THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR WEST CENTRAL AND SOUTHWEST
FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
AMPLE MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY WILL LEAD TO SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS
THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE SEA BREEZE CIRCULATIONS TODAY...MAINLY
DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING HOURS. A WEAK STEERING
FLOW WILL SUPPORT SLOW AND ERRATIC MOVING STORMS WHICH WILL
FAVOR SOME HEAVY RAINFALL AMOUNTS IN SOME LOCATIONS. IN ADDITION
TO THE RAIN STRONG GUSTY WINDS...FREQUENT DEADLY LIGHTNING
STRIKES...AND SOME SMALL HAIL WILL ACCOMPANY THE STORMS. IF
YOU HEAR THUNDER OR OBSERVE LIGHTNING...MOVE INDOORS IMMEDIATELY.

...FLOOD IMPACT...
VERY SLOW MOVING THUNDERSTORMS WILL INCREASE THE RISK FOR SOME
LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL TODAY. THE HEAVY RAINFALL MAY PRODUCE
FLOODING OF LOW LYING AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS AS WELL AS THE
PONDING OF WATER ON ROADWAYS. MOTORISTS SHOULD EXERCISE EXTREME
CAUTION IF ENCOUNTERING HEAVY RAIN TODAY.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS CAN BE EXPECTED DAILY. A
DEVELOPING SOUTHWEST STEERING FLOW WILL FAVOR ISOLATED STORMS
ALONG COASTAL LOCATIONS DURING THE LATE NIGHT AND EARLY MORNING
HOURS...BECOMING SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS IN COVERAGE AS THEY
MOVE INLAND DURING THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING HOURS. THUNDERSTORMS
WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING STRONG GUSTY WINDS...LOCALLY HEAVY
RAINS...FREQUENT DEADLY LIGHTNING STRIKES AND SMALL HAIL.

...FLOOD IMPACT...
SLOW MOVING STORMS WILL CONTINUE TO PRODUCE LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL
AMOUNTS IN SOME LOCATIONS EACH DAY. THE HEAVY RAINFALL MAY PRODUCE
FLOODING OF LOW LYING AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS AS WELL AS THE
PONDING OF WATER ON ROADWAYS.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTERS SHOULD MONITOR THE WEATHER TODAY AND SELF ACTIVATE IF
NEEDED.
