THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Moderate to large northeast swells will maintain a high risk for
dangerous rip currents in the central Florida Atlantic surf zone
today. While rip currents will be present all day, the risk will
be highest between 8 AM this morning and 2 PM this afternoon due
to tidal effects.

.COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
Rough surf with breaking waves as high as 4 to 6 feet will remain
a hazard in the surf zone today. Large breakers can knock even the
strongest swimmers down and make them even more susceptible to
becoming caught in the seaward pull of a rip current. Entering the
ocean is not recommended again today due to the combination of
rough surf and strong rip currents.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Conditions for small craft operation will remain poor to hazardous
for small craft operation over the local Atlantic, especially this
morning. East-northeast winds 15 to 20 knots will maintain seas up
to 7 feet, mainly well offshore from Cape Canaveral southward, and
closer to shore south of Sebastian Inlet.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
Boating conditions will remain poor for small craft operation
through late week. The threat for numerous strong, dangerous rip
currents will remain elevated to at least Moderate into next
weekend.


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