THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...REST OF TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.HIGH WIND IMPACT...
Northeast winds of around 20 mph along the east coast will gust as
high as 30 mph, mainly during this morning. Boating conditions
will remain hazardous on the Intracoastal Waterway and on area
lakes in the coastal counties.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Dangerous boating conditions continue as strong northeast winds
of 20 to 25 knots will gust as high as 30 knots over the local
Atlantic waters today. Seas 6 to 9 feet this morning will start to
subside this evening but remain hazardous for small craft through
at least tonight for the offshore waters and nearshore of the
Treasure Coast.

.COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
Rough surf with large breaking waves of 5 to 7 feet will continue
in the surf zone through this evening. Additional minor beach
erosion may occur during this afternoon`s high tide at around 4 PM.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
The risk for numerous strong rip currents will remain high today.
Entering the ocean is not recommended due to the combination of
rough surf and strong rip currents.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
Gusty northeast winds will combine with low relative humidity and
dry vegetation to increase fire weather concerns today. Any
planned or uncontrolled burns will spread rapidly.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
Hazardous boating conditions will continue from around Cape
Canaveral southward through mid day Tuesday. Conditions will
remain poor for small craft operations much of this week, and
could become hazardous again well offshore late in the week.

The threat for numerous strong, dangerous rip currents will be
high again Tuesday, and possibly from mid to late week as well.

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

...HIGH SURF ADVISORY IN EFFECT THROUGH 7 PM THIS EVENING...

...HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK IN EFFECT THROUGH 7 PM THIS EVENING...

* WHAT...For the High Surf Advisory, large breaking waves of 5 to
  7 feet in the surf zone. For the High Rip Current Risk, numerous
  strong and dangerous rip currents.

* WHERE...Southern Brevard, Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin,
  Coastal Volusia and Northern Brevard Counties.

* WHEN...Through 7 PM this evening.

* IMPACTS...Dangerous swimming and surfing conditions along with
  local beach erosion around the times of high tide at 4 AM this
  morning and again around 4 PM this afternoon.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

High surf will affect the beaches in the advisory area, producing
localized beach erosion and dangerous swimming conditions.
Swimmers should remain out of the water due to large breaking
waves and dangerous surf conditions, which could knock you down,
and make you even more susceptible to being swept away from the
coast by a rip current.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the
sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as jetties and
piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and
signs.
