Sanford,
Lake George and westward across Lake County. this is due to the
expected late afternoon and early evening sea breeze collision.

Today`s storms will drift slowly south to southeast at around 5
MPH, but will redevelop farther inland along the sea breeze. A few
storms will be capable of producing cloud to ground lightning
strikes, torrential downpours of 1 to 2 inches, and wind gusts to
around 40 MPH. Move indoors to safety at the first sign of
threatening skies, or if you hear thunder.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
storms will also be capable of producing wind gusts up to 30 or
35 knots over the larger lakes of the interior counties. Storm
motion will be slow and erratic.

.EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACT...
The combination of above normal temperatures reaching the lower to
middle 90s this afternoon, and high humidity will result in heat
indices of between 100 and 105 over much of east central Florida,
especially from Interstate 95 westward across the interior. If
working or recreating outdoors for any length of time, be sure to
take frequent breaks out of the sun, and drink plenty of water.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Continues long period swells will maintain a Moderate Threat for
dangerous Rip Currents in the surf zone along the central Florida
Atlantic beaches today. While the threat for strong rips will be
present all day, the risk will be highest from sunrise through 200
PM due to tidal effects.

If you decide to beat the heat by heading to the ocean today, check
with your local beach patrol for information about ocean hazards,
and heed their advice. Swim only within sight of a lifeguard, and
never swim alone.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
Isolated to scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms are
expected through early next week, with slightly higher chances
generally over the interior. The main storm threats will be
frequent cloud to ground lightning, gusty winds, and heavy
downpours producing ponding of water in urbanized and poorly
drained areas.

Lingering long-period swells will maintain a Moderate Risk of Rip
Currents at area beaches.


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