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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A light wintry mix will be possible today and tonight over much of
the area. The precip is expected to move over west-central Alabama
and interior southeast Mississippi by the mid-afternoon hours,
then reach the coast and Florida panhandle by mid to late
evening. Snow accumulations are generally expected to be one half
inch or less, though a burst of locally heavier snow may bring
isolated totals up to or just over an inch, mainly over inland
areas. These brief bursts of heavier snow could also produce slick
spots on roads, especially bridges and overpasses. A Winter
Weather Advisory is in effect for much of the area from noon today
until 6am CST Wednesday.

Very cold temperatures move in quickly behind the wintry mix,
leading to the potential for black ice late tonight as any
residual moisture left on roads will freeze. A Hard Freeze Warning
is in effect generally along and west of the I-65 corridor
tonight, where low temps will range from the mid teens to around
20 degrees.

Dangerous wind chill values in the single digits are also expected
tonight across much of the area. A Wind Chill Advisory is in
effect from midnight tonight until 11 am Wednesday morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

A Hard Freeze Warning is in effect for the entire area Wednesday
night into early Thursday morning, as lows are expected to once
again dip into the mid to upper teens across much of the area.

A Wind Chill Advisory may be required once again Wednesday night
into early Thursday morning as single digit wind chills will be
possible across much of the area.

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.

...HARD FREEZE WARNING NOW IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO
9 AM CST THURSDAY...

* TEMPERATURE...Dropping to the mid teens to around 20 degrees.

* IMPACTS...Sub-freezing temperatures could result in hypothermia
  and will also be a danger for pets, livestock and sensitive
  vegetation. Exposed water pipes will be at risk of freezing and
  possibly bursting.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Hard Freeze Warning means temperatures of 20 degrees or lower
are expected. These temperatures can cause exposed water pipes to
burst. If you have any exterior open air piping, ensure the pipes
are adequately covered and open the faucet slightly for a small
stream of water overnight.

Check on elderly neighbors to make sure they have adequate heat.
Area shelters should continue to expect increased demand. Outdoor
pets and livestock should also have adequate warmth.

Take adequate safety precautions with heating systems, and make
sure to utilize carbon monoxide detectors in enclosed spaces.
Ensure space heaters are not left unattended and are not used
near flammable materials such as curtains or bed coverings. Space
heaters account for one out of every three home heating fires and
four out of five home heating fire deaths.
