   Mesoscale Discussion 0917
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0359 PM CDT Mon May 29 2017

   Areas affected...Portions of central/northeast GA into
   western/central SC and south-central NC

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 298...

   Valid 292059Z - 292300Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 298

   SUMMARY...The severe weather threat continues across much of WW 298,
   with damaging winds being the primary risk as storms develop and
   spread from west to east.  The counties across the western extent of
   this watch can be canceled, as the air mass has stabilized in the
   wake of the ongoing cluster of storms.

   DISCUSSION...At 2045Z, mosaic radar imagery indicated the main
   cluster of storms that had moved from AL into GA was now located
   from Cherokee, Cobb, and Fulton counties southward to Monroe County
   GA, while additional storms had developed farther to the south and
   east.  A midlevel impulse, likely attendant to the main cluster of
   storms, will move across the remainder of WW 298 late this afternoon
   into the early evening, with sufficient instability and strong bulk
   shear favoring additional strong to severe storms.  

   Meanwhile, objective analyses indicated convective overturning has
   stabilized the air mass in the wake of the ongoing cluster of storms
   in central/northern GA, suggesting counties in the wake of this main
   cluster should be able to be canceled early.
