   1050 PM CDT Wed May 08 2024

   Areas affected...northern Alabama...southeastern
   Tennessee...southwestern North Carolina...northern Georgia...and
   northwestern South Carolina

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 214...

   Valid 090350Z - 090515Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 214 continues.

   SUMMARY...Risk for severe storms -- including tornadoes -- continues
   across parts of the Tennessee Valley and southern Appalachians.

   DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop continues to indicate widespread
   strong/severe storms -- including at least a handful of supercells
   moving eastward across the northern Alabama/northern Georgia
   vicinity, and into far western portions of the Carolinas.  Several
   well-organized supercells are ongoing, each accompanied by potential
   for tornadoes.  Hail in excess of severe levels is also indicated,
   with locally strong/damaging gusts also expected.  A less-unstable
   airmass exists with eastward extent into North Carolina, though some
   severe risk may persist for at least a few more hours farther south
   from northeastern Alabama to northwestern South Carolina.
