   Areas affected...Southeast Alabama...Southwest Georgia...Florida

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 84...

   Valid 310854Z - 311100Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 84 continues.

   SUMMARY...A threat for damaging wind gusts, isolated large hail and
   a tornado or two will continue early this morning across parts of
   southeast Alabama, southwest Georgia and the Florida Panhandle. New
   watch issuance will need be to considered to the east of the current

   DISCUSSION...Latest mosaic radar imagery shows an organized
   convective line extending from near Dothan, Alabama extending
   north-northeastward to Columbus, Georgia. A shortwave trough with a
   band of large-scale ascent is located over far southwest Georgia,
   evident on water-vapor imagery. This feature will move northeastward
   this morning into south-central Georgia providing support for
   continued thunderstorm development. In addition, the WSR-88D VWP out
   of Valdosta, Georgia has 0-6 km shear near 65 kt with a looped
   hodograph. This will be favorable for supercells embedded in the
   line with a potential for tornadoes. These storms could also produce
   wind damage and isolated large hail, especially with segments that
   obtain bowing structure.  The severe threat should continue through
   daybreak. New weather watch issuance may become necessary to the
   east of WW 84.
