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

.DAY ONE...Rest of Today and Tonight

No hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

A light wintry mix of precipitation is possible over interior
southeast Mississippi, interior southwest Alabama and the western
Florida panhandle late Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. The
precip is expected to move over west-central Alabama during the mid
afternoon hours, then reach the coast by mid evening. Snow
accumulations generally are expected to be one half inch or less,
though a burst of heavier snow may bring up to an inch, mainly
northwest of I65. Small accumulation of light rain is as the precip
begins. A bit of sleet mixing in is also possible as the rain
transitions to snow. Cold temperatures will move in quickly behind
the wintry mix, quickly freezing any precip on roads and bridges,
and may cause problems with driving.

A Hard Freeze Warning is in effect for interior southwest Alabama,
interior south central Alabama, and southeast Mississippi from 12 AM
Wednesday to 10 AM Wednesday. Another hard freeze is likely for the
entire area north of the coast Wednesday night.

Dangerous wind chill values in the single digits are expected
Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning generally north and west
of the I-65 corridor. A Wind Chill Advisory has been issued for most
of the area and is in effect from midnight Tuesday night until 10 am
Wednesday morning.

Southerly flow will return to the northern Gulf Coast by Saturday.
With warmer open Gulf air flowing over cool near-shore waters, dense
sea fog is possible this weekend along the coast.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Activation of SkyWarn severe spotter networks is not expected
through Sunday.
