THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will develop this afternoon, 
mainly over interior sections of east central Florida. Lightning 
strikes will be the primary hazard, which will become frequent in a 
few strong storms during the late afternoon. Wind gusts of 30 to 
40 mph and local heavy rainfall around one inch also will be 
possible. This will result in ponding of water on roadways and in 
other poorly drained areas.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Isolated strong storms this afternoon will be capable of producing 
wind gusts around 35 knots across the inland lakes, as well as the
open Atlantic north of Sebastian Inlet. Storm motion will 
generally be to the north-northwest at 5 to 10 knots. Gusty winds
can occur well out ahead of the heavy rain and lightning 
associated with an approaching storm.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The Saint Johns River at Astor, Sanford, and above Lake Harney 
near Geneva remain above Action Stage. River levels are forecast 
to remain steady or slowly fall into late week.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
Storm coverage will be lower than average Friday and Saturday as 
drier air aloft pushes into the region. Coverage should return 
closer to average starting Sunday. Lightning will be the main 
hazard with isolated to scattered storms. 

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