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...
A LOW PRESSURE CENTER WILL MOVE EAST ALONG A WARM FRONTAL BOUNDARY
ALIGNED WEST TO EAST ACROSS SOUTHERN ALABAMA AND GEORGIA. AIDED
BY AN UPPER LEVEL SHORT WAVE...NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS ARE FORECAST TO DEVELOP NEAR THIS BOUNDARY. THE
FOCUS WILL BE WEST OF THE APALACHICOLA RIVER AND NEAR THE COAST
AND INTO THE ADJACENT WATERS. WHILE THE OVERALL THREAT FOR SEVERE
WEATHER IS LOW...THERE IS AN OUTSIDE CHANCE THAT A SEVERE STORM
WILL DEVELOP ESPECIALLY OVER THE WATERS AND ADJACENT COAST. THE BEST CHANCE FOR THIS
TO OCCUR WOULD BE ALONG PANHANDLE COASTAL AREAS WEST OF PANAMA
CITY. RAINFALL RATES ARE GENERALLY EXPECTED TO BE LOW ENOUGH TO
PREVENT FLOODING. HOWEVER...PONDING OF WATER IN POOR DRAINAGE
AREAS WILL BE POSSIBLE OVER PORTIONS OF THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE AND
SOUTHEAST ALABAMA. LOW PRESSURE WILL MOVE EAST TO THE GEORGIA
COAST BY TONIGHT WITH DRIER AIR BUILDING IN ACROSS THE LOCAL AREA
FROM SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST. EXPECT AREAS OF LOW CLOUDS AND FOG TO
DEVELOP.

A TIGHTENING SURFACE PRESSURE GRADIENT HAS INCREASED WINDS OVER
THE MARINE AREA AND MARINERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO EXERCISE CAUTION
THIS MORNING...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE OFFSHORE WESTERN WATERS.

THERE IS A MODERATE TO HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS TODAY...ESPECIALLY
THIS MORNING. THE HIGH RISK WILL OCCUR ACROSS WESTERN BAY AND WALTON
COUNTIES.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY...WARM ONSHORE FLOW
WILL KEEP A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IN THE FORECAST INTO
MID WEEK. THE NEXT IN A SERIES OF COLD FRONT DROPS SOUTHEAST INTO
THE LOCAL AREA ON WEDNESDAY BEFORE RETREATING NORTHEAST AS A WARM
FRONT. THE LAST IN THIS SERIES OF COLD FRONTS WILL MOVE SLOWLY
ACROSS THE AREA ON SATURDAY.
