   Mesoscale Discussion 0779
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0634 AM CDT Tue May 14 2024

   Areas affected...Southeast GA into extreme southern SC

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 241...

   Valid 141134Z - 141300Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 241 continues.

   SUMMARY...Some threat for damaging wind will spread northeastward
   this morning.

   DISCUSSION...A loosely organized storm cluster is moving quickly
   northeastward across southeast GA this morning, with rather strong
   winds noted not far above the surface from the KVAX radar.
   Unidirectional southwesterly flow aloft (as noted on the KVAX VWP)
   and weak to moderate downstream buoyancy may support maintenance of
   this storm cluster as it moves across southeast GA this morning.
   While lingering near-surface stability may temper the threat to some
   extent, some threat for isolated damaging wind may spread
   northeastward out of WW 241. The longevity of this cluster this
   morning remains uncertain, but trends will be monitored regarding
   the need for downstream watch issuance.
