THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Subtropical Storm Alberto will lift northward over the southeastern
Gulf of Mexico tonight and Sunday, which will start to increase 
moisture and onshore moving showers, especially from the Treasure 
Coast to Cape Canaveral. Low level winds will increase early 
Sunday morning while a more concentrated area of showers and 
isolated storms advances into the Treasure Coast and Okeechobee. 
A slight risk for tornadoes will exist in those areas towards 
sunrise as wind shear increases in the lower levels. 

.FLOOD IMPACT...
An increased coverage of showers and isolated storms after midnight
will start to bring a risk for flooding from the Treasure Coast 
to around Okeechobee. Anyone planning early morning travel on
Sunday should not try to drive through water of unknown depth on
roadways.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Wind gusts around 35 knots may occur over the Atlantic waters
south of Cape Canaveral. Storm motion will increase and be towards
the northwest at 25 to 30 mph by late tonight.

.WATERSPOUT IMPACT...
Low level wind shear will be increasing late tonight, especially 
south of Sebastian Inlet. A low risk for waterspouts exists over
the adjacent Atlantic waters.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Boating conditions will deteriorate as southeast winds increase 
to around 20 knots, which will build seas to around 6 feet.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
As Alberto lifts northward over the eastern Gulf of Mexico, 
abundant tropical moisture will continue across the region and a 
few periods of widespread showers and isolated storms are expected
through at least Memorial Day.

The main hazard will be a possibility of widespread heavy rainfall,
causing flooding to become more of a concern. Dangerous lightning
strikes, gusty winds and an isolated tornado will also be 
concerns as the system moves slowly northward with closest point 
of approach to east central Florida occurring on Sunday. Boating 
and beach conditions will remain hazardous Sunday into Monday. 

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotters are requested to monitor the weather and self activate
if needed.
