DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the disturbance was centered near
latitude 28.9 North, longitude 90.9 West. The system is moving
toward the north near 13 mph (20 km/h).  A turn toward the 
north-northeast is expected later tonight, with a turn toward the 
east-northeast expected by Saturday night or Sunday.  On the 
forecast track, the system should moved inland over Louisiana 
during the next several hours, then move across portions of the 
Gulf coast and southeastern states through the weekend.
 
Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts.
There is still a high chance the system will become a tropical or 
subtropical storm through Saturday morning while the center is over 
or near water.  The system is expected to begin weakening Saturday 
afternoon as it moves farther inland.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.
 
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 km)
mainly to the east of the center.  Several oil rigs of off the 
coast of southeastern Louisiana have recently reported sustained 
winds of 40-45 mph (65-70 km/h).
 
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb (29.74 inches).
 
 
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for Potential Tropical Cyclone Three can be found in
the Tropical Cyclone Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT3,
WMO header WTNT43 KNHC, and on the web at
www.hurricanes.gov/graphics_at3.shtml?key_messages.
 
RAINFALL: The potential tropical cyclone is expected to produce 
rainfall totals of 5 to 10 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 
15 inches across portions of the Central Gulf Coast. Considerable 
flash, urban and small stream flooding impacts as well as new and 
renewed minor to isolated moderate river flooding are likely. 

As the system continues to lift northeast through the weekend, heavy 
rain will expand across the interior Southeast and western 
Carolinas, resulting in rainfall totals of 3 to 6 inches with 
isolated maximum amounts of 8 inches. Flash, urban, small stream and 
isolated minor river flooding impacts are possible. 
 
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...
 
Morgan City, LA to Okaloosa/Walton County Line, FL...2-3 ft
Lake Borgne and Mobile Bay...2-3 ft
Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas...1-2 ft
Okaloosa/Walton County Line, FL to Panama City, FL...1-2 ft
Pensacola Bay, Choctawhatchee Bay, and Saint Andrew Bay...1-2 ft
Cameron, LA to Morgan City, LA...1-2 ft
Vermilion Bay...1-2 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 should continue along the coast in
the warning area through Saturday.
 
TORNADOES: A few tornadoes are possible through Saturday across 
southeast Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama, and the 
western Florida Panhandle into southwest Georgia.
