          storm force.

        - PREPARE: Efforts to protect life and property should now be

          underway. Prepare for significant wind damage.

        - ACT: Act now to complete preparations before the wind

          becomes hazardous.


    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Significant

        - Some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with

          damage to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few

          buildings experiencing window, door, and garage door

          failures. Mobile homes damaged, especially if unanchored.

          Unsecured lightweight objects become dangerous projectiles.

        - Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater

          numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several

          fences and roadway signs blown over.

        - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within

          urban or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways,

          and access routes impassable.

        - Scattered power and communications outages, but more

          prevalent in areas with above ground lines.


* STORM SURGE

    - No storm surge inundation forecast


    - THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST

      UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Little to no storm

      surge flooding

        - PLAN: There is little to no threat of storm surge flooding.

          Rough surf, coastal erosion, and life-threatening rip

          currents are possible.

        - PREPARE: Little to no preparations for storm surge flooding

          are needed.

        - ACT: Follow the instructions of local officials. Monitor

          forecasts.


    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Little to None

        - Little to no potential impacts from storm surge flooding.


* FLOODING RAIN

    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST:

        - Peak Rainfall Amounts: Additional 2-4 inches, with locally

          higher amounts


    - THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST

      UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for

      moderate flooding rain

        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for

          moderate flooding from heavy rain. Evacuations and rescues

          are possible.

        - PREPARE: Consider protective actions if you are in an area

          vulnerable to flooding.

        - ACT: Heed any flood watches and warnings. Failure to take

          action may result in serious injury or loss of life.


    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Significant

        - Moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations

          and rescues.

        - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with

          swifter currents and overspill their banks in a few places,

          especially in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams,

          creeks, canals, and ditches overflow.

        - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken

          foundations. Several places may experience expanded areas

          of rapid inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and

          poor drainage areas. Some streets and parking lots take on

          moving water as storm drains and retention ponds overflow.

          Driving conditions become hazardous. Some road and bridge

          closures.


* TORNADO

    - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST:

        - Situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes


    - THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST

      UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for a few

      tornadoes

        - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for a

          few tornadoes.

        - PREPARE: If your shelter is particularly vulnerable to

          tornadoes, prepare to relocate to safe shelter before

          hazardous weather arrives.

        - ACT: If a tornado warning is issued, be ready to shelter

          quickly.


    - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited

        - The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the

          execution of emergency plans during tropical events.

        - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with

          power and communications disruptions.

        - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings,

          chimneys toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or

          overturned, large tree tops and branches snapped off,

          shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown

          off roads, and boats pulled from moorings.

NEW INFORMATION

---------------


* CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS:

    - A Storm Surge Watch and Tropical Storm Watch have been issued

      for Coastal Collier County

    - A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for Inland Collier County


* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:

    - A Storm Surge Watch and Tropical Storm Watch are in effect for

      Coastal Collier County

    - A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Inland Collier County


* STORM INFORMATION:

    - About 520 miles southwest of Miami FL or about 480 miles

      south-southwest of Naples FL

    - 20.1N 85.5W

    - Storm Intensity 40 mph

    - Movement Northeast or 40 degrees at 3 mph


SITUATION OVERVIEW

------------------


Tropical Storm Idalia sits in the Yucatan Channel and is forecast

to move into the southeast Gulf of Mexico late Monday into Tuesday.

Idalia is forecast to gain strength over the eastern Gulf as it

moves closer to Florida.


The following are the primary hazards of concern with Idalia:


* Coastal Flooding/Surge - Higher than usual tides due to the

  combination of surge from Idalia and the full moon could lead to

  moderate to major coastal flooding over portions of the southwest coast

  of Florida. The periods of highest tides look to occur on Tuesday and

  Wednesday. Additionally, minor tidal flooding will be possible for the

  SE coast of Florida in the period.


