   Mesoscale Discussion 0156
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0150 PM CST Wed Mar 04 2020

   Areas affected...Portions of far southern GA and far northern FL

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 44...

   Valid 041950Z - 042045Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 44 continues.

   SUMMARY...Severe threat should continue to diminish this afternoon.

   DISCUSSION...Storms have struggled to intensify this afternoon
   across far southern GA and far northern FL. A southward-moving
   surface front has generally undercut multiple attempts at
   convection. Even though the overall environment will remain
   conditionally supportive of organized storms through the remainder
   of the afternoon, it appears that the lack of large-scale forcing
   for ascent is limiting the overall severe threat. This trend is
   expected to continue over the next several hours. Accordingly,
   remaining valid portions of Tornado Watch 44 may be canceled early
   as the boundary sags southward.
