THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated lightning storms will continue to be possible this
evening into the the overnight hours. This will be mainly for
areas closer to the east coast with the highest potential across
the Treasure Coast and over the adjacent Atlantic waters. Occasional
lightning strikes and heavy downpours will be the main impacts.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Isolated lightning storms that develop will be capable of
producing wind gusts of 30 to 35 knots mainly over the local
Atlantic coastal waters and toward the Intracoastal Waterway.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
The threat for locally heavy rainfall remains this evening and
tonight across the Treasure Coast, especially for Martin and Saint
Lucie counties. Showers and storms may produce a quick half to
one inch of rainfall, but areas along the immediate Martin and
Saint Lucie coasts could see localized higher amounts upwards of
two to three inches. This could cause temporary ponding of water
on roads and in poor drainage areas. These areas remain the most
susceptible to additional temporary inundation ponding of water in
low areas due to recent heavy rain events.

.COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
Long period swells generated by Hurricane Epsilon will continue to
reach the local Atlantic waters keeping beach conditions
hazardous.  Minor beach erosion will also be possible around the
time of high tide which will occur between 330 AM and 430 AM
tonight.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Although things are starting to improve, poor to hazardous
boating conditions will persist into tonight. Small craft should
exercise caution for seas up to 6 feet in the nearshore waters,
and the Small Craft Advisory remains in effect beyond 20 nautical
miles offshore for seas up to 7 feet.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
Seas will remain poor for small craft operators through Sunday due
to remaining swells from distant Hurricane Epsilon. A high risk
of rip currents is anticipated to last through at least Sunday.

Scattered to numerous showers and isolated storms are expected
on Sunday, and there is potential for locally heavy rainfall
across the Treasure Coast through Sunday night. Lower coverage of
showers and storms is then expected into midweek.

The latest forecast has the Saint Johns River at Astor remaining
in Minor Flood Stage with levels remaining nearly steady or slowly
diminishing over the next several days. Elsewhere, the Saint
Johns River at Sanford and near Lake Harney is forecast to stay
within Action Stage, while at DeLand the river is forecast to stay
just below Action Stage through early next week before slowly
decreasing. Refer to daily Flood Statements and River Statements
from NWS Melbourne for the latest river levels and forecasts.

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

...FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR THE ATLANTIC METROS...
...DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS EXPECTED ALONG THE ATLANTIC BEACHES...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT

Rip Currents: There is a high risk of Rip Currents along the Atlantic
beaches.

Flooding: The stronger showers and thunderstorms could contain
periods of heavy rainfall which may lead to localized flooding,
especially along east coast metro and coastal areas. A Flood Watch
remains in effect.

Thunderstorms: A few thunderstorms are possible this evening, some
may become strong. The primary hazards are lightning, gusty winds,
and urban flooding.

Wind: Gusty winds in excess of 20 to 25 knots are possible across
the South Florida waters with showers and thunderstorms.

Waterspouts: There is a slight chance of waterspouts over the South
Florida waters, mainly associated with thunderstorms and gusty
showers.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

A trough of low pressure in the western Caribbean is being monitored
by the National Hurricane Center for potential tropical development
over the next several days. This feature could provide for active
periods of showers and thunderstorms through early week. Flooding is
the primary concern.

The high risk of rip currents will continue over the Atlantic
beaches through Wednesday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Widespread spotter activation is not anticipated. However,
individual spotters especially east coast metro areas are encouraged
to report high wind, waterspouts, and flooding to the National
Weather Service forecast office in Miami. Please relay any
information about observed severe weather to the NWS while following
all local, state, and CDC guidelines.
