   Areas affected...Portions of southeastern AL into western GA

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 151...

   Valid 050038Z - 050215Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 151

   SUMMARY...Strong to severe/damaging wind gusts will remain the
   primary severe threat with a line of storms moving eastward this

   DISCUSSION...Radar imagery from KMXX and KEOX show enhanced
   low-level velocities associated with a QLCS moving across parts of
   southeastern AL into western GA. Scattered strong to damaging winds
   around 60 mph should continue to be the main severe threat in the
   short term with the northern segment of this line, which remains
   oriented more orthogonal to the west-southwesterly deep-layer flow.
   With the loss of daytime heating, the airmass downstream of this
   ongoing activity should gradually become less unstable. As a result,
   most short-term guidance suggests that a slow reduction in the
   overall intensity of the line should occur later this evening.
