* at 1227 PM CDT, periods of widespread heavy rain will endure
through Thursday. In addition to life-threatening flash flooding,
which happens over a six hour period or less, expect past and
future rains to also create inundation flooding over the next 18
hours. Essentially, with creeks and streams near bankfull and
soils saturated, the water has to have somewhere to go.

The NWS in Mobile Alabama is forecasting an additional 4 to 8
inches rainfall through late Thursday, with locally higher amounts.

Expect traditional low spots to remain inundated through at least
tomorrow morning.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
downtown Mobile, Midtown Mobile, Pensacola, Prichard, Ferry Pass,

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will continue to cause flooding
of small creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and
underpasses as well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

Coastal Flood Advisory, High Surf Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement, Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 7:11 AM CDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 6 PM CDT this
evening...
... High surf advisory remains in effect until 6 am CDT Friday...
... High rip current risk remains in effect through late tonight...

* surf heights... 6 to 9 feet... with a few breaker sets up to 10
feet through this morning... then subsiding to 5 to 7 feet by
late tonight.

* Coastal flooding... 1 to 3 feet of water above normally dry
ground can be expected today along low lying areas of the
northwest Florida Panhandle coast... especially around times of
high tide this morning.

* Coastal flood impacts... minor flooding impacts along coastal
areas... especially over locations such Fort Pickens Road and
other low lying areas.

* High surf and rip current impacts... the surf will be dangerous
to all swimmers. Frequent life threatening rip currents are
expected. Minor beach erosion is also possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

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.






532 am CDT Thu Jun 22 2017

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through late tonight...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of Alabama, northwest Florida, and southeast
Mississippi, including the following areas, in Alabama,
Baldwin central, Baldwin coastal, Baldwin inland, Butler,
Choctaw, Clarke, Conecuh, Covington, Crenshaw, Escambia,
Mobile central, Mobile coastal, Mobile inland, Monroe,
Washington, and Wilcox. In northwest Florida, Escambia
coastal, Escambia inland, Okaloosa coastal, Okaloosa inland,
Santa Rosa coastal, and Santa Rosa inland. In southeast
Mississippi, George, Greene, Perry, stone, and Wayne.

* Through late tonight

* life threatening flash flooding is possible as additional heavy
rain bands from Tropical Storm Cindy continue to stream across
the north central Gulf Coast region today. The rain bands will
begin to shift west of south central Alabama and the western
Florida Panhandle this evening. The widespread heavy rain threat
will begin to decrease over southwest Alabama and southeast
Mississippi by late tonight.

* Additional rainfall totals of 2 to 4 inches are likely with
locally higher amounts of 4 to 8 inches possible, especially
where the more persistent rain bands set up. 5 to 10 inches of
rain has already fallen across much of the watch area, and the
additional heavy rainfall will only further increase the
flooding potential across the area. In addition to the flash
flooding, many area rivers are forecast to reach moderate flood
stage.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

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

... Wind Advisory remains in effect until 6 PM CDT this evening...

* winds... southeast winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts around 35 mph.

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...

gusts of 30 to 39 mph are expected. Winds this strong can make
driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles. Use
extra caution.

Additional statements will be issued as conditions warrant.
