THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Ocean conditions remain very favorable for the development of
strong and dangerous rip currents along the beaches of east
central Florida. While rip currents could form at any time, the
greatest risk is expected between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM due to
tidal effects. Residents and visitors are reminded to heed the
advice of lifeguards and beach patrol, and pay attention to flags
and posted signs. If you choose to enter the water today, do so
only near a lifeguard and never swim alone!

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
A moderate east swell will continue to keep combined seas up to 6
feet offshore. Small craft should exercise caution in the open
Atlantic as well as near inlets during the outgoing tide.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
A moderate east swell will continue to produce marginal to poor
boating conditions into early next week, especially near inlets
during the outgoing tide. The risk of rip currents will remain
elevated into next week.

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