signs.

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.DENSE FOG/SMOKE IMPACT...
Areas of low clouds and patchy fog, locally dense, may reduce
visibilities to less than one mile in some prone locations early
this morning along and north of I-4. If you`ll be out driving
early this morning, prepare for encountering locally dense fog.
Leave a little early to allow yourself sufficient time to safely
reach your destination. When driving in dense fog, reduce your
speed, use your low beam headlights, and leave extra distance
between your vehicle and the one in front of you. Any fog that
develops should burn off by around 9 AM.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated lightning storms will be possible, mainly this afternoon,
south of a line from Orlando to the Cape. Gusty winds of 30 to 40
mph, occasional lightning strikes and brief moderate to heavy
rainfall will be the main impacts as storms move mainly to the
north or northwest at 5 to 10 mph.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Any additional heavy showers that occur across already saturated
grounds of southern Brevard, Indian River, Saint Lucie and Martin
counties, will quickly become runoff and produce ponding of water
on roads, yards and poor drainage areas.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
There will continue to be a High risk of life-threatening rip
currents at all east central Florida beaches. While the threat for
rip currents will be present all day, it will be highest during
the hours surrounding low tide. Rough surf will also continue. Use
extreme caution at the beach. Entering the water remains highly
discouraged.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Wind gusts up to around 35 knots and a waterspout or two will be
possible this morning over the local Atlantic waters and the Gulf
Stream south of Cocoa Beach.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Seas up to 6 feet in a long period swell will continue over the
offshore waters this morning before gradual improvement into this
afternoon. Small craft should exercise caution if venturing into
this portion of the adjacent Atlantic waters.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The latest forecast has the Saint Johns River at Astor continuing
a slow decrease within Minor Flood Stage through the upcoming week.
Elsewhere, the Saint Johns River at Sanford and near Lake Harney
is forecast to stay within Action Stage, which is just below Flood
Stage. Refer to daily Flood Statements and River Statements from
NWS Melbourne for the latest river levels and forecasts.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents is anticipated into late
week at area beaches. Isolated to scattered showers and isolated
lightning storms are expected most of this week.
