**Disturbance becomes tropical storm nestor**

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

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Baldwin central,
      Baldwin coastal, Escambia coastal, Escambia inland, Mobile
      central, Mobile coastal, Okaloosa coastal, Okaloosa inland,
      Santa Rosa coastal, and Santa Rosa inland

* storm information:
    - about 320 miles south-southwest of Pensacola FL or about 340
      miles south-southwest of Destin FL
    - 26.3n 89.5w
    - storm intensity 60 mph
    - movement northeast or 55 degrees at 22 mph

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

At 1:00 PM CDT, tropical cyclone Nestor will continue to advance
northeast across the central Gulf of Mexico, and become positioned
over the northeast Gulf by late this evening. The system is then
forecast to near the coast later tonight.

Maximum sustained winds along the immediate coastline of the western
Florida Panhandle will likely range between 35 to 45 mph, with gusts
up to 60 mph. Further west along the immediate coastal sections of
southwest Alabama, maximum sustained winds between 25 and 35 mph, with
gusts up to 50 mph will be likely. Winds are expected to be lower
across inland portions of coastal counties. The strongest winds are
expected tonight.

Rainfall amounts between 2 and 4 inches, with isolated higher amounts
will be possible, especially in coastal areas south of Interstate 10.
This may lead to nuisance flooding in poor drainage areas. Rainfall
totals are expected to remain below flash flood guidance at this time.

A coastal flood advisory remains in effect with inundation of 1 to
2 feet expected tonight and Saturday morning, especially around the
time of high tide. A high surf advisory is also in effect with breaker
heights up to 5 to 8 feet developing this afternoon along area beaches
and persisting into early Saturday afternoon.

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 southwest Alabama and the western Florida Panhandle.
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 portions of southwest Alabama and the
western Florida Panhandle. 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 12 feet from Fort Morgan, al
east to Destin, FL will develop later today into early Saturday morning.
A high surf advisory remains in effect for Dauphin Island with breaker
heights of 5 to 8 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.

heights of 5 to 8 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

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

At 10:00 am CDT, potential tropical cyclone sixteen continues to
advance northeast across the central Gulf of Mexico. This cyclone is
expected to gradually strengthen into a tropical or subtropical storm
later today and be positioned over the north central Gulf of Mexico by
late this afternoon. The system is forecast to near the coast later
tonight.

Maximum sustained winds along the immediate coastline of the western
Florida Panhandle will likely range between 30 to 40 mph, with gusts
up to 55 mph. Further west along the immediate coastal sections of
southwest Alabama, maximum sustained winds between 25 and 35 mph, with
gusts up to 50 mph. Winds are expected to be lower across inland
portions of coastal counties. The strongest winds are expected tonight.

Rainfall amounts between 2 and 4 inches east of I-65 are likely, with
isolated higher amounts possible, especially south of I-10. This may
lead to nuisance flooding in poor drainage areas. Rainfall totals are
expected to remain below flash flood guidance at this time.

A coastal flood advisory remains in effect with inundation of 1 to 2
feet expected tonight and Saturday morning, especially around the time
of high tide. A high surf warning is now in from Fort Morgan, al east
to Destin, FL with breaker heights of 8 to 12 feet developing later
today into early Saturday morning. A high surf advisory remains in
effect for Dauphin Island with breaker heights of 5 to 8 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 southwest Alabama and the western Florida Panhandle.
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 portions of southwest Alabama and the
western Florida Panhandle. 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 12 feet from Fort Morgan, al
east to Destin, FL will develop later today into early Saturday morning.
A high surf advisory remains in effect for Dauphin Island with breaker
heights of 5 to 8 feet. This pounding surf will create minor coastal

... High surf advisory now in effect until noon CDT Saturday...
... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 7 am CDT
Saturday...
... High rip current risk remains in effect through Sunday
morning...

* coastal flooding... inundation 1 to 2 feet near the time of high
tide late this evening through early Saturday morning.

* Waves and surf... breaker heights increasing to 5 to 7 feet late
today and tonight continuing through most of Saturday morning.

* Where... Dauphin Island.

* Impacts... frequent life-threatening rip currents are expected.
The surf is dangerous for all levels of swimmers.

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.

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

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.

... Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect...

* locations affected
    - Grand Bay
    - Dauphin Island
    - Bayou La Batre

* wind
    - latest local forecast: below tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 20-30 mph with gusts to 40 mph

    - potential threat to life and property: potential for wind 39 to
      57 mph
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Plan: plan for hazardous wind of equivalent tropical storm
          force due to possible forecast changes in track, size, or
          intensity.
        - Prepare: efforts to protect property should now be
          underway. Prepare for limited wind damage.
        - Act: act now to complete preparations before the wind
          becomes hazardous.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - 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.

* Storm surge
    - latest local forecast: localized storm surge possible
        - peak storm surge inundation: the potential for up to 2 feet
          above ground somewhere within surge prone areas
        - window of concern: through Monday morning

    - potential threat to life and property: potential for storm
      surge flooding greater than 1 foot above ground
        - the storm surge threat has increased from the previous
          assessment.
        - Plan: plan for storm surge flooding greater than 1 foot
          above ground.
        - Prepare: complete preparations for storm surge flooding,
          especially in low-lying vulnerable areas, before conditions
          become unsafe.
        - Act: leave immediately if evacuation orders are given for
          your area.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
          immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas
          farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
        - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become
          overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous
          in places where surge water covers the Road.
        - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes,
          mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.
        - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks,
          boardwalks, and piers. A few small craft broken away from
          moorings.

* Flooding rain
    - latest local forecast:
        - peak rainfall amounts: additional around 1 inch

    - potential threat to life and property: potential for localized
      flooding rain
        - the flooding rain threat has remained nearly steady from
          the previous assessment.
        - Plan: emergency plans should include the potential for
          localized flooding from heavy rain.
        - Prepare: consider protective actions if you are in an area
          vulnerable to flooding.
        - Act: heed any flood watches and warnings.

    - Potential impacts: limited
        - 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.

* Tornado
    - latest local forecast:
        - situation is unfavorable for tornadoes

    - potential threat to life and property: tornadoes not expected
        - the tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Plan: tornadoes are not expected. Showers and thunderstorms
          with gusty winds may still occur.
        - Prepare: little to no preparations needed to protect
          against tornadoes at this time. Keep informed of the latest
          tornado situation.
        - Act: listen for changes in the forecast.

    - Potential impacts: little to none
        - little to no potential impacts from tornadoes.
