THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated lightning storms remain possible across east central
Florida. Wind gusts of 30 to 40 mph, cloud to ground lightning
strikes and brief, torrential downpours may occur with today`s
showers and storms.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Fast-moving heavy downpours may produce a quick inch or so of
rainfall, which could cause temporary ponding of water on roads
and in poor drainage areas. The Treasure Coast counties of Indian
River, Saint Lucie, and Martin remain the most susceptible to
additional temporary inundation ponding of water in low areas.

.HIGH WIND IMPACT...
East winds of 15 to 20 mph gusting to around 25 mph will occur
along the barrier islands and Intracoastal Waterway today, posing
a hazard to boaters.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A High risk of dangerous rip currents continues at the east central
Florida beaches. While the threat for rip currents will be present
all night, it will be highest after 230 PM this afternoon due to
tidal effects. Use extreme caution if entering the water today.
Always swim within sight of a lifeguard and never swim alone.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Today`s fast-moving showers or isolated lightning storms will be
capable of producing wind gusts to 35 knots over the local
Atlantic, Intracoastal Waterway and inland lakes. Any activity
will move rapidly west at 20 to 25 knots.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Hazardous conditions continue across the Atlantic waters for
small craft operators. East winds of 20 knots will gust to between
25 and 30 knots, with seas of 6 to 8 feet. A Small Craft Advisory
remains in effect for the local Atlantic.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The latest forecast has the Saint Johns River at Astor rising to
Moderate Flood Stage by this evening and then remain right around
Moderate Flood Stage through the rest of this week. Elsewhere,
the Saint Johns River at Sanford and near Lake Harney, is
forecast to stay within Action Stage, while at DeLand the river is
forecast to remain just below Action Stage. Refer to daily Flood
Statements and River Statements from NWS Melbourne for the latest
river levels and forecasts.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
Brisk winds will continue into late week, producing breezy
conditions along the coast. Seas will remain high over the next
several days, maintaining hazardous conditions for small craft
operators over the local Atlantic waters. Rough surf and a high
risk of rip currents are anticipated to last through the week.

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

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don`t swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help.
