No new closures reported.

 

HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK:

There are indications that the flash flooding threat will gradually shift more west, becoming aligned from the Tennessee River Valley to off the Louisiana coast through the night. Within this axis, bands of showers and scattered storms look to lift northeast across the local area with the better coverages setting up along and west of Interstate 65. With soil moisture to capacity, any additional heavy rains will likely lead to runoff and additional flooding problems.

Dangerous surf conditions will continue, with long period swell and breakers of 5 to 8 feet moving up into the surf zone. A high surf advisory and a high risk of dangerous to potentially deadly rip currents continue.

Minor coastal flooding of the typically flood prone coastal roads along Alabama and northwest Florida panhandle beaches is likely to continue.

Isolated storms will be capable of producing brief tornadoes.

Strong southerly winds will remain along the immediate Alabama and western Florida panhandle coast. Sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph with occasional higher gusts are expected. Thus, a Wind advisory remains in effect through 6 PM.

Tropical cyclone formation is not expected during the next 5 days.
