HEAVY RAINFALL ACROSS PORTIONS OF FLORIDA, SOUTHEAST ALABAMA,
PORTIONS OF GEORGIA AND THE WESTERN CAROLINAS COULD LEAD TO FLASH,
URBAN, SMALL STREAM, AND ISOLATED RIVER FLOODING IMPACTS.

STORM SURGE: THE COMBINATION OF A DANGEROUS STORM SURGE AND THE

RISING WATERS MOVING INLAND FROM THE SHORELINE. THE WATER COULD

AREAS IF THE PEAK SURGE OCCURS AT THE TIME OF HIGH TIDE…

INDIAN PASS, FL TO STEINHATCHEE RIVER, FL…3-5 FT

AL/FL BORDER TO INDIAN PASS INCLUDING PENSACOLA BAY, CHOCTAWHATCHEE
BAY AND SAINT ANDREW BAY… 1-3 FT
YANKEETOWN, FL TO ARIPEKA, FL…1-3 FT

THE DEEPEST WATER WILL OCCUR ALONG THE IMMEDIATE COAST NEAR AND TO
THE EAST OF THE LANDFALL LOCATION, WHERE THE SURGE WILL BE
ACCOMPANIED BY LARGE WAVES. SURGE-RELATED FLOODING DEPENDS ON THE
RELATIVE TIMING OF THE SURGE AND THE TIDAL CYCLE, AND CAN VARY
GREATLY OVER SHORT DISTANCES. FOR INFORMATION SPECIFIC TO YOUR
AREA, PLEASE SEE PRODUCTS ISSUED BY YOUR LOCAL NATIONAL WEATHER
SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE.

WIND: TROPICAL STORM CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED IN THE TROPICAL STORM
