THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A southwest flow of deep moisture will remain in place across
east central Florida again today. Scattered showers and lightning
storms are expected to develop along and ahead of the west coast
sea breeze around noon, and push into east central Florida during
the afternoon. Storms are also expected to form during the mid to
late afternoon along the east coast sea breeze from Brevard
County southward, and along the Lake Okeechobee breeze.

Storm motion will be toward the northeast, with a forward speed of
15 to 20 mph north of Lake Kissimmee and Melbourne, and a little
slower to the south, about 10 to 15 mph. A few strong storms will be
possible today, with wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph, frequent cloud to
ground lightning, and torrential downpours. Move indoors to safety
at the first sign of threatening skies, or if you hear thunder.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches will be possible in today`s
storms, with isolated amounts as high as 3 inches along the
Treasure Coast, where interactions between the sea and lake
breezes is likely to occur. Localized flooding of urban and poorly
drained and low lying areas will be possible. Remember, never try
to drive across water covered roads. The water depth may be too
great to allow your vehicle to get across safely.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Wind gusts to around 35 knots will be possible across inland lakes
as well as the Intracoastal Waterway and near shore Atlantic waters
today. Deadly cloud to water lightning strikes and locally higher
seas will also accompany any storms today. Boaters should watch
for storms approaching rapidly from the southwest this afternoon,
and seek safe harbor well in advance.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
Scattered afternoon and early evening lightning storms are
expected Sunday and Monday, with coverage increasing starting
Tuesday as a weak inverted trough moves into central Florida from
the Bahamas. The threat for locally heavy rainfall and minor
flooding will be one of the main concerns with storms due to
continued saturated ground conditions across much of the area.
Additional storm hazards will include dangerous lightning strikes
and strong gusty winds.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed today and tonight. However,
spotters are requested to report any rainfall amounts in excess
of two inches, or any flooding.
