   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 239...

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 239

   SUMMARY...Severe threat will shift east along the central Gulf Coast
   this evening. Damaging winds are the primary risk.

   DISCUSSION...Well-organized MCS has matured along the central Gulf
   Coast early this evening. MCV appears to be embedded within the
   larger precip shield near the LA/MS border south of Natchez.
   Early-day thunderstorm complex that spread along the northeast Gulf
   Coast has advanced into the northern FL Peninsula and weakened, but
   trailing outflow and rain-cooled boundary layer has stabilized much
   of the FL Panhandle into southern AL. As the leading edge of the MCS
   surges east into this air mass there should be some propensity for
   weakening as it encounters a less favorable environment. Until then,
   damaging winds can be expected with the surging squall line.

   Given the expected weakening, current thinking is a new watch may
   not be warranted.
