THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Sufficient moisture will remain in place today for scattered to
numerous showers and lightning storms to develop along local sea
and lake breezes during the afternoon. The highest coverage will
be west of Interstate 95 and especially from greater Sanford,
Orlando and Kissimmee-Saint Cloud westward across Lake County due
to the potential for a late day sea breeze collision.

Storm motion today will be slow and erratic, with perhaps a slow
north drift. Frequent cloud to ground lightning strikes, slow
moving torrential downpours, and wind gusts to 40 mph will be
possible.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Because of the slow storm motion today, the threat for locally
heavy rainfall totaling 1 to 3 inches, or slightly higher in a
few spots, will be greater than the past few days. This is more
likely to cause temporary flooding of roads, and other poorly
drained and low lying areas. This is especially true for areas
with standing water and near full water retention areas due to
what has been a wet summer in many locations thus far.

Never drive across water covered roadways, and remember to reduce
your speed, and use your wipers and low beam headlights if you
encounter heavy rain while driving.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A few wind gusts to near 35 knots will be possible this afternoon,
mainly over inland lakes west of Interstate 95.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
There will be a moderate risk for life-threatening rip currents
at the central Florida Atlantic beaches once again today. While
rips will be present all day, the threat will be highest between
200 PM and sunset due to tidal effects. To reduce your chance of
being caught in the seaward pull of a rip current, swim only
within sight of a lifeguard, and never swim alone, while following
social distancing guidelines.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
Above normal chances for showers and lightning storms expected
each afternoon over the weekend and into early next week. The
greatest threats will be frequent cloud to ground lightning
strikes, gusty winds, and torrential downpours. The risk for
dangerous rip currents will also remain Moderate.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed today and tonight. However,
spotters are requested to report any rainfall amounts of 2 inches
or more, or relay any reports of flooding to the National Weather
Service office in Melbourne.
