   Mesoscale Discussion 0155
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1134 AM CST Wed Mar 04 2020

   Areas affected...Portions of southern GA and far northern FL

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 44...

   Valid 041734Z - 041900Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 44 continues.

   SUMMARY...An isolated severe threat should continue this afternoon
   across parts of southern Georgia and far northern Florida.

   DISCUSSION...A surface boundary continues to sag slowly southward
   across southern GA and parts of the FL Panhandle. This trend is
   expected to continue over the next couple of hours. Any appreciable
   severe threat will likely remain confined along/south of this
   boundary. There has been some diurnal heating across southern GA and
   vicinity, and a very moist low-level airmass is also present. Strong
   mid-level westerly flow will persist and potentially support
   organized storm structures. Low-level southwesterly winds are
   forecast to gradually strengthen this afternoon as an upper low over
   the southern Plains migrates slowly eastward. Strong to locally
   damaging winds should be the main threat, but an isolated tornado
   cannot be ruled out.
