THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
MOIST SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST FLOW WILL RESULT IN SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS
FAST MOVING SHOWERS AND ISOLATED LIGHTNING STORMS INTO TONIGHT.
THE ACTIVITY WILL MOVE NORTH OR NORTHEAST AT AROUND 20 TO 25 MPH,
AND WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING DEADLY CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING
STRIKES, BRIEF PASSING HEAVY DOWNPOURS, AND WIND GUSTS AS HIGH AS
30 TO 40 MPH. HEAD INDOORS IF SKIES LOOK THREATENING, OR YOU HEAR
THUNDER.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
LOCALIZED HEAVY RAIN AMOUNTS OF ONE TO TWO INCHES WILL BE
POSSIBLE DUE TO THE POSSIBILITY OF TRAINING HEAVY SHOWERS AND
ISOLATED LIGHTNING STORMS. THIS CAN LEAD TO STANDING WATER IN LOW
SPOTS AND ON ROADWAYS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
THE COMBINATION OF OCEAN SWELL AND LOCAL TIDES WILL RESULT IN A
HIGH RISK FOR DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS AT THE CENTRAL FLORIDA
ATLANTIC COAST BEACHES. WHILE THE RIP RISK WILL BE IN PLACE ALL
DAY, THE HIGHEST THREAT WILL OCCUR FROM LATE MORNING THROUGH LATE
AFTERNOON.

IF HEADED TO THE BEACH, CHECK WITH THE BEACH PATROL FOR ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION ABOUT TODAY`S OCEAN HAZARDS. TO LESSEN YOUR CHANCES
OF BECOMING CAUGHT IN A RIP CURRENT, ALWAYS SWIM WITHIN SIGHT OF A
LIFEGUARD AND NEVER SWIM ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
FAST MOVING SHOWERS AND EMBEDDED LIGHTNING STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO
MOVE ACROSS THE ATLANTIC WATERS AND POINTS WELL INLAND. WIND GUSTS
UP TO 35 KNOTS WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH LOCALLY HIGHER WAVES ON AREA
LAKES, THE INTRACOASTAL WATER WAYS, AND NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC
WATERS.

.WATERSPOUT IMPACT...
MARINE INTERESTS SHOULD ALSO BE ALERT FOR THE POTENTIAL OF
WATERSPOUTS TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
THE COMBINATION OF WIND CHOP AND SWELL WILL CAUSE SEAS TO BUILD
AS HIGH AS 7 FEET OVER THE GULF STREAM RESULTING IN POOR TO
HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS FOR OPERATORS OF SMALL CRAFT. SOUTH TO
SOUTH-SOUTHWEST WINDS INCREASING TO 15 TO 20 KNOTS WITH HIGHER
GUSTS ARE ALSO FORECAST OVER THE COASTAL WATERS THIS MORNING.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
TROPICAL STORM HERMINE, LOCATED OVER THE SOUTH-CENTRAL GULF, IS
FORECAST TO MOVE NORTH AND INTENSIFY THIS AFTERNOON. THE SYSTEM WILL
THEN MOVE NORTHEASTWARD LATER TODAY INTO THURSDAY MORNING, AND THEN
MOVE ACROSS NORTHERN FLORIDA BY THURSDAY NIGHT.

VERY MOIST AIR ON THE EASTERN SIDE OF THE SYSTEM WILL BRING SHOWERS
AND STORMS WITH VERY HEAVY RAINFALL THROUGH THURSDAY, WITH THE
THREAT OF LOCALIZED FLOODING FROM THE SEVERAL ROUNDS OF SHOWERS
AND STORMS THAT ARE EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS. THERE ALSO
EXISTS A RISK FOR INCREASINGLY GUSTY WINDS AND ISOLATED TORNADOES
AS THE CENTER OF THE SYSTEM APPROACHES FLORIDA, ESPECIALLY ON
THURSDAY.

PERSONS IN CENTRAL FLORIDA SHOULD FOLLOW THE PROGRESS OF THE
DEVELOPING SYSTEM. LISTEN FOR UPDATED FORECASTS AND ADVISORIES
FROM THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER, AND FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE IN MELBOURNE.
