THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Heavy downpours from fast moving showers and storms may produce a
quick inch or so of rainfall, which could cause temporary ponding
of water on roads and in poor drainage areas. Indian River, Saint
Lucie, and Martin Counties remain the most susceptible to
additional temporary inundation ponding of water in low areas.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
There will continue to be a high risk of rip currents at all east
central Florida beaches. While the threat for rip currents will
be present all night, it will be highest during the hours
surrounding low tide. Rough surf will also continue. Use extreme
caution if at the beach. Entering the surf is highly discouraged.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
East winds of 15 to 20 knots with higher gusts will continue over
the local Atlantic waters today, with seas persisting at 6 to 8
feet. A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect for the for the
local Atlantic.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The latest forecast has the Saint Johns River at Astor remaining
near Moderate Flood Stage through the rest of this week.
Elsewhere, the Saint Johns River at Sanford and near Lake Harney,
is forecast to stay within Action Stage, while at DeLand the river
is forecast to remain just below Action Stage. Refer to daily
Flood Statements and River Statements from NWS Melbourne for the
latest river levels and forecasts.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
Brisk winds will continue into late week, producing breezy
conditions along the coast. Seas will remain high over the next
several days due to swells arriving from distant Tropical Cyclone
Epsilon, maintaining hazardous conditions for small craft
operators over the local Atlantic waters. Rough surf and a high
risk of rip currents are anticipated to last through the week.

Scattered showers and isolated storms are expected each day  into
the weekend.

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

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the
sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as jetties and
piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and
signs.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don`t swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help.
