Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory, High Surf Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 5:33 AM 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 through late tonight...

* coastal flooding... 2 to 3 feet above mean sea level especially
near high tide this afternoon.

* Surf heights... increasing to 5 to 8 feet today.

* Timing... through late tonight.

* Impacts... frequent life-threatening rip currents are expected.
The surf is dangerous for all levels of swimmers. The greatest
threat for minor coastal flooding will occur this afternoon
during high tide... particularly across the typical flood prone
locations 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.







Wind Advisory
Issued: 5:21 AM 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 increasing to 20 to 30 mph with
frequent gusts of 30 to 40 mph. The strongest wind speeds will
be during the daytime hours.

* Impacts... the gusty winds could result in the Downing of large
limbs and weak trees, 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.
