...Thunderstorms Over the Western Interior This Evening...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT

Thunderstorms: Ongoing thunderstorms across Glades, Hendry, and
inland Collier counties will wane through the late evening hours.
Lightning and brief heavy rainfall are the primary threats with this
lingering activity.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

Isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms are possible Tuesday with
lightning and brief heavy rainfall being the primary threats.

The rip current risk may increase for the Gulf Coast beaches ahead
of a cold front Wednesday.

The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted portions of South
Florida around Lake Okeechobee into Collier County in a Slight Risk
for severe thunderstorms Wednesday into Thursday, and the remainder
of South Florida in a Marginal Risk for severe thunderstorms as a
cold front approaches the region. At the present time, damaging winds
look to be the primary threat, although an isolated tornado or two
cannot be ruled out. Interests in South Florida should continue to
monitor the forecast closely over the coming days.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are again possible across the
region, especially during the afternoon and evening hours, Friday
through Sunday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed tonight.

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
With plenty of low level moisture isolated to scattered showers
and thunderstorms developed late this afternoon and will continue
through early evening where sea breeze collisions occured. A few
stronger storms may result, producing frequent lightning strikes,
small hail, strong wind gusts up to 40 to 50 mph, and locally heavy
rainfall.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A moderate risk of rip currents exists along the beaches of east
central Florida. The greatest threat for rip currents will occur
through mid afternoon due to tidal effects. Always swim near a
lifeguard and do not swim alone.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Any stronger storms that develop across the interior lakes and
coast late this afternoon can produce wind gusts in excess of 34
knots as they move eastward and eventually offshore. The greatest
threat for any stronger offshore moving storms will be across the
coast of Volusia and Brevard Counties from late afternoon through
early evening.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Southerly winds will increase up to 15 to 20 knots offshore of
Volusia and Brevard counties late tonight. Small craft should
exercise caution if venturing over these waters overnight.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
Gusty southeast winds will be possible with the inland moving
east coast sea breeze this afternoon, especially south of Cape
Canaveral. This combined with continued dry vegetation and an
increased threat for lightning storms will produce a high danger
for development and spread of new wildfires, or flareups of
existing burns. Burn bans remain in effect for all counties in
east central Florida.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
Lingering moisture will keep a higher chance for lightning storms
across the area through Thursday as a front stalls north of the
area and eventually moves through region later in the week. Strong
to isolated severe storms will be possible across central
Florida, mainly Wednesday into Wednesday night.

Increasing south to southwest winds from late Tuesday into late
week will lead to deteriorating boating conditions over the
coastal waters.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotters are requested to monitor the weather and self activate
if needed.
