A long period ocean swell of 3 to 4 feet will produce a High Risk

that might be in effect for your county or community. If you do
decided to head to the beach today, swim only within sight of a

shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave
for help.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
The combination of hot temperatures reaching the lower 90s, low
relative humidity and increasingly dry ground and vegetation will
lead to a high fire danger in east central Florida for areas west
of Interstate 95.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
Above normal temperatures are expected through Tuesday, with near
record highs in the lower 90s inland from the coast. Persons who
will be working or recreating outdoors should wear sun protection,
remain hydrated, and take indoor rest breaks as needed.

Above normal temperatures, low relative humidity and little
chance for any rain through Tuesday will produce a High Fire
Danger over interior areas through early next week. Daily sea
breezes will keep humidities higher along the coast but also
produce slightly higher wind speeds.


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