THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A brisk Southeast breeze along with ocean conditions will create
a MODERATE rip current threat along area beaches. Additionally,
a strong northward flowing longshore current will be present
within the surf zone. The threat for rip currents will be highest
this afternoon due to tidal effects.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don`t swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help. Check with beach patrol for
local conditions and never swim alone.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Southeast winds 15 to 25 knots will generate seas of 5 to 7 feet
nearshore and up to 9 feet offshore. A Small Craft Advisory is in
effect for all of the waters of east central Florida into Thursday.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
Poor to hazardous marine conditions are expected to continue
through late week as winds remain elevated ahead of and behind
a cold front that will move through the area on Thursday. The
front will also bring a threat for isolated strong thunderstorms
capable of producing cloud to ground lightning strikes and brief
gusty winds. A Marginal Risk of severe thunderstorms is in effect
for portions of central Florida early Thursday.

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