THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Scattered lightning storms are expected to develop this afternoon
over the interior of central Florida and move toward the East
around 25 mph. Some of the storms will become strong, especially
as they collide with the east coast sea breeze sitting just inland
from the coast during the mid to late afternoon. The primary
threats will be frequent lightning strikes, strong wind gusts and
very heavy rain. One or two storms may become severe, containing
damaging wind gusts near 60 mph and large hail. The best chance
will be over the coastal counties between 3 pm and 7 pm.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Scattered lightning storms will initiate over the Florida
peninsula and move East around 25 mph toward the east coast during
the afternoon. As these storms approach the coast late in the
day, coverage and intensity will increase before pushing across
the intracoastal and nearshore Atlantic waters. These offshore
moving storms will be capable of producing wind gusts greater than
35 knots along with hail and very heavy rain. Special Marine
Warnings are likely along portions of the coast during the
afternoon and early evening.

.WATERSPOUT IMPACT...
Storms near the coast late today may fully exploit the low level
shear resulting from boundary collisions. This may result in a
funnel cloud or two. Funnel clouds can briefly touch down,
producing a brief tornado or waterspout.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
On Friday, the combination of low relative humidity and gusty
northwest winds will produce a fire weather danger. Any new or
ongoing fires may spread rapidly.

Isolated to scattered lightning storms will return early next
week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotters should monitor the weather and self activate if needed.
