THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated to scattered storms will be possible across portions of
east central Florida today, with the highest coverage near the I-4
corridor. Any storms that do develop may be capable of producing
frequent lightning strikes, wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph, and heavy
downpours. Slow-moving storms may produce quick rainfall
accumulations of 1 to 3 inches, with localized flooding not able to
be ruled out. Activity is forecast to diminish into the late
evening, with ongoing shower development possible across the local
Atlantic waters overnight.

.EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACT...
High temperatures across east central Florida are forecast to reach
the low to mid 90s, with peak heat indices ranging from 100 to 105.
A Moderate HeatRisk will exist across the area. Those spending
extended periods of time outside are encouraged to 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...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
Scattered lightning storms will be possible each afternoon and
evening through the weekend and into early next week. Greatest
coverage will be across the interior where boundary collisions
between the sea breeze and outflow boundaries 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 the weekend.

Excessive heat is expected to continue through this week with at
least a Moderate to Major Heat Risk. Afternoon high temperatures
in the 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 and into the weekend. Some spots may be able to reach
heat indices of 108 to 110.

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