THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
THERE WERE 3 OCEAN DEATHS...SEVERAL NEAR DROWNINGS AND HUNDREDS OF
RESCUES AT EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA BEACHES ON SUNDAY AND MONDAY.
THERE WILL BE LITTLE CHANGE IN THE OCEAN CONDITIONS TODAY...SO THE
SURF ZONE THREAT WILL BE HIGH DUE TO DANGEROUS BREAKING WAVES AND
LIFE THREATENING RIP CURRENTS.

IF YOU ARE KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT OCEAN DANGERS...MAKE SURE YOU
EXPLAIN THE POWER OF ROUGH SURF AND RIP CURRENTS TO THOSE WHO ARE
UNAWARE.

ABOVE ALL ELSE...IF YOU MUST ENTER INTO THE OCEAN DURING THESE
DANGEROUS SURF ZONE CONDITIONS...DO SO ONLY NEAR A LIFEGUARD!

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
ADEQUATE MOISTURE FOR ISOLATED SHOWERS AND STORMS SHOULD LINGER
DURING DAYTIME HEATING...MAINLY IN LAKE COUNTY AND WESTERN ORANGE
COUNTY. IF ANY STORMS FORM...THE MAIN THREAT WILL BE OCCASIONAL
LIGHTNING STRIKES. MOVEMENT WILL BE TOWARDS THE WEST AROUND 10
MPH.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
INCREASINGLY DRY VEGETATION OVER MOST OF THE AREA AND OCCASIONALLY
BREEZY EASTERLY WINDS WILL RESULT IN A MODERATE THREAT FOR
WILDFIRE SPREAD.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
EASTERLY WINDS WILL LIKELY KEEP BEACH CONDITIONS HAZARDOUS WITH
DANGEROUS SURF AND LIFE-THREATENING RIP CURRENTS INTO NEXT WEEKEND.

A DRIER AIR MASS WILL INHIBIT THUNDERSTORMS UNTIL LATE WEEK WHEN
MOISTURE IS FORECAST TO INCREASE.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY.
