THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Northerly winds 15 to 20 mph will develop a southward flowing
longshore current along the central Florida Atlantic coastline. This
current can knock swimmers off their feet or into deeper water,
making them more susceptible to dangerous rip currents, and also
increase the risk of rip currents near piers and jetties. A moderate
risk of rip currents also continues at all area beaches.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Poor to hazardous boating conditions as seas build in response to
fresh northerly winds. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the
Volusia and the Brevard offshore waters, and a Small Craft
Advisory for the Treasure Coast waters goes into effect this
afternoon, for winds around 20 knots and seas building up to 8
feet in the Gulf Stream. Small craft should exercise caution in
the Volusia and Brevard nearshore waters for winds around 20 knots
and seas up to 6 feet.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
Historic rainfall from Hurricane Ian will continue to produce
flooding along several local rivers for some time.

Along the Saint Johns River, Astor will remain in Major Flood Stage
for the foreseeable future. The river will remain steady and just
below record flood level through the rest of the week.

At Geneva above Lake Harney, the river will remain in Major Flood
Stage for the foreseeable future. It is forecast to gradually drop,
but remain above record flood level into early next week.

Near Deland, the river will remain in Major Flood Stage for the
foreseeable future. It is forecast to crest at or just above record
flood level late this week or weekend.

Near Sanford, the river has reached Major Flood Stage. It is
forecast to crest near record flood level late this week.

Near Cocoa, the river is in Minor Flood stage. It is forecast to
remain at or near Minor Flood stage through late week and into the
weekend.

The Little Wekiva River near Altamonte Springs is in Moderate Flood
Stage and is expected to continue to decline through midweek.

Shingle Creek near Campbell is in Major Flood Stage. It is forecast
to gradually drop, but remain in Major Flood Stage through at least
late week. Discharges from upstream may slow the drop or even
cause brief additional rises.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
Hazardous boating conditions continue through mid week, then
improving late in the week. Seas will be slow to subside in the
Gulf Stream due to long period swell from the northeast, remaining
hazardous through Wednesday morning and poor until Thursday.

A High Risk of life-threatening rip currents and rough surf is
expected at all central Florida Atlantic beaches through late week
due to long period swell.

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

* WHAT...A southward flowing longshore current, and a moderate
  risk of rip currents, are expected.

* WHERE...Cape Canaveral to Jupiter Inlet.

* WHEN...Through late tonight.

* IMPACTS...Fresh northerly winds are producing a strong southward
  flowing longshore current, which can knock swimmers off their
  feet or into deeper water, making them more susceptible to
  dangerous rip currents. The longshore current will also increase
  the risk of rip currents near piers and jetties.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
