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.
