THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Deep layer southwest flow coupled with increased moisture across
the northern half of Florida will lead to scattered to numerous
showers and lightning storm across east central Florida today,
along and ahead of the west coast sea breeze as it quickly moves
from west to east across the Florida peninsula. Once again, the
highest coverage is expected near and north of the Interstate-4
corridor this afternoon.

Storm motion today will be to the east-northeast at 20 to 25 MPH.
The main storm threats will be frequent cloud to ground lightning,
wind gusts of 40 to 45 mph, and torrential downpours of up to 1
to 2 inches in a 60 to 90 minute period, which may cause ponding
of water in urban and other poorly drained, low lying areas. Move
indoors to safety at the first sign of threatening skies, or if
you hear thunder.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Afternoon storms will be capable of producing wind gusts of 35
knots or greater on area lakes, as well as the intracoastal and
near shore Atlantic waters. The highest threat will be from Lake
Kissimmee and Cape Canaveral northward. Mariners should watch for
storms quickly approaching from the west.

.EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACT...
Afternoon heat indices between 100 and 105 degrees are expected
from Lake Kissimmee and Cape Canaveral southward to Okeechobee
and Tequesta. If working outside or engaging in any outdoor
activity, be sure to remain well hydrated, and take frequent rest
breaks.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Weather and ocean conditions will lead to a moderate threat for
dangerous rip currents at area beaches today.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The Saint Johns River above Lake Harney, near Geneva, and at Astor
both remain at or near Minor Flood Stage. A River Flood Warning
remains in effect for these areas. The Saint Johns River near
Sanford and Deland remain at or above Action Stage.

While some slight changes in stage heights are forecast, river
levels are not expected to significantly rise or fall through this
weekend.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
Scattered to numerous afternoon and evening showers and
thunderstorms are expected into early next week. The main storm
threats will be frequent lightning strikes, gusty winds and
torrential downpours producing urban, river, and poor drainage
flooding.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed today.
