THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will develop this afternoon
across Osceola and south Brevard counties and move north. Additional
development will also be possible near collusion of the sea breeze
and outflow boundaries, mainly north of Orlando to Volusia county.
Lightning strikes will be the primary hazard, which will become 
frequent in a few strong storms during the late afternoon. Wind 
gusts of 20 to 30 mph and locally heavy rainfall of up to two inches
will also 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 greater than 35 knots across the inland 
lakes. Storm motion will generally be to the north-northwest at 
10 knots, which would bring a threat of these strong gusts to the 
nearshore Atlantic waters, mainly from Cape Canaveral to the 
Volusia county coast.

.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...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
Storm coverage will gradually diminish into late week as drier air
aloft pushes into the region. Lightning will be the main hazard
with isolated to scattered storms through early next week. 

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