THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A moderate risk of rip currents exists at all east central Florida
beaches today. In addition, a southward-flowing longshore current
due to northerly winds will also be present. A longshore current
flows parallel to the beach and can be strong enough to knock you
into deeper water. Always swim near a lifeguard and never enter
the ocean alone. Do not try to swim directly against currents.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Poor to hazardous boating conditions exist across the local
Atlantic waters. North winds 15 to 20 knots with gusts around 25
knots are expected. As a result, seas build to 5 to 8 feet. A
Small Craft Advisory is in effect across all of the adjacent
marine legs, except the nearshore Volusia waters, where small
craft should exercise caution.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
Lower relative humidity values today will result in fire
sensitive conditions. However, due to wet fuels from recent
rainfall and winds generally below critical thresholds, the
overall fire weather concern remains low.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
A moderate risk of rip currents is forecast at the local beaches
this week.

Boating conditions will remain poor to hazardous across the Gulf
Stream waters through this week. Cooler conditions are forecast
through early week, especially across the interior with wind chill
values forecast to reach the upper 30s to low 40s Thursday
morning.

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