THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY OVER NORTH FLORIDA WILL REACH CENTRAL
FLORIDA THIS EVENING BEFORE STALLING OVERNIGHT NEAR SANFORD AND
CAPE CANAVERAL. MOISTURE AHEAD OF THIS BOUNDARY WILL LEAD TO
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND LIGHTNING STORMS MAINLY DURING THE
AFTERNOON. WHILE RAIN CHANCES WILL BE SLIGHTLY HIGHER NORTH OF
ORLANDO AND TITUSVILLE...THERE APPEARS TO BE A LITTLE HIGHER
CHANCE FOR LIGHTNING TO THE SOUTH OF THIS LINE AS LESS CLOUDS WILL
ALLOW FOR BETTER SURFACE HEATING AND GREATER INSTABILITY DURING
THE AFTERNOON.

A FEW STRONG STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE...WITH WIND GUSTS TO AROUND
40 MPH...FREQUENT LIGHTNING AND TORRENTIAL DOWNPOURS THE PRIMARY
THREATS. ANY STORMS WHICH FORM TODAY WILL MOVE RAPIDLY EASTWARD
AT 25 TO 3O MPH. BE WARY OF STORMS APPROACHING RAPIDLY FROM THE
WEST TODAY.

.HIGH WIND IMPACT...
GUSTY WEST WINDS OF 15 TO 20 MPH WITH OCCASIONAL GUSTS TO NEAR 30
MPH WILL OCCUR THROUGH DUSK. THE GUSTY CONDITIONS WILL BE CAPABLE
OF TOSSING SMALL UNSECURED ITEMS.

.EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACT...
HEAT INDEX READINGS IN THE MID TO UPPER 90S ARE FORECAST DUE TO
THE STRONG WEST WINDS AND ONLY LIMITED CLOUD COVER AT TIMES. MAKE
SURE TO TAKE FREQUENT REST BREAKS IF OUTDOORS FOR LONG PERIODS AS
WELL AS WEARING A HEAD COVERING AND DRINKING WATER.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL PRODUCE A MODERATE THREAT FOR
RIP CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. THE THREAT WILL BE HIGHEST
THROUGH 1 PM DUE TO TIDAL EFFECTS.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A FEW STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCALLY HIGHER WINDS
AND WAVES ON AREA LAKES...THE INTRACOASTAL AND NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC
WATERS. BOATERS SHOULD BE ALERT FOR STORMS THAT MAY APPROACH
RAPIDLY FROM THE WEST AT ABOUT 25 TO 30 KNOTS.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
SMALL CRAFT SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION AWAY FROM THE IMMEDIATE COAST
DUE TO GUSTY WEST WINDS AND CHOPPY SEAS...ESPECIALLY WELL BEYOND
THE ATLANTIC COAST.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
RAIN CHANCES WILL REMAIN HIGH TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY AS LOW
PRESSURE DEVELOPS ALONG THE STALLED BOUNDARY OVER THE NORTHEAST
GULF OF MEXICO...THEN MOVES EAST ACROSS THE NORTHERN GULF AND
SOUTHEASTERN U.S. A FEW STRONG STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE BOTH DAYS.
IN ADDITION...WINDS AND SEAS WILL INCREASE TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH
EARLY THURSDAY AHEAD OF AND BEHIND A COOL FRONT...ASSOCIATED WITH
THE LOW...THAT WILL PUSH THROUGH THE REGION.
