THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A Moderate Risk for rip currents will exist at the beaches of east
central Florida and breezy onshore winds will produce rough surf.
A longshore current, from south to north, will also exist at the 
beaches today and can be strong enough to knock you off the 
sandbar into deep water. Check with ocean rescue personnel about 
surf hazards when arriving at the beach, and only swim near a 
lifeguard.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
East to southeast winds around 15 knots will create choppy short 
period wind waves and poor boating conditions over most of the 
Atlantic coastal waters. 

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
A moderate southeast wind flow will continue to produce poor 
conditions for small craft operation through late week. Rough surf
and rip currents will also keep beach conditions hazardous.

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