    DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
    ----------------------
    At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression
    Claudette was located near latitude 32.2 North, longitude 87.9 West.
    The depression is moving toward the northeast near 16 mph (26
    km/h). A turn toward the east-northeast is expected tonight and
    Sunday. On the forecast track, the system should move farther
    inland across portions of the southeast U.S. through Sunday night,
    and over the western Atlantic Ocean on Monday.

    Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 35 mph (55 km/h)
    with higher gusts. Claudette is expected to weaken a little more
    tonight, however, it is forecast to become a tropical storm again
    when it moves across the Carolinas Sunday night or early Monday.

    The estimated minimum central pressure based on surface
    observations is 1007 mb (29.74 inches).


    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

    Key messages for Claudette can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
    Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT3, WMO header WTNT43 KNHC,
    and on the web at https://urldefense.com/v3/__http://www.hurricanes.gov/graphics_at3.shtml?key_messages__;!!DZ3fjg!rVcPi003kbzVRIpMaaVr4ycW5XCdq4Qa2NApEHBqUPo139aYST8onYz3xXxJ07MmNUuCqI4O$
    .

    RAINFALL: Claudette is expected to produce additional rainfall
    totals of 3 to 6 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 8 inches
    across eastern Alabama, northern Georgia, the Florida Panhandle, and
    South and North Carolina. Flash, urban and small stream flooding
    impacts as well as new and renewed minor to isolated moderate river
    flooding are likely across these areas.

    The storm total rainfall is expected to be 5 to 10 inches with
    isolated 15 inch totals in southeast Louisiana, southern
    Mississippi, southern Alabama, and the western Florida panhandle.

    STORM SURGE: The combination of storm surge and the tide will
    cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising
    waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water could reach the
    following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if
    the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

    Cape Lookout, NC to NC/VA Border...1-3 ft

    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 possible in the watch area
    Sunday night and Monday.

    TORNADOES: A few tornadoes are possible this evening and tonight
    across southeast Alabama, the western Florida Panhandle, and
    southwest Georgia.
