   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0258 PM CDT THU MAR 24 2016

   AREAS AFFECTED...SERN AL...FL PANHANDLE

   CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 54...

   VALID 241958Z - 242200Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 54 CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...A LINE OF SEVERE STORMS IS LIKELY TO CONTINUE EWD TOWARD
   SWRN GA BY LATE AFTERNOON AND POSSIBLY AFFECTING THE TALLAHASSEE
   AREA BY EVENING. DAMAGING WINDS WILL BE THE MOST LIKELY SEVERE
   THREAT WITH AN ISOLATED TORNADO POSSIBLE.

   DISCUSSION...A LINE OF STORMS CURRENTLY EXTENDS FROM S CNTRL AL INTO
   THE NRN GULF OF MEXICO...WITH MOST INTENSE BOWING ECHO OVER S CNTRL
   AND SERN AL. THIS BOW WAS MOVING AT AROUND 50 MPH WITH OTHER
   PORTIONS OF THE LINE NEAR THE COAST MOVING EWD AT AROUND 35 MPH.
   RADAR OBSERVATIONS ALSO INDICATE SPORADIC SEVERE VELOCITIES EMBEDDED
   WITHIN THE LINE.

   CURRENTLY RELATIVELY DRY AIR EXISTS OVER GA AND PORTIONS OF NRN
   FL...BUT SLY FLOW SHOULD ALLOW DEWPOINTS AND INSTABILITY TO RISE
   INTO THE MID TO UPPER 60S F AHEAD OF THE ONGOING STORMS...WITH
   SUFFICIENT FLOW TO MAINTAIN AN ONGOING THREAT.
