This product covers portions of southwest Alabama... northwest Florida... south
central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.

**Disturbance over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico now moving
north-northeastward with gale-force winds**

New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Baldwin central,
      Baldwin coastal, Escambia coastal, Escambia inland, Mobile
      central, Mobile coastal, Okaloosa coastal, Okaloosa inland,
      Santa Rosa coastal, and Santa Rosa inland

* storm information:
    - about 720 miles southwest of Pensacola FL or about 740 miles
      southwest of Destin FL
    - 22.9n 95.2w
    - storm intensity 40 mph
    - movement north-northeast or 20 degrees at 9 mph

Situation overview
------------------

At 4:00 PM CDT, potential tropical cyclone sixteen will move
northeast across the western Gulf of Mexico toward the north central
Gulf tonight and Friday. Maximum sustained winds along the coastal
sections of the western Florida Panhandle Friday night into Saturday
morning are expected to range from 30-45 mph with gusts of 50 to 60
mph. Maximum sustained winds along the coastal sections of Alabama
are expected to be in the 25-40 mph with gusts of 40 to 50 mph.

Heavy rainfall will also be possible along and east of I-65 with
rainfall totals forecast between 2 and 4 inches, with higher amounts
of 4 to 6 inches possible.

A coastal flood advisory is in effect with inundation of 1 to 2 feet
expected at the time of high tide on both early Friday and Saturday
mornings. A high surf advisory also in effect with breaker heights up
to 5 to 7 feet developing tomorrow afternoon along area beaches and
enduring into early Saturday afternoon.

Prepare now for damaging winds, minor coastal flooding, strong rip
currents and heavy rainfall across locations in the tropical storm
areas.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
the coastal sections of southwest Alabama and the western Florida
Panhandle. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest
Florida... south central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.,
Little to no impact is anticipated.

* Flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts along and east of I-65. Potential impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen
      and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest
Florida... south central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.,
Little to no impact is anticipated.

* Other coastal hazards:
high surf with breaker heights up to 5 to 7 feet developing tomorrow
afternoon along area beaches will continue into early Saturday
afternoon. This pounding surf will create minor coastal flooding with
inundation of 1 to 2 feet expected at the time of high tide on both
early Friday and Saturday mornings. Minor beach erosion will also
occur through the period. There is a high risk of rip currents
through Sunday morning due to increasing swell height and developing
strong easterly winds.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* other preparedness information:
if in a place that is vulnerable to high wind, such as near large
trees, a manufactured home, upper floors of a high-rise building, or
on a boat, consider moving to a safer shelter before the onset of
strong winds or flooding.

Closely monitor weather.Gov, NOAA Weather Radio or local news outlets
for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes
to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather
warnings.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
the coastal sections of southwest Alabama and the western Florida
Panhandle. Potential impacts in this area include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

* Flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts along and east of I-65. Potential
impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen
      and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest
Florida... south central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.,
Little to no impact is anticipated.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* other preparedness information:
if in a place that is vulnerable to high wind, such as near large
trees, a manufactured home, upper floors of a high-rise building, or
on a boat, consider moving to a safer shelter before the onset of
strong winds or flooding.

Closely monitor weather.Gov, NOAA Weather Radio or local news outlets
for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes
to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather
warnings.
