510 AM EDT Sat Jul 21 2018

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Deep layer southwest flow coupled with increased moisture across
the northern half of Florida will lead to scattered to numerous
showers and lightning storm across easy central Florida today,
along and ahead of the west coast sea breeze as it quickly moves
from west to est across the peninsula. Once again, the highest
coverage is expected near and north of the Interstate-4 corridor
once again this afternoon.

Storm motion today will be eastward at 20 to 25 MPH. The main
storm threats will be frequent cloud to ground lightning, wind
gusts of 40 to 45 MPH, and torrential downpours of up to 1 to 2
inches in a 60 to 90 minute period, which may cause ponding of
water in urban and other poorly drained, low lying areas. Move
indoors to safety at the first sign of threatening skies, or if
you hear thunder.


.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Afternoon storms will be capable of producing wind gusts of 35
knots or greater on area lakes, as well as the intracoastal and
near shore Atlantic waters. The highest threat will be from Lake
Kissimmee and Cape Canaveral northward. Mariners should watch for
storms quickly approaching from the west.

.EXCESSIVE HEAT IMPACT...
Afternoon heat indices between 100 and 105 degrees are expected
from Lake Kissimmee and Cape Canaveral southward to Okeechobee
and Tequesta. If working outside or engaging in any outdoor
activity, be sure to remain well hydrated, and take frequent rest
breaks.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Weather and ocean conditions will lead to a moderate threat for
dangerous Rip Currents at area beaches today. While rips will be
present all day, the threat will be highest between sunrise and
100 PM due to tidal effects. Check with your local beach patrol
for additional information about ocean hazards. Swim only within
sight of a lifeguard, always heed their warnings, and never swim
alone.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The Saint Johns River above Lake Harney near Geneva remains at
Minor Flood Stage, and a River Flood Warning remains in effect
for this area. The Saint Johns River at Astor, and near Sanford
and Deland remain near or above Action Stage.

Barring additional significant rainfall over the basin or its
headwaters, river levels are forecast to either remain steady or
very slowly fall through early next week.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
Scattered to numerous afternoon and evening showers and storms
are expected into early next week. The main storm threats will
continue to be frequent cloud to ground lightning strikes, gusty
winds and torrential downpours producing urban, river, and poor
drainage flooding.


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

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for West Central And Southwest
Florida.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
An unsettled weather pattern will remain over the region, with
repeat rounds of thunderstorms moving in off the Gulf of Mexico.
Storms may contain gusty winds, lightning and brief heavy
downpours that could lead to localized flooding. Activity will
become less widespread overnight, but areas along the coast may
continue to see occasional showers.

...RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
High surf will produce rip currents along area beaches.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
The overall weather pattern will change little over the next few
days, with multiple rounds of thunderstorms moving off the Gulf
waters. Any stronger storms may produce gusty winds, lightning,
and locally heavy rainfall. As the ground becomes more saturated
with time, flooding may become more of a concern.

...MARINE IMPACTS...
Southwest winds will increase slightly tomorrow into the first
half of the week, rising into the 15 to 20 knot range. This will
lead to building seas over the waters. In addition, scattered to
numerous showers and storms will remain likely over the waters.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today.
