THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Boating conditions will rapidly deteriorate tonight in the Atlantic
Atlantic waters offshore Volusia County. Northeast winds will
increase after sunset, reaching 20 to 25 knots with gusts to Gale
Force after midnight. Seas will build rapidly to 7 to 10 feet
offshore and 6 to 8 feet nearshore. Late this evening, a Small Craft
Advisory goes into effect for the nearshore Volusia waters and a
Gale Warning will go into effect for the Volusia offshore waters,
beyond 20 miles.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
The cold front that will bring the rapid increase in winds, seas and
surf offshore Volusia County is expected to slow down as it reaches
central Florida. Increasing moisture and winds are expected to focus
across Volusia County, and possibly adjacent northern sections of
Lake and Brevard Counties as well. Through early Wednesday morning,
rainfall amounts one inch and an inch and a half will be possible,
with localized amounts of 2 to 4 inches in isolated barrier island
locations of northeast Volusia County. This could cause local urban
and poor drainage flooding and ponding of water on local roadways.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
Very dangerous boating and beach conditions will develop down the
Florida east coast Wednesday. North to Northeast winds will
increase behind a cold front, with speeds of 20 to 25 knots
gusting to Gale Force. This will cause seas to build rapidly,
reaching heights of 11 to 14 feet over the open Atlantic waters
Wednesday through Thursday.

Along the coast, large breaking waves of 7 to 9 feet will produce
rough, pounding surf and numerous strong rip currents, posing a
significant danger to persons who consider entering the ocean.
Minor coastal flooding and minor to moderate beach erosion will be
possible around times of high tide. The main High tides of
concern will occur Wednesday between 1:30 and 2:00 PM, Thursday
morning around 2:30 AM, and again in the afternoon between 2:30
and 3:00 PM.

Although winds will decrease Friday, seas and surf will be much
slower to subside so hazardous boating and beach conditions will
persist through at least the end of the work week.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Formal spotter activation will not be needed tonight. Spotters in
Volusia County are asked to relay any reports of rainfall amounts
two inches or greater late tonight and early Wednesday morning to
the National Weather Service in Melbourne.
