SOUTHEAST MISSISSIPPI...AND THE WESTERN PORTION OF THE FLORIDA
PANHANDLE.

A WARM FRONT WILL MOVE NORTHWARD ACROSS THE AREA ON MONDAY MORNING.
AHEAD OF THIS FRONT SHOWERS AND POSSIBLY A FEW THUNDERSTORMS ARE
POSSIBLE...HOWEVER ANY THUNDERSTORMS AHEAD OF THE FRONT WILL REMAIN
BELOW SEVERE LIMITS. AS THE WARM FRONT LIFTS FURTHER TO THE

PREDICTION CENTER HAS OUTLOOKED THE CENTRAL GULF COAST WITH A SLIGHT
RISK OF SEVERE WEATHER ON MONDAY. STAY TUNED TO LATER OUTLOOKS ON
THIS DEVELOPING SEVERE WEATHER SITUATION.
