   Mesoscale Discussion 0060

   Areas of southeastern MS...southern AL...the FL
   Panhandle...and southwest GA

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

   Valid 092256Z - 100100Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

   SUMMARY...The severe threat will continue spreading southeastward of
   WW14, though the localized and brief nature of the threat will
   likely preclude watch issuance.

   DISCUSSION...Scattered thunderstorms will continue spreading
   southeastward into parts of southeastern MS, southern AL, the FL
   Panhandle, and southwest GA over the next few hours, where a moist
   boundary-layer (lower 70s dewpoints) and southerly surface winds are
   contributing to moderate surface-based instability. VWPs across the
   pre-convective warm sector indicate favorable low-level hodographs,
   with 0-1 km SRH of 150-200 m2/s2 and 0-6 km bulk shear of 50-60
   knots. These factors may support a brief continuation of organized
   convection prior to being undercut, with a mix of supercell
   structures and linear segments possible. The primary risk will be
   isolated wind damage, though a brief tornado will also be possible
   with any discrete and longer-lived convection. At this time, a new
   watch is not anticipated owing to the localized and brief nature of
   the threat.
