Areas affected...Central/Eastern FL Peninsula

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible 

Valid 061605Z - 061800Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent

SUMMARY...Coverage of thunderstorms will likely increase over the
next few hours. Some of these storms could be severe. An upgrade to
Slight Risk is forthcoming for the Space Coast.

DISCUSSION...Visible satellite imagery has shown increasingly deep
cumulus over the past half hour or so across much of the central FL
Peninsula, south of a cold front extending from CGC eastward to OMN.
Thunderstorms are expected to develop along and ahead of this front
as the air mass continues to destabilize, resulting in moderate
instability this afternoon. Additionally, moderate mid-level flow
extends across northern portions of central FL (roughly the northern
half of MLB's CWA) appears strong enough to support storm
organization and the potential for a somewhat organized convective

Given the expectation for increasing storm coverage and potential
for updraft organization, an upgrade to 15% wind/hail probabilities
is forthcoming in the 1630Z Convective Outlook for the Space Coast.
Convective trends will also be monitored closely for possible watch
issuance. Primary severe threat is damaging wind gusts, although
hail and potentially even a brief tornado are also possible.
