THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Ample moisture will generate numerous showers and embedded
isolated lightning storms today, capable of producing locally
heavy rain, cloud to ground lightning strikes, and wind gusts
between 30 to 40 mph. The greatest coverage is expected over the
Treasure Coast early this morning, before spreading to the northwest
and focusing across the interior this afternoon.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Additional showers and isolated thunderstorms capable of producing
locally heavy rainfall are forecast, particularly along the
Treasure Coast this morning. The threat of locally heavy rainfall
will spread to the north and west late this morning and this
afternoon. Torrential downpours will be capable of producing 1 to
2 inches of rain in a short 60 to 90 minute period. This will
likely cause some temporary inundation of roads and other poor
drainage areas, especially in locations which have received heavy
rainfall over the past several days.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Southeast winds will result in a northward flowing current in the
surf zone again today. Longshore currents can be strong enough to
knock you off the sandbar and into deeper water. Always swim near
a lifeguard and never try to swim directly against currents that
occur at the beaches.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Wind gusts of 30 to 40 knots will be possible over the nearshore
Atlantic, Intracoastal Waterway, and on inland lakes. Boaters
should be on the lookout for storms approaching from the south
and move to safe harbor if storms threaten.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Southeast winds between 15 to 20 knots will generate choppy seas
up to 6 feet well offshore. Small craft operators should exercise
caution.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
Scattered to numerous afternoon and evening showers and
thunderstorms are forecast to continue into next week, with
locally heavy rainfall, dangerous cloud to ground lightning
strikes, and gusty winds the primary threats.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Formal spotter activation is not anticipated today; however,
storm spotters are still requested to submit rainfall reports of
2 inches or more to the National Weather Service in Melbourne.
