This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of south central
Alabama...southwest Alabama...northwest Florida and southeast

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Scattered showers and thunderstorms over the region early this
evening will dissipate by late evening. Some of the stronger
storms could produce strong gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall
through early evening, but severe weather is not anticipated

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected each
day. Frequent lightning, gusty winds and locally heavy downpours are
possible with the stronger storms. A widespread heavy rain threat
will be possible Tuesday through Thursday as abundant tropical
moisture advects northward from the Gulf of Mexico and into our
area. Heaviest rainfall potential will be over our southern and
coastal counties, where up to 2 to 4 inches (possibly locally
double those amounts) could occur. We are currently advertising an
Elevated Flood Threat area Tuesday through Thursday - generally
along and south of a Wiggins, Bay Minette, Crestview line - with
a Limited Flood Threat over the remainder of the forecast area.
Otherwise, confidence on track/intensity and other associated
impacts from the developing system over the Gulf remains low at
this time. In addition, an increasing risk of rip currents and
high surf along the Gulf is also looking more likely during the
Tuesday through Thursday time frame.


Activation of SkyWarn Severe Storm Spotter networks is not expected
through Friday at this time, but the developing situation in the
Gulf should continue to be monitored through the upcoming week.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of the coastal
waters of Alabama and northwest Florida.

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Generally light to moderate southeasterly winds are expected over
the coastal waters tonight. Isolated showers and thunderstorms
could redevelop over the coastal waters late tonight. Gusty winds,
lightning and locally rough sea/wave conditions in and near the
stronger storms, but otherwise no hazards are expected over the
marine area tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Increasing coverage of showers and thunderstorms expected over the
marine area this week, especially Tuesday and Wednesday. Frequent
lightning along with locally higher winds, waves and seas will be
possible near storms. Also, visibility could be reduced at times
to less than a mile in any heavier rains.

Moderate to occasionally strong winds well offshore may create
hazardous conditions for small craft mainly Tuesday through Thursday.
