Hazardous Weather outlook for East Central Florida
TODAY AND TONIGHT. HIGH WIND IMPACT
Gusty north winds 30 to 35 mph will persist along the Volusia and Brevard coast this morning, then should ease slightly to 25 to 30 mph during the late morning and afternoon. A Wind Advisory is in effect until 7 am, then a Lake Wind Advisory goes into effect until 4 pm.
COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT
A high surf advisory is in effect, as open Atlantic sea heights to around 15 feet produce large breakers and wave runup to the dunes at some beaches. Minor erosion can be expected near the early morning and evening high tides.
EXCESSIVE COLD IMPACT
A wind chill advisory is in effect until 9 am for Lake, Orange, Seminole and western Volusia counties. Winds have been unusually gusty during the early morning hours, so it will feel like the upper 20 to lower 30s. Make sure to dress appropriately for these much colder than normal conditions.
RIP CURRENT IMPACT
The surf zone will be hazardous due to large breaking waves, but there is also a moderate rip current risk, mainly near piers, jetties and reefs. Venturing into the ocean is highly discouraged today. WIND AND SEA IMPACT
Conditions for small craft operation will be very hazardous as north to northeast winds 25 to 30 knots with gusts to gale force have generated seas up to around 12 feet, with seas near 15 feet in the Gulf Stream. A Gale Warning remains in effect until 4 pm, then a Small Craft Advisory is in effect. A potential for freezing temperatures exists Thursday morning through Saturday morning, especially over interior sections. Low winds chills are expected early Thursday morning across all of the area.
