THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated to Scattered lightning storms are expected to develop
across east-central Florida this afternoon and evening. Starting
across the inland areas early to mid afternoon with the west coast
sea breeze, then extending toward the east coast later in the
afternoon with east coast sea breeze formation at the immediate
coast. Highest coverage will be nearer the east coast in the
early evening with larger boundary collisions and possible cell
mergers. These storms will produce frequent lightning strikes and
torrential downpours, with the strongest storms capable of
producing wind gusts up to around 40 mph. Expect storm movement
toward the east at 5 to 10 mph, but erratic movement will still
remain possible due to the rather weal steering flow aloft.

A storm or two may be capable of producing 1 to 3 inches of
rainfall in a short period of time. This may cause localized
flooding of roads and other poorly drained urban and low lying
areas. Never drive into an area where water covers the road.

.EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACT...
Peak heat index values this afternoon will reach between 101 and
107 across much of east-central Florida. If outdoors for a
prolonged period of time, be sure to take plenty of breaks in an
air conditioned location, wear light clothing, and stay hydrated.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
There is a Moderate risk of life-threatening rip currents at all
Central Florida Atlantic beaches today. Remember to always swim
within sight of a life guard, and never enter the surf alone.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A few of the stronger lightning storms today could produce wind
gusts up to 35 knots across the local Atlantic waters,
Intracoastal Waterway, and inland lakes.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
Scattered afternoon and early evening lightning storms are
forecast on Sunday with coverage increasing to numerous for early
through mid next week. Frequent cloud to ground lightning
strikes, torrential downpours, and wind gusts up to 40 mph will be
the main threats. Localized poor drainage flooding is possible in
areas that receive heavy rainfall.

Heat indices will reach between 101 and 107 across most of the
local area on Sunday and Monday.

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