   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0170
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   1040 PM CST TUE MAR 01 2016

   AREAS AFFECTED...SC MIDLANDS...SRN GA

   CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 34...

   VALID 020440Z - 020545Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 34
   CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...A QLCS FROM THE SC MIDLANDS THROUGH CNTRL/SRN GA SHOULD
   CONTINUE AN OVERALL DECAY DURING THE NEXT FEW HOURS. AN ADDITIONAL
   WW ISSUANCE IS UNLIKELY.

   DISCUSSION...LEADING EDGE OF A QLCS IS APPROACHING THE COLUMBIA SC
   AREA AND EXTENDS SWWD THROUGH THE HEART OF GA...WHERE IT BECOMES
   INCREASINGLY ILL-DEFINED. THE LEADING/NERN EXTENT OF THIS LINE
   CONTINUES TO OUTPACE SURFACE MOISTURE RETURN...LIKELY RESULTING IN
   SLIGHTLY ELEVATED CONVECTION ATOP A COMPARATIVELY DRY BOUNDARY LAYER
   CHARACTERIZED BY SURFACE DEW POINT DEPRESSIONS AROUND 15 DEG F.
   OVERALL RADAR/SATELLITE/LIGHTNING TRENDS INDICATE SUBSTANTIAL
   WEAKENING OF THE LINE DURING THE PAST HALF HOUR. THIS TREND IS
   LIKELY IRREVERSIBLE GIVEN THE DEARTH OF AVAILABLE BUOYANCY AND AS
   SUCH THE RISK FOR DAMAGING WIND GUSTS SHOULD FURTHER WANE OVERNIGHT.
