THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
The east coast sea breeze will develop along the coast from the Cape
southward late this morning then develop north of the Cape by early
afternoon. Isolated storms may develop along the sea breeze as it
pushes inland across the coastal counties during the early to mid
afternoon. Late afternoon and early evening boundary collisions will
focus scattered lightning storms over the interior counties. The
primary storm threats include cloud to ground lightning strikes,
wind gusts up to 40 mph, and locally heavy downpours. Storm motion
will be slow and erratic.

.EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACT...
The combination of above normal temperatures and high humidity will
produce peak heat index values between 100 and 105 over much of
east central Florida, especially inland from the coast. If
working or recreating outdoors, take frequent breaks out of the
sun and drink plenty of water.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Long period swells will maintain a Moderate risk of life-threatening
rip currents in the surf zone. The threat for strong rip currents
will be present all day; however, the risk will be highest through 1
pm due to tidal effects.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
The best chance for lightning storms will be late this afternoon and
early this evening over the interior counties as a result of
boundary collisions. A few strong storms capable of producing gusty
winds around 35 knots and dangerous lightning strikes may affect
some inland lakes. Storm motion will be slow and erratic.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
Isolated to scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms are
expected. 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 this week.

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

...Showers and Storms Will Develop as Sea Breeze Pushes Inland...

High resolution visible satellite imagery shows the east coast sea
breeze has formed from Cape Canaveral south along the Treasure
coast. The sea breeze will develop north of the Cape, along the
Volusia coast, early this afternoon. Through 4 pm, isolated showers
and storms will form along the sea breeze as it pushes inland across
the coastal counties as well as around the northern and eastern
shores of Lake Okeechobee. Scattered lightning storms are expected
to develop over Volusia, Flagler and north Lake counties as the sea
breeze pushes inland there. Frequent lightning strikes and gusty
winds up to 45 mph will be possible in the stronger storms. Slow and
erratic storm motion will produce locally heavy downpours and
temporary flooding of urbanized and poor drainage areas.

High temperatures will range from the lower 90s along the coast to
about 95 degrees over the interior. Afternoon heat indices will
range from 100 to 105 degrees across the region.

There will be a Moderate Threat for dangerous Rip Currents at the
central Florida Atlantic beaches today. Remember to swim only within
sight of a lifeguard, and never swim alone.
