   Mesoscale Discussion 0145
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0100 PM CST Sun Mar 03 2019

   Areas affected...east-central AL

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 7...

   Valid 031900Z - 031930Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 7 continues.

   SUMMARY...Strong tornado potential appears to be maximizing over
   east-central AL through 3pm CST.

   DISCUSSION...A mature supercell located near Montgomery is favorably
   located within a region of maximized surface pressure falls (3-4mb
   per 2 hours) immediately east/southeast of the surface low.  KMXX
   VAD shows 500 m2/s2 0-1km SRH when accounting for the observed
   Montgomery County supercell's storm motion.  Given the ample
   buoyancy and intense shear profile in place, it appears
   tornadogenesis will likely occur within the next 30-60 minutes with
   the possibility of a strong tornado occurring.
