.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated lightning storms are expected to develop today along the

Lightning storms that develop this afternoon along the sea breeze
will be capable of producing wind gusts to around 35 knots over

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
Rain chances rapidly increase Friday and are forecast to remain
high through the weekend and possibly into early next week.
Numerous to widespread showers and lightning storms are forecast
Friday and Saturday, with scattered storms Sunday and Monday.

Locally heavy rainfall is possible on Friday, with widespread
rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches, and locally higher amounts up

forecast to reach the mid to upper 90s on Friday.

The rip current threat will be moderate at the central Florida
