THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
The inland moving sea breeze should spark isolated lightning
storms over Volusia county this afternoon with the best chance
late this afternoon and early this evening over the interior
counties, including Lake, Orange, Seminole and northwest Osceola.
A few storms will have the potential to become strong, producing
frequent lightning strikes, strong wind gusts up to 45 mph, small
hail, and locally heavy rainfall. Storm motion should be generally
toward the east or southeast with propagation southward along
boundaries possible.

.COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
High astronomical tides will produce above normal water levels
around the time of high tide this evening between 9 PM and 11 PM.
This may cause minor inundation of low lying properties near
inlets, nearby areas along the Intracoastal Waterway, and adjacent
canals.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A Moderate risk of life threatening rip currents exists at the
beaches of east central Florida. To reduce your risk of becoming
caught in the seaward pull of a rip current, swim only within
sight of a lifeguard, and never enter the ocean alone.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Lightning storms late this afternoon and early this evening will
be capable of producing wind gusts of 35 to 40 knots over inland
lakes such as Lake George, to Lake Apopka and Lake Toho.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
River levels along the Saint Johns River at Astor are forecast to
remain near Action Stage of 2.0 feet before gradually decreasing
below Action Stage late this week.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
Afternoon heat index values are forecast to reach the mid to
upper 90s from mid to late week. Low rain chances are expected
Wednesday through Thursday, but isolated afternoon storms will
still be possible over the interior counties.

The rip current threat will remain Moderate at all central
Florida Atlantic beaches this week.

Deep moisture will lift northward across the area Friday into the
weekend and bring much higher coverage of rain and storms.

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