THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Deep moisture remains in place across east central Florida this
morning. As temperatures heat up into the upper 80s and lower 90s
again today, the very moist air mass will produce numerous showers
and lightning storms a little inland from the coast from late
morning to early afternoon. From mid afternoon through early
evening, much higher storm coverage will shift into the interior.

Today`s storms will move slowly north to northeast at 5 to 10 mph,
and will be capable of producing frequent cloud to ground lightning
strikes, torrential downpours of 1 to 3 inches, and wind gusts to
around 40 mph. Temporary inundation of roads and other poorly
drained low-lying spots is expected in some areas today. Move
indoors to safety at the first sign of threatening skies, or if
you hear thunder. If you encounter torrential rainfall while out
driving, never attempt to drive across water covered roadways.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
There will be a moderate risk for life-threatening rip currents
at the central Florida Atlantic beaches once again today. While
rips will be present all day, the threat will be highest between
130 PM and 730 PM due to tidal effects. To reduce your chance of
being caught in the seaward pull of a rip current, swim only
within sight of a lifeguard, and never swim alone, while following
social distancing guidelines.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Wind gusts to around 35 knots are expected in some strong storms
today, mainly across inland lakes, but also near the Intracoastal
and near shore Atlantic waters of Volusia and Brevard Counties.
Move quickly to safe harbor in advance of any strong storms today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
Above normal coverage of showers and lightning storms is expected
to continue through this weekend and well into next week. The
main storm threats will continue to be frequent cloud to ground
lightning strikes, gusty winds, and torrential downpours. The risk
for dangerous rip currents will also remain moderate.

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