Hurricane Ian remains a MAJOR HURRICANE as it moves north across the southeastern Gulf of Mexico. Ian is expected to turn more to the north-northeast by tomorrow before approaching the west coast of the Florida peninsula. Surf will build to 3-4 feet tomorrow with a HIGH risk of rip currents along the Alabama and northwest Florida beaches tomorrow through at least Friday night. Expect a prolonged period of gusty northerly winds tomorrow through Friday, especially near the coast with sustained winds of 20-30 mph and occasional gusts to 40 mph. Gusts to gale force are expected across the Gulf waters late tonight through Thursday. Strong northerly winds will also lead to low water levels of 1-2 feet below normal across Mobile Bay during periods of low tide Wednesday through Friday. Continue to check your local NWS Mobile webpage, local NWS Mobile Tropical webpage and the National Hurricane Center webpage for important forecast updates. For more information, go to our Facebook and Twitter pages or listen to NOAA Weather Radio.
A combination of strong northerly winds, low relative humidity, and dry fuels will contribute to extreme fire behavior area-wide on Wednesday. Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly. Outdoor burning is NOT recommended.
Windy conditions ramp up late tonight and will persist through Wednesday evening along the coast due to the gradient between Hurricane Ian in the Gulf of Mexico and high pressure building into the area behind yesterday's cold front. Expect northerly to northeasterly winds of 20-30mph along the coast with gusts up to 40mph. Strong winds can make driving and boating difficult (especially high profile vehicles). Secure loose objects.
Frequent gusts to gale force expected across the Mississippi Sound, southern Mobile Bay, and Gulf waters out to 60 nautical miles late this evening until Thursday evening. Mariners should alter plans to avoid these hazardous conditions. Remain in port, seek safe harbor, alter course, and/or secure the vessel for severe conditions.
