THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.HIGH WIND IMPACT...
East winds will increase 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 30 mph
along the Indian River, Saint Lucie and Martin coasts late this
morning through the afternoon.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Incoming long period Northeast swells will produce a High Risk of
life threatening rip currents. Breezy east winds will also produce
rough surf. Always swim near a lifeguard. If no lifeguard is
present, think twice about entering the surf. Be aware that beach
closures are in effect for some communities.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
A combination of long period Northeast swells and breezy east
winds 15 to 20 knots will produce combined seas of 6 to 8 feet,
prompting a Small Craft Advisory for most of the local Atlantic
waters. Even along the Volusia coast, where winds and seas will be
slightly lower, small craft should exercise caution for hazardous
conditions near inlets due to the swells.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
Long period Northeast swells will maintain a High Risk of rip
currents on Tuesday along with hazardous conditions near inlets
for small craft.

Breezy and gusty west winds will bring above normal temperatures
Wednesday and Thursday and result in a High fire weather danger.

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