THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated lightning storms will be possible this afternoon and
tonight, mainly along the Treasure Coast. Gusty winds up to 30
mph, occasional lightning strikes and moderate to heavy rainfall
will be the main impacts as showers and storms move westward at 10
to 15 mph.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Moderate to heavy rainfall is expected to start later this evening
and overnight across the Treasure Coast, especially for Martin and
St Lucie counties. These showers and storms may produce a quick
quarter inch to one inch of rainfall, which could cause temporary
ponding of water on roads and in poor drainage areas. These areas
remain the most susceptible to additional temporary inundation
ponding of water in low areas due to recent heavy rain events.

.COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
Long period swells generated by Hurricane Epsilon will continue to
reach the local Atlantic waters keeping beach conditions
hazardous with dangerous breaking waves of 5 to 7 feet and rough
surf. Minor beach erosion will also be possible around the time of
high tide which will occur between 3 PM and 4 PM and 330 AM and
430 AM tonight.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
There will continue to be a High risk of rip currents at all east
central Florida beaches. While the threat for rip currents will
be present all day, it will be highest during the hours surrounding
low tide. Rough surf will also continue. Use extreme caution at
the beach and entering the surf is highly discouraged.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Seas of 6 to 9 feet in the nearshore waters and 8 to 10 feet in
the offshore waters are expected this morning before starting to
slowly subside this afternoon and tonight. A Small Craft Advisory
remains in effect for all the local Atlantic waters.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The latest forecast has the Saint Johns River at Astor lingering
just below Moderate Flood Stage through the weekend before slowly
decreasing. Elsewhere, the Saint Johns River at Sanford and near
Lake Harney is forecast to stay within Action Stage, while at
DeLand the river is forecast to stay just below Action Stage
through early next week before slowly decreasing. Refer to daily
Flood Statements and River Statements from NWS Melbourne for the
latest river levels and forecasts.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
Seas will remain hazardous for small craft operators over the
weekend due to swells from distant Hurricane Epsilon. A high risk
of rip currents is anticipated to last through at least the
weekend.

Scattered showers and isolated storms are expected each day into
this weekend, and there is potential for locally heavy rainfall
across the Treasure Coast starting late Saturday night or early
Sunday morning into the Monday timeframe.

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