THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENTS...
Swells of 1 to 2 feet with an increased wave period will push 
slightly larger amounts of surf onto the beaches. As a result, 
there is a moderate risk of rip currents today, particularly 
during times with the outgoing tide. Always swim within sight of a
lifeguard.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Small craft should exercise caution in the Gulf Stream today 
into tonight. Winds will be north up to 15 knots with combined 
seas 5 to 6 feet. 

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
Wind and sea conditions will deteriorate late this weekend as a 
strong cold front approaches and then moves through east central 
Florida by late Sunday or Sunday night. Much colder air will surge
south across the region on strong, breezy northwest to north winds
late Sunday through Monday. This will bring hazardous winds and
building seas over the local Atlantic, and cold temperatures and 
low wind chills over land Sunday and Monday nights.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation is not anticipated today.
