   Mesoscale Discussion 1124
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0308 PM CDT Thu Jun 22 2017

   Areas affected...North Georgia

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

   Valid 222008Z - 222145Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

   SUMMARY...Mini-supercells with a threat of a brief tornado or two
   will continue this afternoon. Limited coverage and magnitude of the
   threat makes watch issuance unlikely.

   DISCUSSION...Mini-supercell development has recently taken place
   across north Georgia, just to the northwest of Atlanta. While
   low-level flow is not quite as strong as areas further west, a very
   moist boundary layer, modest instability, and favorably veering
   low-level wind profiles will continue to support the development of
   small rotating cells through the afternoon. The greatest threat will
   likely be near and just north of a diffuse surface boundary across
   north Georgia, where surface winds are backed to more of an
   east-southeasterly direction. A tornado or two will be possible as
   these small cells interact with the surface boundary.
