THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Scattered showers and isolated storms over the Atlantic coastal
waters will push west and onshore portions of the coast, mainly
southern Brevard and Indian River counties late this morning.
Additional showers and isolated thunderstorms will develop by early
afternoon over inland portions of the coastal counties and spread to
interior counties. Main storm threats include dangerous lightning
strikes and gusty winds up to 40 mph. Also, weak steering flow will
lead to slow and variable storm motion, with any storms capable of
producing locally heavy rainfall up to 3 inches.

For tonight, one or two bands of showers with embedded storms should
redevelop over the Atlantic coastal waters and again push onshore
portions of the coast. Any persistent showers or storms will be
capable of producing locally heavy rainfall along the coast.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A Moderate Risk for rip currents will persist at the beaches of east
central Florida today. While the threat for rip currents will be
present all day, the risk will be highest through 4:00 PM due to
tidal effects.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A few storms that push onshore along the coast this morning or
develop along the inland moving east coast sea breeze in the
afternoon will be capable of producing wind gusts near 34 knots.
Weak steering winds will lead to slow and variable storm motion
today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
Isolated to scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms are
expected through early next week, with the highest chances 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.

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

...Locally Heavy Rain Along the Coast this Morning...

Through Noon...Scattered showers will continue to move west
northwest around 10 mph over the coastal waters and affect portions
of the Space and Treasure coasts. The locally heavy rain along the
Volusia coast will gradually taper off later this morning. Rain
gages in Edgewater have recorded 2 to 3 inches since early this
morning.

Another band of scattered showers will extend from the northern
Bahamas to the coast around Sebastian Inlet. This band should
persist into the afternoon and produce locally heavy downpours near
the coast, especially southern Brevard and Indian River counties.
There is also a chance for lightning strikes with this band.

During the early to mid afternoon, scattered showers and isolated
storms will develop over inland portions of the Treasure coast
counties, Martin and Saint Lucie, as well as interior counties from
Okeechobee north to Orlando metro and Lake county.
