Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory, High Surf Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement, Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 9:01 PM CDT Apr. 30, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 4 am CDT
Monday...
... High surf advisory remains in effect until 4 am CDT Monday...
... High rip current risk remains in effect until 4 am CDT
Monday...

* coastal flooding... 2 to 3 feet above mean sea level.

* Surf heights... 5 to 8 feet.

* Timing... through late tonight.

* Impacts... frequent life-threatening rip currents are expected.
The surf is dangerous for all levels of swimmers. The threat of
minor coastal flooding will gradually diminish tonight as winds
begin to blow offshore and subside. The typical flood prone
locations are in and around Mobile Bay.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents. Rip currents are life-
threatening to anyone entering the surf. Swim near a lifeguard.
If caught in a rip current remain calm. Don't fight the current.
Swim in a direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape,
face the shore and call or wave for help. If tired, float or
tread water until out of the rip current.

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.

... Flash Flood Watch in effect through Monday morning...

The National Weather Service in Mobile has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of Alabama, northwest Florida,
and southeast Mississippi, including the following areas, in
Alabama, Baldwin central, Baldwin coastal, Baldwin inland,
Butler, Clarke, Conecuh, Escambia, Mobile central, Mobile
coastal, Mobile inland, Monroe, Washington, and Wilcox. In
northwest Florida, Escambia coastal, Escambia inland, Santa
Rosa coastal, and Santa Rosa inland. In southeast Mississippi,
George and Greene.

* Through Monday morning

* bands of thunderstorms with very heavy rainfall will continue to
develop and move across portions of inland southeast
Mississippi, southwest Alabama, and the western Florida
Panhandle. An additional 2 to 4 inches of rain is likely in many
locations with locally higher totals possible. The heavy
rainfall could occur over a short time frame, increasing the
risk of flash flooding. The heavy rainfall risk will shift east
of southeast Mississippi by midnight, but will persist through
the overnight hours along and east of the Interstate 65
corridor.

* Urban, low lying, and poor drainage areas will be the most
susceptible to flash flooding. Road closures are possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.





Wind Advisory
Issued: 8:45 PM CDT Apr. 30, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Wind Advisory remains in effect until midnight CDT tonight...

* timing... through late this evening.

* Winds... southeast to south winds 20 to 25 mph with frequent
gusts near 35 mph.

* Impacts... the gusty winds could result in the Downing of large
limbs, as well as blowing around loose lawn objects. Travel
will also be difficult at times especially if traveling on
bridges and overpasses as well as east to west oriented
roadways.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Wind Advisory means that winds of 25 to 39 mph or frequent
gusts of 30 to 39 mph are expected. Winds this strong can make
driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Use
extra caution. Secure loose outdoor objects to prevent them from
being blown around.
