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...

HIGH END ADVISORY LEVEL CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE
MORNING OVER THE COASTAL WATERS OF THE NORTHEAST GULF OF MEXICO
WITH A FEW GALE FORCE GUSTS POSSIBLE. CONFIDENCE IS INCREASING IN
THE POTENTIAL FOR MORE FREQUENT GALE FORCE GUSTS LATER THIS
AFTERNOON INTO WEDNESDAY RESULTING IN THE ISSUANCE OF GALE
WATCHES.

WINDY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED OVER LAND AND INLAND LAKES THROUGH
THE EARLY EVENING WITH LAKE WIND ADVISORIES NOW IN EFFECT.
SUSTAINED WINDS WILL APPROACH 20 MPH LATER THIS MORNING AND INTO
THE AFTERNOON WITH FREQUENT GUSTS TO AROUND 25 MPH POSSIBLE. A
LAKE WIND ADVISORY INDICATES THAT WINDS WILL CAUSE ROUGH CHOP ON
AREA LAKES. SMALL BOATS WILL BE ESPECIALLY PRONE TO CAPSIZING.

DRIER LOW LEVEL AIR WILL RESULT IN LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY ACROSS
PORTIONS OF THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE...SOUTHEAST ALABAMA AND
SOUTHWEST GEORGIA THIS AFTERNOON. THE COMBINATION OF THE LOW
RELATIVE HUMIDITY AND STRONG NORTHEAST WINDS WILL ENHANCE THE
DEVELOPMENT AND SPREAD OF WILDFIRES.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY...

ALTHOUGH THE PATTERN IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN UNSETTLED WITH SHOWERS
IN THE FORECAST THROUGH THE MAJORITY OF THE WEEK...WIDESPREAD
RAINFALL AMOUNTS ARE NOT ANTICIPATED TO BE SIGNIFICANT.

DEPENDING ON THE EVENTUAL POSITION OF THE LOW...TIDES ALONG
APALACHEE BAY MAY BECOME A CONCERN DURING THE LATER PORTION OF THE
WEEK. CONFIDENCE IN THE POSITION OF THIS LOW REMAINS LOW...
HOWEVER A POSITION SOUTHWEST OF FLORIDA BIG BEND MAY RESULT IN
MINOR COASTAL FLOODING AT THE TIMES OF HIGH TIDE FRIDAY INTO THE
UPCOMING WEEKEND.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT ANTICIPATED.
