   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 91...

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 91

   SUMMARY...Severe risk continues locally across parts of central
   Florida -- within WW 91 -- and will gradually shift southward
   requiring new WW consideration across much of south Florida.

   DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop shows a band of storms sagging
   southward across central Florida, with occasionally stronger
   storms/convective segments noted.  As outflow associated with this
   band shifts steadily southward, the primary zone of severe risk will
   likewise shift south -- and eventually out of the current WW.

   Meanwhile, as the very moist south Florida airmass continues to
   warm/destabilize, additional/cellular development is occurring south
   of the main convective band.  Given sufficient shear across the
   area, a few of these storms could produce gusty winds and hail,
   prior to the arrival of storms from the north.  Given these trends,
   a new WW will likely be required in the next 60 to 90 minutes,
   across much of south Florida.
