THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Showers will continue southward ahead of a cool front passing
through east central Florida today. An isolated lightning storm or
two cannot be ruled out, mainly over the Atlantic waters. Main
threats with any storm will be lightning strikes, wind gusts to
around 35mph, and brief heavy downpours.

.HIGH WIND IMPACT...
Breezy north to north northeast winds developing along the coast
behind the front, with sustained winds up to 20mph.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Breezy northerly winds will produce a strong southward-flowing
current parallel to the beaches today. There will also be a
moderate risk of rip currents. Always swim near a lifeguard and
never swim alone. Avoid swimming near piers and jetties due to the
strong current.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Northerly winds up to 20 knots developing behind the front,
persisting into tonight as winds veer northeasterly. Seas
building to 4 to 6 feet, with up to 7 feet in the Gulf Stream, by
late morning. Small Craft Advisories will go into effect across
all of the east central Florida Atlantic waters by late this
morning.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The Saint Johns River at Astor will remain in Minor Flood Stage
through this weekend due to a combination of high autumnal tides
and north to northeast winds.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
Breezy northeast to east winds around 15 knots will continue
across the Atlantic waters through midweek, while seas remain up
to 6 feet in the Gulf Stream into Monday night. The rip current
risk looks to remain moderate, but elevated onshore flow may lead
to rough surf early this week.

After several dry days, shower chances are expected to increase
late this week into the weekend.

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