THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Scattered thunderstorms will move east at 10 to 15 mph across
east central Florida, mainly this afternoon. Main threats will be
deadly lightning strikes, wind gusts up to 35mph, and heavy
downpours.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
With ample available moisture, storms today will be capable of
producing 1 to 2 inches of rainfall in a short period of time.
While storms will be moving today, there will be a risk of ponding
water or poor drainage flooding, especially in areas that have
received rainfall over the last few days or where training storms
set up.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
There will be a high risk of life threatening rip currents at all
east central Florida beaches today. While the threat will be
present all day, it will be highest from Noon to 6PM. Rip
currents are dangerous to all levels of swimmers. Always swim in
sight of a lifeguard and never swim alone.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Scattered thunderstorms will move toward the east at 10 to 15 mph
today and be capable of producing occasional lightning strikes
and gusty winds up to 35 kts over the inland lakes and Atlantic
waters.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
Local rainfall and tidal influences are forecast to keep river
levels of the Saint Johns around minor flood stage at Astor
into early next week.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
Scattered to numerous showers and a few lightning storms are
expected this weekend with locally heavy rain possible along the
Volusia coast Saturday and Saturday night and spreading across the
remainder of east central Florida on Sunday.

Very hazardous boating and beach conditions will develop late
Saturday into Sunday, and continue into early next week with windy
northeasterly winds increasing as large, long-period swells arrive
from the Atlantic. Rough, pounding surf and a high risk of numerous
strong rip currents can be expected at area beaches along with the
potential for moderate to significant beach erosion during high
tide cycles at least through Monday.

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