THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Plentiful moisture will continue to generate occasional showers,
with a few embedded lightning storms. Brief periods of heavy
rain, cloud to ground lightning strikes, and wind gusts between 30
to 40 mph will occur with the heaviest activity. The greatest
coverage is expected this morning with a decrease in rain and
storms this afternoon especially along the coast.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Locally heavy rain will be capable of producing 1 to 3 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.

.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. Southeast winds will result in a northward flowing
current in the surf zone again today. Longshore currents can be
strong enough to knock you off the sandbar and into deeper water.
Always swim near a lifeguard and never try to swim directly
against currents that occur at the beaches.

.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 this morning as well as some inland
lakes. Boaters should be on the lookout for storms approaching
from the south and move to safe harbor if storms threaten.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Southeast winds between 15 to 20 knots will generate choppy seas
of 5 to 6 feet on the open Atlantic waters. Small craft operators
should exercise caution in these poor boating conditions.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
Scattered to numerous afternoon and evening showers and
thunderstorms are forecast to continue this week, with periods
of heavy rainfall, dangerous cloud to ground lightning strikes,
and gusty winds.

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

.NOW...

Through early afternoon...A moist southeast flow will continue to
produce and push showers across east central Florida through the
late morning and afternoon. Locally heavy rain showers currently
located along the coastal areas will begin to push inland this
afternoon. Some of these showers may produce 1 to 2 inches of rain
in a short amount of time leading to minor flooding in the affected
areas. Isolated lightning is also possible with the stronger
showers. Motorists should slow down if heavy rain is encountered. Do
not drive through flooded roadways, remember: Turn Around, Don`t
Drown.

Winds of 30 to 35 knots are possible over inland lakes and along the
intracoastal and near shore waters with the heavier shower activity.
Boaters should be on the lookout for storms approaching from the
south and southeast, and move to safe harbor if storms threaten.

The combination of weather and ocean conditions will produce a
moderate risk of rip currents at the beaches of east central
Florida. Southeast winds will result in a northward flowing current
in the surf zone again today. Longshore currents can be strong
enough to knock you off the sandbar and into deeper water. Always
swim near a lifeguard and never try to swim directly against
currents that occur at the beaches.

Southeast winds between 15 to 20 knots will generate choppy seas of
5 to 6 feet on the open Atlantic waters. Small craft operators
should exercise caution in these poor boating conditions.
