   THUNDERSTORMS HAVE RECENTLY INCREASED ACROSS SWRN GA INTO EXTREME
   ECNTRL AL...LARGELY DUE TO SWLY FEED OF MORE BUOYANT AIR ACROSS
   STEEPER LAPSE RATE PLUME OVER SERN AL/FL PANHANDLE.  THIS ACTIVITY
   ALSO APPEARS TO BE ENHANCED BY A SUBTLE BUT SIGNIFICANT MVC NEAR
   WHEATLAND/YELLOWSTONE COUNTIES IN ECNTRL AL.  BOTH VIS AND RADAR
   IMAGERY CLEARLY SUPPORT THIS FEATURE AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE GRADUALLY
   ORGANIZING AHEAD OF WHAT IS LIKELY A WEAK ZONE OF ENHANCED ASCENT. 
   GIVEN THE SHEAR OBSERVED...AND RATHER MOIST PROFILES...IT WOULD SEEM
   PROBABLE THAT A GRADUAL UPWARD TREND WILL CONTINUE WITH
   MULTI-CELLULAR UPDRAFTS EVOLVING INTO LINEAR STORM MODE THE MOST
   LIKELY OUTCOME.  DAMAGING WINDS ARE THE GREATEST THREAT AS
   CONVECTION SPREADS DOWNSTREAM.
