THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Scattered lightning storms are expected to form along the east
and west coast sea breezes early this afternoon with highest
coverage then transitioning inland. Frequent lightning and
torrential downpours will accompany storms today, but wind gusts
of 40 to 50 mph will be possible in stronger storms. Storm motion
today will be generally toward the northeast at 5 to 10 mph north
of Kissimmee to Melbourne. Farther south, storm motion will be
slower and more erratic.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Slower-moving lightning storms today will be capable of producing
a quick 1 to 2 inches of rainfall, especially where multiple
boundaries interact. This on top of the well-above normal rainfall
received lately could result in more localized flooding of urban
and poor drainage areas and ponding of water on roadways. Never
drive into water-covered roads.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Storms today will be capable of producing wind gusts above 35 knots
over the nearshore Atlantic waters and Intracoastal Waterway
early this afternoon along the sea breeze and then across inland
lakes over the interior through this evening. A few storms may
push back toward the coast and offshore late this afternoon and
evening, mainly north of Sebastian Inlet.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The Saint Johns River near Geneva above Lake Harney is forecast to
reach action stage late this evening into tonight with a slow
increase in levels through this week.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
Slightly lower coverage of lightning storms is expected on Monday
before coverage increases on Tuesday and Wednesday. Scattered
storms are then forecast each afternoon through late week with
the higher coverage favoring interior locations.

River levels along the Saint Johns River near Geneva will
continue to slowly rise and remain above action stage through this
week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed this afternoon and tonight.
However, spotters are requested to report any rainfall amounts in
excess of two inches, or any flooding.
