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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

There is a moderate risk of rip currents at area beaches through
tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

An organized line of showers and thunderstorms is forecast to spread
across the area Saturday through Saturday night. Some storms will have
the potential to become severe, particularly from sometime late Saturday
morning through late Saturday evening. Conditions will be favorable
for an enhanced potential of straight-line damaging winds with these
storms, though a brief tornado or two will also be possible. The
relatively slow moving line of showers and thunderstorms will also
bring an increased potential of heavy rainfall and potentially
some flooding across the region Saturday and Saturday night,
especially along and west of a Greenville Alabama to Pensacola
Florida line.

There will be an increasing risk of rip currents along the Alabama
and northwest Florida panhandle beaches starting Friday and
continuing through the weekend. High surf is also expected along
area beaches from late Friday through Saturday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is possible Saturday into Saturday night.

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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

No hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Increasing southerly flow and building seas will likely bring
hazardous conditions for small craft Friday through Saturday night.
Moderate to strong offshore flow in the wake of a passing cold front
will likely continue to bring hazardous conditions to small craft
Sunday into early Monday.

Showers and thunderstorms will likely spread across the marine area
Saturday and Saturday night. There is still uncertainty on the
timing and overall strength of these storms, but it does appear that
a few strong to severe storms will be possible, capable of producing
high winds and locally higher seas, waterspouts, and very heavy
rainfall.