* Rainfall - The majority of the rainfall associated with the system

  is forecast to fall Monday afternoon through Wednesday. The

  greatest risk for flash flooding will be for portions of the Gulf Coast,

  with storm total rain amounts of 2-3 inches and localized higher

  amounts. Additionally, localized rainfall totals of 1-2 inches will be

  possible across portions of the SE coast of Florida during this period.


* Wind - Increasingly gusty winds are forecast Tuesday through

  Thursday, particularly along the Gulf coast and adjacent coastal

  waters. A reasonable worst case scenario would have tropical storm force

  winds across Collier County between Monday night and Wednesday. Areas of

  the East Coast and Atlantic waters could also see gusty winds up to 35 mph

  during the same time frame.



POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------


* SURGE:

Prepare for life-threatening surge having possible significant

impacts across coastal Collier County. Potential impacts in

this area include:

    - Areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by

      waves. Damage to several buildings, mainly near the coast.

    - Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become

      weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low

      spots.

    - Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes. Strong and

      numerous rip currents.

    - Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.

      Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in

      unprotected anchorages.


Also, prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited

impacts across coastal mainland Monroe county.


Elsewhere across South Florida, little to no impact is anticipated.


* FLOODING RAIN:

Prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant

impacts across the Gulf Coast. Potential impacts

include:

    - Ditches and canals may quickly become swollen with swift

      currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially

      in usually vulnerable spots.

    - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations.

      Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid

      inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage

      areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as

      storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions

      become hazardous. Some road and bridge closures.


Prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible

limited impacts across the remainder of South Florida.


* WIND:

Prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across areas

of South Florida west of Lake Okeechobee. Potential impacts in this area include:

    - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored

      mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.

    - Some large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or

      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are

      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.

    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban

      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on

      bridges and other elevated roadways.

    - Scattered power and communications outages.


Elsewhere across South Florida, little to no impact is anticipated.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

----------------------------------


* EVACUATIONS:

WATCH/WARNING PHASE - Listen to local official for recommended

preparedness actions, including possible evacuation. If ordered to

evacuate, do so immediately.



* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:

Now is the time to check your emergency plan and emergency supplies

kit and take necessary actions to protect your family and secure your

home or business.


When making safety and preparedness decisions, do not focus on the

exact forecast track since hazards such as flooding rain, damaging

wind gusts, storm surge, and tornadoes extend well away from the

center of the storm.


If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as

near the ocean or a large inland lake, in a low-lying or poor

drainage area, in a valley, or near an already swollen river, plan to

move to safe shelter on higher ground.


Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with orders that

are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives of

others.


When securing your property, outside preparations should be concluded

as soon as possible before conditions deteriorate. The onset of

strong gusty winds or flooding can cause certain preparedness

activities to become unsafe.


Closely monitor weather.gov, NOAA Weather Radio and local news

outlets for official storm information. Listen for possible changes

to the forecast.

**Tropical Storm Watch In Effect for Lake County**


NEW INFORMATION

---------------


* CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS:

    - A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for Northern Lake and

      Southern Lake


* CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS:

    - A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Northern Lake and

      Southern Lake


* STORM INFORMATION:

    - About 640 miles south-southwest of Leesburg FL

    - 20.1N 85.5W

    - Storm Intensity 40 mph

    - Movement Northeast or 40 degrees at 3 mph


SITUATION OVERVIEW

------------------


The center of Tropical Storm Idalia is located just over 120 miles

south of western Cuba this afternoon. Idalia is slowly drifting to the

northeast, and motion is expected to remain slow and possibly erratic

overnight, before increasing in speed to the north-northeast on Monday

and Tuesday. The storm is currently forecast to approach the western

Florida Peninsula late Tuesday into Wednesday. Preparations should be

ongoing for at least tropical storm conditions by midweek.


A Tropical Storm Watch is now in effect for Lake County, where

confidence is highest in tropical storm conditions occurring.

Additional watches may be necessary for portions of east-central

Florida in future forecasts.


