THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Northwest to north winds will increase 15 to 20 knots this
evening as low pressure deepens offshore the Carolina coast. Then
strong high pressure will begin to build over the area and bring
a secondary surge of north winds late tonight to the Volusia and
Brevard waters. North winds increase to 20 to 30 knots, with gusts
up to 35 to 40 knots. Seas will build 6 to 8 feet nearshore north
of Sebastian Inlet and 8 to 11 feet in the Gulf Stream.

.HIGH WIND IMPACT...
As a cold front pushes across our area tonight, winds will quickly
increase behind the front near sunrise on Friday. Along the
barrier islands and Intracoastal Waterways of Volusia and Brevard
Counties, north winds increase to 15 to 20 mph with gusts of 25
to 30 mph.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
Boating and beach conditions quickly become very hazardous early
Friday, as north to northeast winds increase 15 to 25 mph over
land and 25 to 30 knots over water, with frequent gusts to Gale
Force. Seas will build 9 to 12 feet near shore and up to 17 feet
in the Gulf Stream. Large breaking waves up to 9 feet are expected
in the surf zone, resulting in minor to moderate beach erosion.
High risk of rip currents is likely Friday into the weekend.

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