instructions from local officials.

A Hurricane Warning means that hurricane conditions are expected

preparations difficult or dangerous.  Preparations to protect life
and property should be rushed to completion.

A Storm Surge Watch means there is a possibility of life-
threatening inundation, from rising water moving inland from the
coastline, in the indicated locations during the next 48 hours.

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1000 PM CDT (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Marco was 
located by an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter plane near latitude 
26.8 North, longitude 87.6 West. Marco is moving toward the 
north-northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h). A continued 
north-northwestward motion is possible tonight, but a turn toward 
the northwest is expected by Monday morning. Marco is forecast to 
approach the coast of Louisiana by Monday afternoon, and then turn 
westward and move near or over the coast through Tuesday.

Data from the Hurricane Hunter plane indicate that maximum sustained 
winds have decreased to near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts. 
Fluctuations in intensity are possible during the next 24 hours, but 
Marco is forecast to weaken rapidly by early Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure based on data from the 
reconnaissance aircraft is 1000 mb (29.53 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
STORM SURGE:  The combination of a dangerous 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 Mouth of the Mississippi River...4-6 ft
Mouth of the Mississippi River to Ocean Springs MS including Lake
Borgne...3-5 ft
Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas...2-4 ft
Intracoastal City LA to Morgan City LA...2-4 ft
Sabine Pass to Intracoastal City...1-3 ft
Ocean Springs MS to the AL/FL Border including Mobile Bay...1-3 ft

The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast in areas of
onshore winds, where the surge will be accompanied by large and
dangerous waves.  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:  Hurricane conditions are still possible within the hurricane
warning area by midday Monday, with tropical storm conditions
likely by midday Monday. Tropical storm conditions are possible
within the tropical storm watch area on Monday, and hurricane
conditions are possible within the hurricane watch areas late
Monday.

RAINFALL:  Marco is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations 
of 3 to 5 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 10 inches across 
portions of the northeast and north-central Gulf coast through 
Tuesday.  This rainfall may result in areas of flash, urban and 
small stream flooding along the area.

SURF:  Swells generated by Marco are likely to affect portions of
the northern Gulf Coast for the next couple of days. These swells
are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.

TORNADOES:  Isolated tornadoes are possible across southeast
Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama, and the Florida
Panhandle Monday and Monday night.
