   Mesoscale Discussion 0421
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1145 AM CDT Thu Apr 11 2024

   Areas affected...central Florida

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 104...

   Valid 111645Z - 111845Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 104 continues.

   SUMMARY...Severe/isolated tornado risk continues across WW 104.

   DISCUSSION...As prior severe convection shifts offshore over
   northeastern Florida, focus for severe weather is reorienting
   southwestward across north-central and west-central portions of the
   Peninsula.  Here, a band of storms -- including embedded rotating
   cells -- continues moving inland across the greater Tampa area,
   where embedded/somewhat transient low-level circulations have been
   observed via KTBW WSR-88D storm-relative velocity.  

   As modest heating is being hindered by deeper cloud cover,
   weak/additional destabilization should continue to support stronger
   storms, which will continue spreading west-to-east across central
   Florida.  Locally damaging wind gusts, and a couple of brief
   tornadoes, will continue to accompany these storms.
