THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A continuing east swell will keep a moderate risk for life-
threatening rip currents at area beaches, especially in the
afternoon due to tidal effects. Check with ocean rescue 
personnel about surf zone hazards when arriving at the beach, and 
only swim near a lifeguard.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Increasing southeast winds of 15 to 20 knots expected offshore and
south of Sebastian Inlet today. Small craft should exercise
caution here for winds. Tonight, the stronger winds move closer
towards the coast south of Sebastian Inlet.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
Increasing southeast winds into mid week will build wind waves 
across the Atlantic. Small craft may need to exercise caution at 
times across the offshore Atlantic waters. Persistent onshore flow
through the upcoming week and a residual swell will elevate the 
rip current risk at east central Florida beaches.

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