HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK
Issue Date: 1117 AM EDT Tue Aug 14 2018
Expiration: 0115 GMT 15 2018
THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. .DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT. .THUNDERSTORM IMPACT... Scattered lightning storms will build northward along the sea breeze from the Treasure Coast towards Cape Canaveral this afternoon. Additional storms will push inland along the west coast sea breeze towards Lake county. Sea breeze and outflow boundary collisions will generate additional storms into early evening from Volusia county into parts of metro Orlando. Lightning strikes will be the primary hazard, which will become frequent in a few strong storms during the late afternoon and early evening. Strong wind gusts 45 to 50 mph will also be possible. .FLOOD IMPACT... A few of the strong and slower moving storms will be capable of producing locally heavy rainfall amounts of 2 or 3 inches in a short period of time. This will result in ponding of water on roadways and in other poorly drained areas. .MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT... Isolated strong storms this afternoon and evening will be capable of producing wind gusts greater than 40 mph across the inland lakes. Storm motion will generally be to the northeast at 10 to 15 mph, which would bring a threat of these strong gusts to the nearshore Atlantic waters, mainly from Cape Canaveral to the Volusia county coast. .RIVER FLOOD IMPACT... The Saint Johns River at Astor, Sanford, and above Lake Harney near Geneva remain above Action Stage. River levels are forecast to remain steady or slowly fall into late week. .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY. Storm coverage will gradually diminish into late week as drier air aloft pushes into the region. Lightning will be the main hazard with scattered to isolated storms through the upcoming weekend. .SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT... Spotter activation will not be needed this afternoon.
