Hurricane Statement
Issued: 4:09 AM CDT Oct. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

This product covers portions of southwest Alabama... northwest Florida... south
central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.


New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - the Tropical Storm Warning has been cancelled for Okaloosa
      coastal

* current watches and warnings:
    - none

* storm information:
    - about 100 miles south-southeast of Destin FL
    - 29.0n 86.0w
    - storm intensity 50 mph
    - movement northeast or 45 degrees at 17 mph

Situation overview
------------------
at 400 am CDT, the broad circulation center of tropical storm Nestor was estimated near
latitude 29.0 north, longitude 86.0 west. Nestor is expected to move toward the northeast
near 17 mph, and this general motion is expected to continue today. On the forecast track,
Nestor will move inland over the Florida Panhandle later this morning, and will then move
across portions of the southeastern United States later today.

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph with higher gusts. No change in strength is
anticipated before Nestor reaches the coast, but is forecast to weaken after it moves
inland. The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).

Potential impacts
-----------------

* other coastal hazards:

High surf with breaker heights of 6 to 10 feet from Fort Morgan, al east to Destin, FL
through mid morning. A high surf advisory remains in effect for Dauphin Island with breaker
heights of 5 to 7 feet. This pounding surf will create minor coastal flooding with inundation
of 1 to 2 feet expected through sunrise. Tides, however, are now falling. There is a high risk
of rip currents through sunrise Sunday morning due to increased swell height and strong
easterly winds.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------
all preparedness activities have ceased.

1036 PM CDT Fri Oct 18 2019

This product covers portions of southwest Alabama... northwest Florida... south
central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.

**Nestor moving quickly northeast toward the northern Gulf coast**

New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Okaloosa coastal

* storm information:
    - about 140 miles south of Pensacola FL or about 130 miles
      south-southwest of Destin FL
    - 28.5n 87.0w
    - storm intensity 60 mph
    - movement northeast or 45 degrees at 23 mph

Situation overview
------------------

At 10:00 PM CDT, tropical cyclone Nestor will continue to advance
northeast from the central Gulf of Mexico to the northeast Gulf by
late this evening. The system is then forecast to approach the coast
near Cape San Blas Florida during the pre-dawn hours Saturday morning,
before lifting inland over the southeast.

Maximum sustained winds along the coastal sections of Okaloosa County
will range between 25 to 35 mph, with gusts up to 40 mph. The
strongest winds are expected overnight.

Rainfall amounts mostly between 1 and 2 inches, with localized isolated
higher amounts possible, especially in coastal areas of the western
Florida Panhandle. This may lead to nuisance flooding in poor drainage
areas.

A coastal flood advisory remains in effect along the western Florida
Panhandle with inundation of 1 to 2 feet tonight and Saturday morning,
especially around the time of high tide. A high surf warning remains
in effect from Fort Morgan, al east to Destin, FL with breaker heights
of 8 to 11 feet into early Saturday morning. A high surf advisory
remains in effect for Dauphin Island with breaker heights of 5 to 7
feet.

Prepare now for damaging winds, minor coastal flooding, strong rip
currents, and periods of heavy rainfall across locations in the
Tropical Storm Warning area.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
coastal sections of Okaloosa County. Potential impacts in this area
include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest
Florida... south central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.,
Little to no impact is anticipated.

* Flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across coastal areas of the western Florida Panhandle
south of Interstate 10. Potential impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen
      and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest
Florida... south central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.,
Little to no impact is anticipated.

* Other coastal hazards:
high surf with breaker heights of 8 to 11 feet from Fort Morgan, al
east to Destin, FL will develop tonight into early Saturday morning. A
high surf advisory remains in effect for Dauphin Island with breaker
heights of 5 to 7 feet. This pounding surf will create minor coastal
flooding with inundation of 1 to 2 feet expected tonight into Saturday
morning, especially at the time of high tide. Minor to moderate beach
erosion will also occur through the period. There is a high risk of rip
currents through Saturday night due to increased swell height and
strong easterly winds.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------


* other preparedness information:
if in a place that is vulnerable to high wind, such as near large
trees, a manufactured home, upper floors of a high-rise building, or on
a boat, consider moving to a safer shelter before the onset of strong
winds or flooding.

Closely monitor weather.Gov, NOAA Weather Radio or local news outlets
for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes
to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather
warnings.

Situation overview
------------------

At 10:00 PM CDT, tropical cyclone Nestor will continue to advance
northeast from the central Gulf of Mexico to the northeast Gulf by
late this evening. The system is then forecast to approach the coast
near Cape San Blas Florida during the pre-dawn hours Saturday morning,
before lifting inland over the southeast.

Maximum sustained winds along the coastal sections of Okaloosa County
will range between 25 to 35 mph, with gusts up to 40 mph. The
strongest winds are expected overnight.

Rainfall amounts mostly between 1 and 2 inches, with localized isolated
higher amounts possible, especially in coastal areas of the western
Florida Panhandle. This may lead to nuisance flooding in poor drainage
areas.

A coastal flood advisory remains in effect along the western Florida
Panhandle with inundation of 1 to 2 feet tonight and Saturday morning,
especially around the time of high tide. A high surf warning remains
in effect from Fort Morgan, al east to Destin, FL with breaker heights
of 8 to 11 feet into early Saturday morning. A high surf advisory
remains in effect for Dauphin Island with breaker heights of 5 to 7
feet.

Prepare now for damaging winds, minor coastal flooding, strong rip
currents, and periods of heavy rainfall across locations in the
Tropical Storm Warning area.

Potential impacts
-----------------

* wind:
protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
coastal sections of Okaloosa County. Potential impacts in this area
include:
    - damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
      Mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
      shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
    - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban
      or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on
      bridges and other elevated roadways.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest
Florida... south central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.,
Little to no impact is anticipated.

* Flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across coastal areas of the western Florida Panhandle
south of Interstate 10. Potential impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
    - Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
      Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen
      and overflow in spots.
    - Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
      vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama... northwest
Florida... south central Alabama... and inland southeast Mississippi.,
Little to no impact is anticipated.

* Other coastal hazards:
high surf with breaker heights of 8 to 11 feet from Fort Morgan, al
east to Destin, FL will develop tonight into early Saturday morning. A
high surf advisory remains in effect for Dauphin Island with breaker
heights of 5 to 7 feet. This pounding surf will create minor coastal
flooding with inundation of 1 to 2 feet expected tonight into Saturday
morning, especially at the time of high tide. Minor to moderate beach
erosion will also occur through the period. There is a high risk of rip
currents through Saturday night due to increased swell height and
strong easterly winds.

Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------


* other preparedness information:
if in a place that is vulnerable to high wind, such as near large
trees, a manufactured home, upper floors of a high-rise building, or on
a boat, consider moving to a safer shelter before the onset of strong
winds or flooding.

Closely monitor weather.Gov, NOAA Weather Radio or local news outlets
for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes
to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather
warnings.
