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.
