metro areas this afternoon. The main threats should consist of heavy

50 mph.

across most of South Florida today.

region. Lightning will be the main hazard.

indices in the 102F to 107F range during the late morning and early
afternoon for the southern interior and Gulf Coast regions.

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Moisture is forecast to be greater than Sunday, so daytime heating
and boundary interactions should yield scattered storms during the
afternoon and evening. With a south to southwest wind flow, there is
a chance for these storms to affect coastal sections, however the
highest coverage should be across the interior. The main hazard will
be lightning strikes, which will be frequent in a few of the
stronger storms. Gusty winds 40 to 45 mph are also possible.

A few stronger storms may produce quick 2 inch downpours in a 60
to 90 minute period, which could cause temporary ponding of water
in urban and poor drainage areas.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A High Rip Current Risk continues today at the beaches of Volusia
and north Brevard counties. A Moderate Rip Current Risk exists at
the remainder of east central Florida beaches.

Dangerous rip currents will be present at the beaches all day,
however the risk will be particularly high between about 2:30 and
8:30 PM, surrounding the time of low tide.

The vast majority of rip current fatalities occur when people
choose to swim at more secluded beaches where there are no
lifeguards present. Only swim in the ocean near a lifeguard, so
they can provide rescue if you get caught in a rip current!

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A few strong storms will have the potential to produce wind gusts
to 35 knots, especially from Interstate 4 to the Volusia County coast
and around Cape Canaveral. Mariners should seek safe harbor if
skies look threatening. Storm motion will be slow but should show
a drift to the northeast.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The Saint Johns River above Lake Harney, near Geneva, and at
Astor both remain at Minor Flood Stage. A River Flood Warning
remains in effect for these areas. The Saint Johns River near
Sanford and Deland remain at Action Stage.

While some slight changes in stage heights are forecast, river
levels are not expected to significantly rise or fall through
the week.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
Scattered to numerous afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms
are expected into mid to late week. The main storm threats will
be frequent cloud to ground lightning strikes, gusty winds and
torrential downpours producing urban, river and poor drainage
flooding.

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