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...
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP LATER
THIS MORNING AND AFTERNOON ACROSS THE REGION. DUE TO THE UNSTABLE
ATMOSPHERE IN PLACE ACROSS SOUTHEAST ALABAMA AND SOUTH GEORGIA...A
FEW OF THESE STORMS COULD BECOME STRONG TO SEVERE IN THE AFTERNOON
HOURS. THE MAIN THREAT FROM THESE STORMS WILL BE DAMAGING WINDS
AND LARGE HAIL.

ANOTHER DAY OF STRONG ONSHORE WINDS WILL LEAD TO ROUGH SURF
CONDITIONS ALONG THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE AND BIG BEND BEACHES. AS A
RESULT...THERE IS A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS TODAY.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...
HIGH PRESSURE WILL BEGIN TO BUILD OVER THE REGION ON FRIDAY AND
REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEKEND. THIS WILL RESULT IN
DRY...BUT VERY WARM CONDITIONS. HIGH TEMPERATURES AWAY FROM THE
COAST ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY WILL BE IN THE LOWER 90S. THE RIDGE
OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BEGIN TO BREAK DOWN ON SUNDAY ALLOWING FOR
LOW CHANCES OF AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO RETURN TO
THE FORECAST. AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL ALSO COOL A FEW
DEGREES INTO THE MID 80S BY THE FIRST OF THE WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS ACROSS A PORTION OF
THE REGION TODAY...SPOTTERS AND EMERGENCY MANAGERS SHOULD CLOSELY
MONITOR THE WEATHER. SPOTTERS SHOULD CONSIDER THEMSELVES ACTIVATED
AT THE ISSUANCE OF A WATCH OR WARNING IN YOUR AREA.

FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION...VISIT THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE
WEBSITE ON THE INTERNET AT WEATHER.GOV...THEN CLICK ON YOUR AREA
OF INTEREST ON THE NATIONAL MAP.
