THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated to scattered thunderstorm are forecast to develop this
afternoon from Melbourne to Lake Kissimme southward, and isolated
thunderstorms to the north, in the late afternoon and evening. Storm
motion will be to the east at 5 to 10 mph. Stronger storms will be
capable of gusty winds up to 50 mph, frequent cloud to ground
lightning, and periods of heavy rainfall. Make sure to move indoors
at the first sign of threatening weather.

.EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACT...
Above normal temperatures will result in peak heat indices between
102 and 107 over much of east central Florida. If working or
recreating outdoors, take frequent breaks out of the sun and drink
plenty of water.


.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A moderate risk of life-threatening rip currents continues at all
east central Florida beaches today. Always swim near a lifeguard and
never swim alone.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Isolated to scattered lightning storms will develop across the
interior and coastal areas this afternoon and into the evening,
mainly from south of a line from Melbourne to Lake Kissimmee.
Stronger storms will have the potential to produce wind gusts near
or in excess of 34 knots over inland lakes, the intracoastal waters,
and the Atlantic waters. Boaters should be prepared to seek safe
harbour in advance of any approaching storms.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...
Daily isolated to scattered afternoon lightning storms are expected
through the week. Locally stronger storms will produce gusty winds
and frequent lightning strikes. Heavy rainfall will lead to a daily
threat for localized flooding this week.

A moderate risk of dangerous rip currents will be possible at the
beaches this weekend.

Afternoon peak heat indices expected to reach between 102 and 107
the next few days.
.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed today and tonight.
