THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A powerful storm system transiting the Gulf Coast will trigger
numerous showers and thunderstorms over the eastern Gulf of Mexico
today. A squall line is expected to cross portions of the central
peninsula this afternoon and evening, bringing a threat for
strong to potentially severe thunderstorms to Lake County and the
Interstate 4 corridor between about 4:00 and 8:00 pm. Storms will
move rapidly northeast at 40 mph and have the potential to produce
damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph, deadly cloud to ground lightning,
and torrential downpours of 1 to 2 inches. The environment will
also be favorable for isolated tornadoes. A few strong storms
with gusty winds could develop overnight farther south toward
Osceola, Brevard, and Okeechobee counties as well as the Treasure
Coast.

Residents and visitors within east central Florida should monitor
forecast updates and remain weather aware this afternoon and
evening. Ensure you have a severe weather plan in place that
includes multiple ways to receive timely weather warnings.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Strong wind gusts of 35 to 45 knots may accompany a line of
showers and embedded thunderstorms late this afternoon and
evening as it pushes over the Interstate 4 corridor and offshore
Brevard and Osceola counties. Additional storms with gusty winds
may develop over the Treasure Coast overnight.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the offshore waters where
south to southeast winds near 20 knots will build seas to 6 to 8
feet north of Fort Pierce. Small craft should exercise caution
near shore as winds increase to 15 to 20 knots here.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
Lingering moisture will result in a small chance for lightning
storms through early Saturday afternoon.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotters are requested to monitor the weather and self activate
if needed.

.NOW...

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

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

...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
tornadoes.

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.
