THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Scattered to numerous showers and storms are forecast across the
area this afternoon and evening, especially south of Orlando.
Some stronger storms will be possible along and north of the I-4
corridor, producing frequent lightning strikes, gusty winds to
around 50 mph, and locally heavy rainfall of 1 to 3 inches.

.EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACT...
Highs in the low to mid 90s and humid conditions will produce
peak heat index values of 103 to 107 this afternoon. This will
lead to a Moderate to Major Heat Risk across the area today.
Those spending extended periods of time outside are encouraged to
protect themselves from the sun and the heat by taking frequent
breaks in the shade or an air conditioned building and remaining
well hydrated.

.RIP CURRENT AND SURF IMPACT...
A Moderate Risk of rip currents will exist at all east central
Florida beaches today. Always swim near a lifeguard and never
enter the ocean alone.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
Rain chances look to remain high on Tuesday, with scattered to
numerous lightning storms possible in the afternoon and evening.
Greatest coverage will be across the interior, where boundary
collisions between the sea breeze and outflow boundaries are
forecast to occur. Storms will be capable of producing frequent
lightning strikes, gusty winds, and locally heavy rainfall. Drier
air mid to late week looks to reduce chances slightly, but
scattered showers and storms will remain possible.

Hot and humid conditions will continue through the week, with
highs in the low to mid 90s and peak heat index values around 102
to 107. This will continue to produce a Moderate to Major Heat
Risk across east central Florida.

At least a Moderate risk of dangerous rip currents will continue at
area beaches through early this week.

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