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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Winds, waves and seas locally higher in and near isolated to
scattered storms. Frequent lightning activity and visibility
reducing heavy rainfall will also be likely with the stronger
storms.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Winds, waves and seas locally higher in and near storms during the
outlook. Frequent lightning activity and visibility reducing heavy
rainfall will also be likely with the stronger storms.

A potential tropical system, to lift northwest over the western
Gulf at the close of the week, brings an increase in long period
swell up across the coastal waters Friday and into the weekend.
Increased swell may continue into the first of next week,
depending on eventual track and strength of western Gulf 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.
