THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
A Flood Watch is in effect for Martin, Saint Lucie, Indian River,
Okeechobee, Brevard, Osceola, Orange and Seminole Counties through
Tuesday morning. Bands of heavy rainfall will move across east
central Florida today and tonight with localized flooding possible.

Expect widespread rainfall amounts of 4 to 6 inches with isolated
amounts up to 8 to 10 inches possible along the Treasure Coast
and into Brevard and Osceola Counties. In Orange and Seminole
Counties, expect widespread amounts of 2 to 4 inches with isolated
amounts up to 6 inches possible.

Any persistent heavy rainfall could lead to flooding of roadways,
low-lying and poor drainage areas, and quick rises of water in
retention ponds, culverts, and canals.

Remember, Turn Around Don`t Drown! It is not safe to drive a
vehicle across a flooded road. If you come across a flooded
roadway, find another route.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Numerous showers and scattered lightning storms will move across
the region today with the primary threat being occasional cloud to
ground lightning strikes. A couple of tornadoes are possible as
well with some of the stronger storms. This threat will be highest
along the coast as storms move onshore.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
There is a high risk of rip currents at all east central Florida
beaches today. Rip currents can sweep even the best swimmers away
from shore into deeper water. Think twice about entering the surf
today. If you choose to do so, swim near a lifeguard.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Isolated to scattered thunderstorms capable of producing wind
gusts up to 35 knots will move over east central Florida and the
adjacent Atlantic waters through this evening.

.WATERSPOUT IMPACT...
Conditions are favorable for waterspouts to develop as showers and
thunderstorms move onshore through this evening. The threat will
be highest south of the Cape.

.HIGH WIND IMPACT...
East winds will increase to 20 to 25 mph with higher gusts this
evening, mostly along the barrier islands and Intracoastal
Waterways of Volusia and Brevard Counties.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Poor to hazardous boating conditions developing today. East to
southeast winds up 15 to 20 knots will increase to 20 to 25 knots
this afternoon, with the strongest winds north of Sebastian
Inlets. Seas build to 4 to 6 feet today, then build up to 6 to 8
feet by this evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will continue each
afternoon this week, with heavy rainfall, localized flooding, and
deadly cloud to ground lightning storms as the main threats.

The risk of rip currents will be moderate to high on Tuesday, then
moderate for the remainder of the week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotters are requested to monitor the weather and self activate
if needed. Report rainfall totals greater than 3 inches and any
flooding impacts to the National Weather Service in Melbourne.
