THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
An approaching front across northern portions of east central
Florida into late afternoon will allow for a slight chance of late
afternoon lightning storms generally west of Interstate 4 corridor.
A brief heavy downpour and cloud to ground lightning strikes may 
accompany any storms that develop.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A lingering small ocean swell will produce a moderate rip current
risk at area beaches today. Remember to swim near a lifeguard. 
If caught in a rip current, relax and float. Don't swim against 
the current. If able, swim in a direction following the shoreline.
If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave for help.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
East winds to around 15 knots across the offshore waters north of
Sebastian Inlet will build seas up to 4 to 6 feet tonight. Small 
craft should exercise caution venturing offshore this evening and 
overnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
Poor boating conditions are expected offshore on Friday with
stronger onshore flow developing Sunday into Monday as a frontal 
boundary tightens the pressure gradient late in the weekend. This
will produce hazardous boating conditions for Sunday and Monday. 

The approach of a front late this weekend and an active southern
jet stream will keep at least slight thunderstorm chances in the
forecast for Sunday and again on Tuesday and Wednesday of next
week.

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