Through early afternoon...a Flood Watch remains in effect for all east central Florida counties today into Monday. The local atmosphere is extremely moist and poised to produce additional heavy rain once again. Event totals through Monday may reach up to 5 to 6 inches in spots within areas of excessive rain. In fact...generous rains yesterday over the Shingle Creek basin in southwest Orange and northwest Osceola counties have swelled water levels toward action stage there. The basin will need to be monitored closely today for additional heavy rain to move across it. If so... residents need to be ready to act quickly if flood warnings are issued. This is true for many other places...especially since some areas have already received recent rainfall that has saturated the ground conditions. Never drive through places where water of unknown depth covers the Road. This morning...the best chances for locally heavy rain and strong wind gusts will be along the east central Florida coast as maritime showers and storms move onshore at 20 mph. Isolated waterspouts will also be possible today. This afternoon...activity is expected to develop further inland...as well...becoming fairly high in coverage. Concerns continue to be heavy downpours...frequent lightning...gusty winds to 40 to 45 mph... and nuisance flooding. Additional details...including graphics are available online at: http://www.Srh.NOAA.Gov/mlb/blog.Php

Areal Flood Watch
Statement as of 4:55 AM EDT on August 30, 2015

... Flood Watch remains in effect through Monday evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* east central Florida including...
Brevard... Indian River... Lake... Martin... Okeechobee...
Orange... Osceola... Seminole... St. Lucie... and Volusia County.

* Through Monday evening

* deep tropical moisture over the region combined with additional
tropical moisture from the remnants of Erika moving over the
Florida Straits and the west half of Cuba will create a threat
for very heavy rainfall across east central Florida through
Monday. Rainfall between 2 to 3 inches will be common with
local amounts between 3 and 5 inches possible.

* Heavy rain may create significant flooding of streets... urban
areas... and low lying flood prone areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

Special Statement
Statement as of 11:57 AM EDT on August 30, 2015

... Significant weather advisory for Indian River and southeastern
Brevard counties until 100 PM EDT...

At 1156 am EDT... Doppler radar was tracking a strong thunderstorm
near Gifford... moving northwest at 25 mph.

Winds in excess of 40 mph will be possible with this storm.

Locations impacted include...
Palm Bay... Sebastian... Vero Beach... Fellsmere and Indian River
Shores.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

The primary threats will be frequent cloud to ground lightning and
strong wind gusts... which can cause unsecured objects to blow
around... snap tree limbs... cause power outages or capsize small
boats. Heavy rainfall will temporarily reduce visibility. Seek
shelter indoors until the storm passes.

Heavy rainfall is also occurring with this storm... which will reduce
visibility and may lead to temporary flooding of low lying and poor
drainage areas. Do not drive your vehicle through flooded roadways.

Lightning can strike several miles away from a thunderstorm. Seek
shelter inside a building or vehicle. Open shelters found in
Parks... on beaches or Golf courses offer no protection from the
dangers of lightning.
