This hazardous weather outlook is for southeast Alabama, Southwest and south central Georgia, the Florida Big Bend and panhandle, and adjacent coastal waters.
Day one...today and tonight...
...a dense fog advisory is now in effect until 11 am EDT /10 am
CDT/ this morning for all of southeast Alabama, southwest and
South central Georgia and the Florida big bend and panhandle...
Moist onshore flow from the Gulf of Mexico is combining with radiational cooling to produce an expanding area of dense fog across the region this morning. Visibilities across many locations in the tri-state area have already dropped to 1/4 mile or less and this area of dense fog is expected to blanket most of the Region before sunrise. Motorists are urged to use caution when driving to work this morning as the visibility may vary greatly over short distances. This fog is expected to linger for a couple of hours after sunrise before it lifts and burns off. Then a partly cloudy and warm afternoon is expected across the region with highs in the upper 70s near the coast to the mid 80s well. Inland skies will begin partly cloudy tonight, but areas of l clouds and dense fog are expected to move in once again after midnight.
Days two through seven...Wednesday through Monday...
Another very warm day is expected over the area on Wednesday before a weak cold front brings in slightly cooler and drier air from the north for Thursday. For the remainder of the week and upcoming weekend, the forecast is more uncertain and may become more unsettled with increasing chances for rain from Northwest to southeast across the area as low pressure approaches.