Moisture associated with Idalia will reach central Florida as early as

Monday afternoon, boosting rain and thunderstorm chances during the

day. Conditions will begin to deteriorate Tuesday afternoon and

evening as Idalia accelerates north-northeastward across the eastern

Gulf of Mexico. As coverage of showers and squalls increases Tuesday

afternoon into Wednesday, the possibility of strong to damaging wind

gusts will also increase. Tropical storm force winds are forecast to

extend outward from the storm`s center, potentially reaching portions

of east-central Florida, including Lake County, Tuesday night into

Wednesday morning. Based on the current forecast track, Idalia will

make its closest pass to east-central Florida late Tuesday night and

Wednesday morning, continuing northeastward during the day on

Wednesday.


While the heaviest rainfall from Idalia is currently forecast to fall

along the Gulf Coast and western Florida Peninsula, gusty squalls will

be capable of torrential downpours, especially Tuesday and Wednesday.

One to two inches of rain from Monday afternoon through Wednesday

night is expected for a large portion of the area, with locally higher

amounts possible. Locations in closer proximity to the center of

Idalia, such as Lake County in east-central Florida, may receive

higher rainfall totals.


In addition to strong wind gusts, a threat for tornadoes is forecast

to develop as the center of Idalia moves into the eastern Gulf of

Mexico Tuesday afternoon, Tuesday night and into Wednesday.


Combined swells from Hurricane Franklin over the western Atlantic and

the approach of Idalia will likely lead to high seas, rough surf, and

an increase in life-threatening rip currents. Eastward adjustments to

the current forecast track would also increase the threat for possible

beach erosion and coastal flooding Tuesday into Wednesday.


Do not let your guard down, especially in locations east of the

current Tropical Storm Watch. Impacts from Idalia will be experienced

far from the center of the storm. Now is the time to ensure your

hurricane supply kit is stocked and your safety plan is in place.


As Idalia becomes better organized over the next 24 to 36 hours,

additional changes to the current forecast are possible. Eastward

shifts in the forecast track would increase the potential for impacts

locally, so continue to monitor the latest forecasts from the National

Hurricane Center and National Weather Service in Melbourne, Florida.


POTENTIAL IMPACTS

-----------------


* WIND:

Prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across

East Central Florida. Potential impacts include:

    - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored

      mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.

    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or

      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are

      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.

    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban

      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on

      bridges and other elevated roadways.

    - Scattered power and communications outages.


* FLOODING RAIN:

Prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible significant

impacts across Lake County. Potential impacts include:

    - Moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and

      rescues.

    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter

      currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially

      in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals, and

      ditches overflow.

    - Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations.

      Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid

      inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage

      areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as

      storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions

      become hazardous. Some road and bridge closures.


Prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible

limited impacts across the remainder of East Central Florida.


* TORNADOES:

Prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts across

East Central Florida. Potential impacts include:

    - The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution

      of emergency plans during tropical events.

    - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power

      and communications disruptions.

    - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys

      toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,

      large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees

      knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats

      pulled from moorings.


* SURGE:

Direct surge impacts from Idalia are not currently anticipated at this

time. However, larger swells and surf combined with Hurricane Franklin

will bring a threat for minor coastal flooding and beach erosion.Locations

more vulnerable to coastal flooding and beach erosion, such as portions

of the Volusia County coast, should stay updated on the latest

forecasts.

...HURRICANE WATCH IN EFFECT...

...STORM SURGE WATCH IN EFFECT...


A Hurricane Watch means hurricane-force winds are possible somewhere

within this area within the next 48 hours


A Storm Surge Watch means life-threatening inundation, from rising

water moving inland from the coastline, is possible somewhere within

this area within the next 48 hours


* LOCATIONS AFFECTED

- Venice

- Sarasota

- Englewood


* WIND

- LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Equivalent Tropical Storm force wind

- Peak Wind Forecast: 35-45 mph with gusts to 55 mph

UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for wind 58

to 73 mph

- PLAN: Plan for dangerous wind of equivalent strong tropical

storm force.

