Warnings, Watches and Advisories:
HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK
Warning Issue Date: 1103 AM EDT Sat Sep 23 2017
Warning Expiration: 0315 GMT 24 2017
THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A moist and unstable atmosphere in the presence of brisk onshore
wind flow will result in scattered to numerous showers with an
increasing number of thunderstorms this afternoon. Locally heavy
rain...lightning...and strong wind gusts to 40 mph are the main
concerns throughout the day. Rain chances are 50-60 percent.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
A brisk onshore wind flow in the presence of a moisture rich
atmosphere will support increasing showers and storms moving
onshore and spreading far inland this afternoon. The situation is
somewhat unusual given the combined effects of an upper
trough...a subtle surface trough...and far-reaching influences of
Hurricane Maria. Concerns are that rainfall may be locally heavy
at times enhanced first near the coast...then inland as showers
and storms deepen and become larger with the opportunity for
additional local interactions. Amounts could reach 2-4 inches in
spots.

Several points along the Saint Johns River are already in flood
and additional heavy rain could further aggravate the situation.


.COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
Due to the far-reaching peripheral effects from Hurricane
Maria...seas within the nearshore waters will build to 5-7 feet
this afternoon...6-9 FEET tonight...AND 8-11 FEET on Sunday.
Large breaking waves and long period swells will move large
volumes of water onto the beaches. Minor to locally major beach
erosion may occur as surf becomes rough. This could aggravate
already weakened beach locations from recent previous storms.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Hurricane Maria is forecast to move northward well east of...and
parallel to ..Florida`s Atlantic coast this weekend. Maria will
cause the winds and seas to become elevated across the coastal
waters while also causing long period swells to propagate toward
the East Central Florida shoreline. This will make for hazardous
beach conditions. The risk for rip currents will be high...and
surf will become very rough. Swimmers are strongly encouraged to
stat out of the water.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Increasing numbers of onshore moving showers and storms will have
the chance to produce wind gusts near 40 mph...especially as
stronger ones move onshore. Scattered thunderstorms this
afternoon will offer a comparable threat to inland lakes.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
Long period swells from Hurricane Maria will propagate through
the coastal waters this weekend. Consequently there is a small
craft advisory in effect...especially for seas above 7 feet
across the nearshore waters...and well above 7 feet for the
offshore waters.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
The Saint Johns river is forecast to remain in flood through the
weekend near Cocoa...Sanford...Deland...AND Astor. Near Geneva
the river is forecast to remain in major flood. Any additional
heavy rain this afternoon could further aggravate the situation.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
Although the center of Hurricane Maria is forecast to remain
about 500 miles offshore the Florida Atlantic coast this
weekend...large swells are expected ti affect the coastal waters
and surf zone continuing into early next week. Conditions for
small craft operations will be hazardous across the entire
coastal waters.

Beachgoers can expect continued high surf and a high risk of rip
currents again Sunday. Minor to moderate beach erosion may
occur..and further threaten already weakened areas from recent
previous storms.

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