    Message Summary: ...multi-day heavy rainfall event likely unfolding for the central gulf coast region...
    Between this saturday and the middle of next week, a developing heavy rainfall pattern associated with both a tropical plume of moisture and potential gulf of mexico surface low development will bring very heavy to potentially excessive rainfall, at times, to the central gulf coast region. Current basin average rainfall forecasts during this period are forecast to range between 6-12 inches along the coastal counties of alabama and the western florida panhandle to 5-8" across interior portions of southwest and south central al and also interior southeast mississippi. This discounts localized higher rainfall totals. Despite there being still some uncertainty in the exact forecast track of a gulf of mexico surface low, the ingredients for very heavy rainfall will be in place during this rather prolonged time period. Current thinking is a continuous rain would overspread the region from the south on saturday as the gulf of mexico surface low further develops and moves northward. A more continuous rainfall continues through late sunday and potentially into monday. After monday, additional showers and thunderstorms would only add to flooding concerns as the surface low is forecast to stall to our west and slowly wind down. Also, as area rivers drain runoff towards the immediate coast from late weekend on, rainfall runoff will interact with already elevated coastal water levels to further complicate matters. Please realize, the above scenario discounts rainfall which may further soak soils beyond their current state even before the aforementioned more continuous rainfall begins on saturday. Confidence is high, if this amount of rainfall is realized, most of area rivers will easily experience moderate flooding, and in some cases major flooding. Please also realize, while flash flooding may come to an end, river flooding could very well extend days beyond that. A flash flood watch will likely be issued by late tomorrow or possibly very early friday morning. /23 jmm
