1115 AM EDT Wed Mar 22 2017

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Long period northeast swells will produce a moderate rip current
threat at east central Florida beaches today. Rip currents are
powerful channels of water flowing swiftly away from shore and
most often occur at low spots or breaks in the sandbar and near
jetties and piers.

If you become caught in a rip current...yell for help. Remain
calm...do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current...swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

Always swim near a lifeguard and do not swim alone.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
A frontal boundary will move across the waters this evening and
overnight and bring strong and gusty northeast winds across the
Atlantic waters. Boating conditions will become poor to hazardous
for small craft. Small craft advisories will go in effect across
the east central Florida Atlantic waters tonight.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
There will be a slight chance for lightning storms across the
Atlantic tonight mainly over the warmer gulf stream waters.

.FIRE WEATHER IMPACT...
Low relative humidity and dry vegetation will produce a moderate
to high fire danger across east central Florida today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
Rough and pounding surf is expected at the beaches through
Saturday with an elevated risk for rip currents. Strong and gusty
onshore winds will also make wind and seas hazardous for small
craft operators into the upcoming weekend.


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