...Early Morning Light Rain and Sprinkles for North Lake and
Volusia Counties...

...Slight Risk for Strong To Severe Storms Later Today from I-4

...A Few Strong Storms Possible Tonight Farther South...

At 400 AM, doppler radars across Florida showed a large area of
rain with embedded thunderstorms covering the northeast Gulf of
Mexico and extending across north Florida. This area was moving
northeast at around 30 to 40 MPH, and a few showers or sprinkles
along its southern edge will brush Lake and northern Volusia
Counties. However little or no measurable rainfall is expected
through sunrise.

A powerful storm system near the Gulf Coast will move east-
northeast across the southeast U.S. today and tonight. Increasing
moisture and instability ahead of the system will overspread east
central Florida throughout the day. While clouds will become
widespread across much of the region this afternoon, showers and
storms are expected to redevelop and move across areas from around
the Interstate 4 corridor northward, between about 400 and 800 PM.

Due to strengthening low level winds, any storms which form later
today will move rapidly northeast at 40 to 50 MPH, and will have
the potential to produce strong wind gusts in excess of 50 MPH,
deadly cloud to ground lightning, and torrential downpours of 1 to
2 inches. The environment will also be favorable for isolated

Farther south, showers will be isolated to scattered over Osceola
and Brevard County, with little or no activity expected for the
Lake Okeechobee and Treasure Coast regions until after sunset.

Strong storms may redevelop after sunset from around I-4 southward
with a few strong storms possible, especially from Osceola County
eastward across the Space Coast.
