THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated to scattered lightning storms are forecast mainly over the
Atlantic waters south of Sebastian Inlet, some of which will push
onshore the Treasure coast beginning with Martin county. A threat
for lightning storms will edge northward overnight possibly reaching
southern Brevard county. Primary threats will be occasional
lightning strikes, along with briefly gusty winds, and moderate to
heavy rainfall.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Locally heavy rainfall will be possible along portions of the coast
south of the Cape, especially along the Treasure coast of Martin.
Saint Lucie and Indian River counties. Additional rainfall amounts
of 1 to 3 inches with isolated higher amounts may occur in bands
that develop and push onshore. This may produce localized road,
urban and poor drainage flooding. Never attempt to drive across a
water covered road, as the depth may be too great to allow your
vehicle to cross safely.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A High risk of strong, life-threatening rip currents and rough
surf will remain at area beaches through tonight.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
One or two brief strong lightning storms will be possible across
the local coastal waters and along the coast, mainly from near
Melbourne south. A small threat exists for a storm or two to
produce wind gusts to around 35 knots across the Intracoastal
Waterway and adjacent Atlantic waters.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Small Craft Advisories remain in effect over the Gulf Stream for
seas up to 7 feet. Elsewhere, small craft should exercise caution
for east to northeast winds 15 to 20 knots and seas 4 to 6 feet.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The Saint Johns River at Astor is forecast to remain in Minor
Flood Stage through early next week. Near Geneva above Lake
Harney, the Saint Johns River is forecast to remain in Action
Stage through early next week.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
Deep moisture spreading northward into early next week will allow
for scattered to numerous shower and lightning storm development
each afternoon and early evening. Any repeated rounds of storms or
persistent rain bands will lead to the potential for locally
heavy rainfall of 2 to 4 inches. This will continue the threat
for temporary flooding of roadways and poor drainage areas.

A Moderate risk of numerous and strong life-threatening rip
currents is expected to continue on Sunday and into early next
week at all central Florida Atlantic beaches.

Tropical Storm Ian, currently over the central Caribbean Sea,
is forecast to strengthen to a major hurricane as it turns
northwest then north into the eastern Gulf of Mexico over the
next couple of days. There remains uncertainty on the exact
strength and track of this system. Residents and visitors
should closely monitor the latest forecast, review hurricane
plans and check or gather their hurricane supply kit.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed tonight.
However, spotters should report rainfall amounts of three inches
or greater, or any occurrences of road or property flooding to the
National Weather Service in Melbourne.

...HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH LATE SATURDAY
NIGHT...

* WHAT...Numerous strong, life-threatening rip currents expected
  along with rough surf.

* WHERE...The beaches of Volusia, Brevard, Indian River, Saint
  Lucie and Martin counties.

* WHEN...Through late Saturday night.

* IMPACTS...Rip currents can sweep even the best swimmers away
  from shore into deeper water.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...In addition, gusty north to northeast winds
  building down the coast will produce rough surf and a strong
  southward flowing longshore current along the beaches.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

There is a high risk of rip currents. Swimmers are strongly
advised to stay out of the water until surf conditions improve.

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.

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.
