THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Scattered to numerous showers and storms will be possible across
east central Florida today, with the highest coverage forecast to
occur near the I-4 corridor. Storms will be capable of producing
frequent lightning strikes, wind gust of 40 to 50 mph, and heavy
downpours. Weak steering flow aloft causing slow and erratic
moving storms may lead to quick rainfall accumulations of 1 to 3
inches in spots, which could lead to localized flooding in low-
lying and poorly drained urban areas. Activity is forecast to
diminish before midnight. Continued isolated to scattered
development across the local Atlantic waters overnight cannot
fully be ruled out.

.EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACT...
Temperatures are once again forecast to climb into the low to mid
90s, with peak heat indices ranging from 102 to 107. A Moderate
to Major HeatRisk also exists across east central Florida today.
Those spending extended periods of time outside are encouraged to
take the proper precautions to prevent heat-related illness. Take
frequent breaks in the shade or an air conditioned building and
remain well hydrated.

.RIP CURRENT AND SURF IMPACT...
A Moderate Risk of rip currents will exist at all east central
Florida beaches today. Always swim near a lifeguard and never enter
the ocean alone.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
Scattered lightning storms will be possible each afternoon and
evening through the weekend. Greatest coverage will be across the
interior where boundary collisions between the sea breezes and
outflows are forecast to occur. Storms will be capable of producing
frequent lightning strikes, gusty winds, and locally heavy rainfall.

At least a Moderate risk of dangerous rip currents will continue at
area beaches into mid week.

Excessive heat is expected to continue through this week with a
Moderate to Major Heat Risk. Afternoon high temperatures in the
low to mid 90s will combine with high humidity to result in heat
index values between 102 to 107 through at least the remainder of
the work week.

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