THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDFLOW WILL ALLOW THE WEST COAST SEA
BREEZE TO PUSH ACROSS CENTRAL FLORIDA WHILE DELAYING THE ONSET OF
THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE TO THE LATE AFTERNOON. MID AFTERNOON
LIGHTNING STORMS SHOULD START TO DEVELOP AND TRACK TO THE EAST
NORTHEAST AT 15 MPH. ISOLATED STRONG STORMS ALONG THE COASTAL
AREAS OF EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA NORTH OF CAPE CANAVERAL IN THE LATE
AFTERNOON SHOULD SPREAD TO THE SOUTH THE REST OF THE AFTERNOON
INTO THE EARLY EVENING.

PRIMARY HAZARDS WILL BE CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES...LOCALLY
HEAVY RAIN AND WIND GUSTS TO 40 MPH. AS SOME STORMS NEAR THE OCEAN
AND INTERACT WITH THE SEA BREEZE THEY WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO
BECOME STRONG...PRODUCING WIND GUSTS TO 50 MPH...FREQUENT
LIGHTNING STRIKES AND SMALL HAIL FROM LATE AFTERNOON INTO EARLY
EVENING.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
OCEAN SWELL WILL PRODUCE A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS AT AREA
BEACHES TODAY. THE RIP CURRENTS SHOULD BE AT THEIR STRONGEST
DURING THE AFTERNOON OUTGOING TIDE. DO NOT SWIM ALONE AND SWIM
NEAR A LIFE GUARD. CHECK WITH LIFE GUARDS CONCERNING SURF

WIND GUSTS TO 35 TO 40 KNOTS AND FREQUENT LIGHTNING.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
THE CHANCE FOR AFTERNOON LIGHTNING STORMS WILL REMAIN ABOVE ON

DEVELOP OVER EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA ON MONDAY. SUFFICIENT MOISTURE
REMAINING IN PLACE OVER EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA WILL ALLOW FOR STORMSTO
BE IN THE FORECAST DAILY THIS UPCOMING WEEK.
