While breezy conditions develop Monday with a chance of rain for
much of the gulf coast early this week, a weather pattern develops
later in the week that could favor the potential for a period or
two of impactful winds for the southern Panhandle. Currently, it
is too early to tell how strong winds could become or their time
of arrival. However, the pattern could produce strong storms
anytime between late Wednesday into next weekend. Should
confidence rise in specific timing, location, and strength of any
of these potential storms, high wind watches will be posted. If
any of these storms materialize, power outages could occur and
travel will be impacted.
