   Areas affected...Eastern GA...SC

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 298...

   Valid 292330Z - 300030Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 298

   SUMMARY...Scattered severe thunderstorms will be concentrated
   primarily over the eastern half of WW298.

   DISCUSSION...An apparent weak short-wave trough has shifted to near
   the GA/SC border.  Deep convection is concentrated ahead of this
   feature with several severe storms located from Columbia County GA
   east into Richland County SC.  This activity is moving east at
   roughly 35kt and the more robust convection is likely producing
   large hail and locally damaging winds.  Greatest corridor of strong
   convection should extend along an axis from near AGS to FLo over the
   next few hours.

   If it appears thunderstorms will maintain their
   intensity/organization there may be a need for a WW downstream into
   portions of ILM CWA.
