   Areas affected...Central Florida Peninsula

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 6...

   Valid 071128Z - 071330Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 6 continues.

   SUMMARY...A marginal severe threat may linger across parts of the
   central Florida Peninsula over the next few hours. Additional
   weather watch issuance appears unlikely.

   DISCUSSION...The latest surface analysis shows a cold front moving
   southward across the north-central Florida Peninsula. Thunderstorms
   are ongoing along the front from Near Tampa Bay northeastward to
   near Dayton Beach. The RAP is estimating MLCAPE to the south of the
   front in the 1000 to 1500 J/kg range. In addition, 0-6 km shear is
   estimated to be in the 45 to 55 kt range. This should be enough to
   continue a marginal severe threat over the next few hours. A few
   marginally severe wind gusts could occur along the leading edge of
   the stronger parts of the line. A marginal tornado threat could also
   exist with cells that show rotation. However, the threat should be
   too isolated to warrant the issuance of another watch.
