   0529 AM CDT Sun May 28 2017

   Areas affected...portions of west-central and central Georgia

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 291...

   Valid 281029Z - 281230Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 291

   SUMMARY...Severe risk continues across eastern portions of WW 291,
   and may spread east of the watch with time, where local watch
   extension in area may be needed.

   DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop shows a bowing cluster of
   strong/severe storms which have just moved through the Atlanta metro
   area, moving east-southeast at around 50 kt.  With the storms
   tracking coincident with the northeastern fringe of sufficient
   mixed-layer CAPE for vigorous convection, expect storms -- and
   associated risk for damaging winds and hail -- to continue over the
   next few hours.

   Per extrapolation of the bowing segment downstream based on
   currently observed motion, storms will begin to exit the current
   eastern edge of the watch over the next hour or so.  Presuming
   storms remain organized/severe as currently anticipated, downstream
   expansion of the watch in area may be required.