- PREPARE: Efforts to protect life and property should now be

underway. Prepare for significant wind damage.

- ACT: Act now to complete preparations before the wind

becomes hazardous.


- POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Significant

- Some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with

damage to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few

buildings experiencing window, door, and garage door

failures. Mobile homes damaged, especially if unanchored.

Unsecured lightweight objects become dangerous projectiles.

- Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater

numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several

fences and roadway signs blown over.

- Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within

urban or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways,

- Peak Storm Surge Inundation: The potential for 2-4 feet

above ground somewhere within surge prone areas

- Window of concern: Tuesday evening until Thursday morning


- THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST

UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for storm

surge flooding greater than 3 feet above ground

- PLAN: Plan for life-threatening storm surge flooding of

greater than 3 feet above ground.

- PREPARE: Storm surge flooding preparations should be

underway. Assemble disaster supplies and know your

evacuation route.

- ACT: Leave if evacuation orders are given for your area.

Failure to heed evacuation orders may result in the loss of

your life.


- POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Significant

- Areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated

by waves. Damage to several buildings, mainly near the

coast.

- Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads

become weakened or washed out, especially in usually

vulnerable low spots.

- Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes. Strong

and numerous rip currents.

- Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.

Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially

in unprotected anchorages.

- Peak Rainfall Amounts: Additional 3-6 inches, with locally

higher amounts


- THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST

UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for

moderate flooding rain

- PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for

moderate flooding from heavy rain. Evacuations and rescues

are possible.

- PREPARE: Consider protective actions if you are in an area

vulnerable to flooding.

- ACT: Heed any flood watches and warnings. Failure to take

action may result in serious injury or loss of life.


- POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Significant

- Moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations

and rescues.

- Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with

swifter currents and overspill their banks in a few places,

especially in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams,

creeks, canals, and ditches overflow.

- Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken

foundations. Several places may experience expanded areas

of rapid inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and

poor drainage areas. Some streets and parking lots take on

moving water as storm drains and retention ponds overflow.

Driving conditions become hazardous. Some road and bridge

closures.


* TORNADO

- LATEST LOCAL FORECAST:

- Situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes


- THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST

UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for a few

tornadoes

few tornadoes.

- PREPARE: If your shelter is particularly vulnerable to

tornadoes, prepare to relocate to safe shelter before

hazardous weather arrives.

- ACT: If a tornado warning is issued, be ready to shelter

quickly.


- POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited

- The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the

execution of emergency plans during tropical events.

- A few places may experience tornado damage, along with

power and communications disruptions.

- Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings,

chimneys toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or

overturned, large tree tops and branches snapped off,

shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown

off roads, and boats pulled from moorings.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for Atlantic coastal waters,

southeast Florida, southern Florida, southwest Florida and Gulf of

Mexico.


.DAY ONE...Tonight.


Thunderstorms: Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will

be possible through the evening hours. The strongest thunderstorms

could contain heavy downpours and gusty winds.


Rip Currents: There is a high risk for rip currents along the

beaches of Palm Beach County and a moderate risk for Miami Dade and

Broward Counties.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday.


Tropical storm Idalia will move over the eastern Gulf of Mexico in

the Monday night to Wednesday time frame, bringing increasing impacts

to the area, especially to SW Florida. For more specific impacts

refer to additional products issued by the National Hurricane Center

and NWS Miami.


Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will be possible

each day through the period. The chances of showers and thunderstorms

will increase area wide during the early to middle portion of next

week.


Heat index values could approach or exceed 105 degrees for some

locations, primarily over the interior and western portions of South

Florida through the week, and may approach or exceed 110 degrees

late in the period.


The approaching full moon, and the tropical system may also result

in instances of minor tidal flooding in the mid-week period for the

east coast.


An elevated risk of rip currents is likely for all coastal areas

Tuesday-Thursday as the Idalia approaches the area and tidal ranges
