   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0329
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0440 PM CDT FRI APR 01 2016

   AREAS AFFECTED...SERN GA...SRN SC...FAR NERN FL

   CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 75...

   VALID 012140Z - 012245Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 75 CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...RISK FOR A BRIEF TORNADO OR TWO AND ISOLATED DAMAGING
   WINDS WILL REMAIN CONFINED TO THE ERN PORTION OF WW 75 /MAINLY OVER
   THE GA COASTAL PLAIN/. MONITORING FOR A LOW PROBABILITY OF
   DOWNSTREAM WW ISSUANCE OVER COASTAL SC.

   DISCUSSION...QLCS EXTENDS FROM BULLOCH COUNTY GA TO JEFFERSON COUNTY
   FL AS OF 2130Z...WITH SCATTERED SEA BREEZE CONVECTION DOWNSTREAM
   ACROSS PARTS OF GA COASTAL PLAIN INTO NERN FL. MOST INTENSE ACTIVITY
   IS CENTERED WITHIN THE QLCS APPROACHING BACON/WARE COUNTY GA WHICH
   HAS HAD TRANSIENT MESOVORTICES DURING THE PAST HOUR. VAX VWP DATA
   SAMPLED THE STRONGEST OF LOW-LEVEL SHEAR /0-1 KM VALUES OF 30-35 KT/
   WITHIN THIS REGION WHICH WILL FAVOR A CONTINUED RISK FOR A BRIEF
   TORNADO AND ISOLATED DAMAGING WINDS. ALONG THE COASTAL
   PLAIN...LOW-LEVEL SHEAR IS MODEST PER JAX/CLX VWP DATA...BUT SHOULD
   STRENGTHEN TO SOME EXTENT AS THE QLCS APPROACHES. THE MOST FAVORABLE
   CAPE/SHEAR ENVIRONMENT SPACE SHOULD EXIST OVER THE SERN GA AREA
   THROUGH 00Z.
