Easterly low level winds will push isolated to scattered showers to interior sections of the peninsula...with most activity shifting into western sections by late afternoon. There is a slight chance for lightning storms mainly from near the Kissimmee river basin into Lake County. With moist low levels and weaker winds than the past several days...an isolated funnel cloud is also possible into early afternoon...though with the relatively weak convection...we would not anticipate any touchdowns to occur. The main hazard will continue to be rip currents. The surf zone will look more inviting than previous days due to less wind chop on the ocean. However a 9 to 10 second swell around 3 feet will continue to generate dangerous rip currents. Low tide is around noon...and the greatest seaward pull of rip currents should occur 3 hours either side of low tide. Crowds are not expected to be as great as last weekend...when lifeguards had to save hundreds of ocean bathers. But rip currents should be just as strong. If you know someone going to the beach...make sure they are aware of ocean hazards...especially rip currents. Swim only near a lifeguard and heed their advice. Never swim alone in the ocean.

Coastal Hazard Statement
Statement as of 4:24 AM EDT on May 30, 2015

... High rip current risk in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect through this evening for east
central Florida beaches.

* Timing... a high risk of rip currents is in effect today. The
greatest seaward pull from rip currents will occur around the
time of low tide in the late morning and early afternoon.

* Impacts... strong life threatening rip currents will cause
hazardous swimming conditions at east central Florida beaches
today.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as jetties and
piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol flags and
signs. Remember to always swim near a lifeguard.

If you become caught in a rip current... never attempt to swim
directly against it... as you will tire quickly. Instead... tread
water and then swim at an angle away from the current. Then once
out of the current... swim directly back toward the beach.
