THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.


.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Weather and ocean conditions will produce a Moderate Risk of
strong rip currents at the beaches of east central Florida. While
rip currents will be present all day, the threat will be highest
from late morning through mid afternoon due to tidal effects.
Check with your local beach patrol for additional information
about ocean hazards. Always swim within sight of a lifeguard, and
never swim alone.

Small Craft should exercise caution today for southeast winds
increasing 15 to 20 knots. A Small Craft Advisory will go into

tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.

Windy conditions will occur on Friday ahead of a strong cold
front. South to southwest winds 20 to 25 mph will gust 30 to 35
mph over land. Boating conditions will be very hazardous Friday
with gusts to Gale Force expected over the offshore Atlantic
waters, along with seas as high as 9 to 11 feet.

A strong cold front will cross east central Florida Friday night,
preceded by a squall line of fast moving lighting storms during
the late afternoon and evening. Individual lightning storms may
develop ahead of the primary band of storms during the early to
mid afternoon. The primary threat will be damaging straight line
winds around 60 mph though an isolated tornado will also be
possible. A period of heavy rainfall accumulating one half inch
to one inch can be expected. Storm motion will be rapidly toward
the east-northeast at 50 to 60 mph.

If working or recreating outdoors on Friday afternoon or evening,
