THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Scattered lightning storms are expected to develop once again across 
east central Florida, along local sea and lake breeze boundaries. 
The greatest coverage will occur west of Interstate 95 and the Saint 
Johns River, with numerous storms possible across Lake County during 
the late afternoon. A few storms may linger an hour or so after 
sunset over the north interior.

Today's storms will move toward the north at around 10 MPH, and be
capable of producing frequent cloud to ground lightning, wind gusts
to around 50 mph and small hail. Move indoors to safety at the
first sign of threatening skies, or if you hear thunder.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
Locally heavy rain will occur over portions of the interior counties 
resulting in one to three inches in a 60 to 90 minute period in a 
few areas. Temporary flooding of some roads and low lying areas will 
be possible.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Storms will also be capable of producing wind gusts of 35 knots or 
greater on the inland lakes. This threat will be highest over the 
interior counties as well as Volusia County and the adjacent 
Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic waters just offshore.

.EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACT...
Afternoon heat indices will top 100 degrees again across east
central Florida, and be as high as 105 degrees in some locations.
If you will be engaging in any outdoor activity today, be sure to
remain hydrated and take frequent rest breaks out of the sun,
preferably in an air conditions location.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
The threat for storms will increase from Tuesday through the end
of the week as winds become more south and then southwesterly,
favoring the eastern side of the peninsula for highest coverage of
showers and storms. The main threat will be cloud to ground
lightning strikes, gusty winds, and ponding of water on roadways 
from heavy downpours.

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