   Mesoscale Discussion 0834
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0425 PM CDT Wed May 24 2017

   Areas affected...Western North Carolina...western into central South
   Carolina...much of Georgia...and northern Florida

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 262...263...

   Valid 242125Z - 242230Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 262, 263 continues.

   SUMMARY...Local temporal extensions of the ongoing watches will be
   coordinated with local offices shortly.

   DISCUSSION...The severe threat across WWs 262 and 263 has diminished
   some due to substantial low-level stabilization from previous
   convective overturning, although pockets of localized instability
   exist especially along a surface boundary on the western periphery
   of the discussion area at the time.  Deep shear profiles favor storm
   organization, while pockets of weak to moderate instability
   (particularly in southwestern Georgia and adjacent north Florida)
   will foster a damaging wind and large hail threat over the next 1-2
   hours.  Local temporal extensions (EXT) of portions of the ongoing
   watches will be coordinated with affected local offices in the next
   half hour.
