THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A dampening long period swell will still be sufficient to produce
a moderate risk of rip currents at area beaches. This is
especially true during the time of outgoing tide this morning.
Always swim within sight of a lifeguard.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
A strong cold front is forecast to bring a good chance for some
rain and possibly a few thunderstorms Saturday night. Rainfall
amounts should be less than a half inch north of Orlando and less
than a quarter inch south of Orlando.

Boating conditions will deteriorate ahead of the front Saturday
night as southwest winds increase. Then strong west to northwest
winds will develop behind the front Sunday into Monday and bring
hazardous winds and seas over the local Atlantic waters.  Much
colder air will overspread the area Sunday night with temperatures
dipping to the mid and upper 30s many areas Monday morning, along
with wind chills dipping into the lower 30s in exposed locations.

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