THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR SOUTHEAST ALABAMA...
SOUTHWEST AND SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA...AND THE FLORIDA BIG BEND
AND PANHANDLE...AND ADJACENT COASTAL WATERS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT...

...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IN EFFECT THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH LATE
TONIGHT FOR THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE COASTAL WATERS...

IN ADDITION TO GUSTY WINDS AND BUILDING SEAS...THE THREAT FOR RIP
CURRENTS WILL INCREASE TO MODERATE TODAY FROM ST GEORGE ISLAND
WESTWARD.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY...
A COLD FRONT WILL STALL TO THE NORTHWEST OF OUR AREA TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY...AND REMAIN THROUGHOUT THE WEEK. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP SOUTH OF THIS FRONT...ESPECIALLY IN
SOUTHEAST ALABAMA AND SOUTHWEST GEORGIA. THERE COULD BE A MARGINAL SEVERE
THREAT ACROSS SOUTHEAST ALABAMA AND THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE
THURSDAY AFTERNOON...AS FAIRLY STRONG WINDS WILL DEVELOP NEAR THE
STATIONARY FRONT. ONE LIMITING FACTOR WILL BE WEAK INSTABILITY DUE
TO FAIRLY WARM AIR ALOFT...SO A SIGNIFICANT SEVERE WEATHER OUTBREAK APPEARS
UNLIKELY. CONDITIONS MAY BECOME MORE FAVORABLE (OVER A LARGER
AREA) FOR SEVERE STORMS ON SATURDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT AS A COLD
FRONT APPROACHES FROM THE WEST. THE COMBINATION OF FAIRLY STRONG
VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND INCREASING INSTABILITY COULD AID IN THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A POTENT SQUALL LINE NEAR THE COLD FRONT. THIS IS
STILL SEVERAL DAYS AWAY AND THIS FORECAST COULD CHANGE BEFORE
THEN.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED.
