THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTH CENTRAL
ALABAMA...SOUTHWEST ALABAMA...NORTHWEST FLORIDA AND SOUTHEAST
MISSISSIPPI.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

A VIGOROUS MID LEVEL STORM SYSTEM AND STRENGTHENING SURFACE LOW LIFTS
NORTHEAST UP ACROSS THE LOWER TO MID MISSISSIPPI RIVER VALLEY TODAY.
AHEAD OF THIS WEATHER SYSTEM...THE AIRMASS BECOMES MORE MOIST AND
UNSTABLE. AT SAME TIME...LOW LEVEL WINDS INCREASE MARKEDLY AND TURN
WITH HEIGHT. A SQUALL LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS WAS ORGANIZING FROM OFF
THE LOUISIANA COAST AND THIS LINE IS FORECAST TO DEVELOP NORTHWARD
TODAY AS THE UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM LIFTS NORTHEAST. ISOLATED
TORNADOES ARE POSSIBLE IN DISCRETE...ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS THAT
FORM OUT AHEAD OF MAIN LINE THAT IS FORECAST TO MAKE EASTWARD PROGRESS
OVER THE CENTRAL GULF COAST. THE LATEST TIMING SUGGESTS THAT THE LINE
MOVES ACROSS SOUTHEAST MISSISSIPPI BETWEEN 9 AND 11 AM...CONTINUING
INTO SOUTHWEST ALABAMA AROUND THE NOON HOUR AND MOVING EAST OF
INTERSTATE 65 AND THE WESTERN FLORIDA PANHANDLE BETWEEN 1 AND 3 PM.
IN ADDITION TO THE ISOLATED TORNADO THREAT...WILL BE THE POTENTIAL OF
LOCALIZED DAMAGING WIND GUSTS. LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS ARE ALSO
POSSIBLE...BUT THE RAPID EASTWARD PROGRESSION OF THE LINE IS EXPECTED
TO LIMIT WIDESPREAD FLASH FLOODING ISSUES.

A STRENGTHENING SURFACE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVES INTO THE LOWER TO
MID MISSISSIPPI RIVER VALLEY TODAY. AS THIS OCCURS...EAST NORTHEAST
WINDS THIS MORNING BECOME STRONG FROM THE SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST THROUGH
THE DAY. THE INCREASE IN WINDS...IN COMBINATION WITH SPRING TIDAL
CYCLES AND AN INCREASE IN HIGHER PERIOD SWELL MAINTAINS THE HIGH
RISK OF DANGEROUS TO POTENTIALLY DEADLY RIP CURRENTS ALONG THE
BEACHES TODAY AND TONIGHT.

WIND ADVISORIES ARE ALSO IN EFFECT FOR TODAY.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

A HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS...ALONG AREA BEACHES...MAY CARRY OVER
INTO THE DAY MONDAY.

NO HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS EXPECTED TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
