...STORM TO IMPACT SOUTHERN PANHANDLE TODAY...

A FAST DEVELOPING AND FAST MOVING STORM WILL MOVE INTO THE SOUTHERN
PANHANDLE LATE THIS MORNING NEAR CAPE DECISION THEN ACROSS
KUPREANOF ISLAND BEFORE WEAKENING BY EVENING. SOUTH WINDS WILL
INCREASE QUICKLY THIS MORNING THEN SHIFT TO THE WEST IN THE
AFTERNOON. WIND GUSTS OF 45 TO 55 MPH AND RAIN RATES OVER ONE
QUARTER OF AN INCH PER HOUR ARE POSSIBLE. RAINFALL TOTALS OF AROUND
2 INCHES CAN BE EXPECTED THROUGH THIS EVENING.

PONDING OF WATER ON ROADS IS LIKELY AND SMALL STREAMS AND CREEKS

THEIR BANKS. A COMBINATION OF HEAVY RAIN AND STRONG WINDS ON TOP OF
ALREADY SATURATED SOILS WILL INCREASE THE THREAT FOR MUDSLIDES NEAR
AND ALONG STEEP TERRAIN.
