storms could become strong producing gusty winds, frequent
lightning and heavy downpours that could result in localized
street flooding.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Tropical Depression Harvey is expected to strengthen to a tropical
storm and move from the southwestern Gulf of Mexico towards the
Texas coast on Friday. There is the potential for a prolonged
heavy rainfall event as well as gusty winds and high tide impacts
possibly starting by the weekend. Please remain attentive to the
future progress, forecasts and advisories from the National
Hurricane Center regarding this system.

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Highest heat index values to range from 101 to 105 degrees today.

Storms forecast to develop and become mostly scattered in coverage
through the day today. Some of the storms potentially strong.
Main impacts from storms will be brief strong wind gusts, frequent
lightning and locally heavy rain that may cause instances of
nuisance type flooding in some areas that experience poor
drainage.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

An increase in rip current hazards looks to set up Friday and into
the weekend, as a potential tropical system lifts up across the
western Gulf late in the week, bringing long period swell into the
surf zone. Elevated rip current hazards may linger into the first
half of next week.

There is at least some potential for a heavy rain and or severe
weather event to occur over the forecast area during the Monday
into Tuesday timeframe. This will be highly dependent on eventual
placement of a weak frontal boundary near the area and how the
surface low from Harvey tracks. Stay tuned.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Activation of SkyWarn Severe Storm Spotter networks is not
expected through Tuesday.

depending on eventual track and strength of western Gulf system.
