TIDAL CYCLE...A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS IS FORECAST ALONG THE
BEACHES.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

A HIGH RISK OF DANGEROUS...TO POTENTIALLY DEADLY RIP CURRENTS SETS

A VIGOROUS STORM SYSTEM IN THE HIGH LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE...MOVING
ACROSS TEXAS ON SATURDAY...LIFTS NORTHEAST UP ACROSS THE LOWER TO
MID MISSISSIPPI RIVER VALLEY SUNDAY MORNING. WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND
EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO SPREAD ACROSS SOUTHEAST
MISSISSIPPI...SOUTHWEST AND SOUTH CENTRAL ALABAMA...AND THE NORTHWEST
FLORIDA PANHANDLE LATE SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY MORNING. SOME OF

WINDS AND ISOLATED TORNADOES. GIVEN AN ASSESSMENT OF THE WIND
PROFILES...STORMS LOOK TO TRACK OFF TO THE NORTHEAST AT A RAPID 40 TO
45 MPH. THUS...ANY SEVERE WEATHER THREATS WILL LIKELY HAPPEN VERY

ISSUES...MAINLY OVER POOR DRAINAGE AND LOW LYING URBAN AREAS. THE
RISK OF MORE OF A WIDESPREAD FLASH FLOODING THREAT IS LIMITED DUE TO
DRY SOIL CONDITIONS AND THE FACT THAT MANY LOCAL RIVERS ARE
EXPERIENCING STREAM FLOWS WHICH ARE BELOW NORMAL.
