THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated storms may develop across the Treasure Coast later this
afternoon and shift offshore by sunset. Additional isolated storms
will be possible across northern portions of east central Florida
into this evening, with a slight chance for storms continuing
across the rest of east central Florida overnight as a weak front
moves into the region. Any storms that develop could become
strong, with occasional to frequent lightning strikes, strong
gusts to 40 to 45 mph, small hail, and brief heavy downpours being
the main threats.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A Moderate risk of rip currents continues at all central Florida
Atlantic beaches. Always swim near a lifeguard, and never swim
alone.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Any isolated storms that develop and shift offshore of the
Treasure Coast later this afternoon and offshore the east central
Florida coast into tonight will be capable of producing wind gusts
near or in excess of 35 knots.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Small craft should exercise caution over the Treasure Coast waters
and over the offshore waters of Brevard County from this afternoon
into this evening, as southerly winds increase up to 15 to 20
knots.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
Very sensitive fire weather conditions will exist across the area
into this afternoon, as breezy west to southwest winds and lower
minimum relative humidity values in the upper 30s to low 40s will
exist over much of the area.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
Scattered showers and isolated storms will continue across the
area into Monday as the frontal boundary pushes south across
central Florida. A few stronger storms will be possible, mainly
across Okeechobee County and the Treasure Coast into the
afternoon. The main storm threats will be frequent lightning
strikes, strong wind gusts up to 40 to 50 mph, small hail, and
locally heavy downpours. However, an isolated severe storm can not
be ruled out, producing localized damaging wind gusts to 60 mph
and hail up to an inch in diameter.

Increasing northerly winds behind the front will build seas,
leading to deteriorating boating conditions, becoming poor to
hazardous behind the front from Monday afternoon through Tuesday.

Drier air moving in behind the front will again lead to sensitive
fire weather conditions from Tuesday into late week.

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