   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 84
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1225 AM EDT Thu Mar 31 2022

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Eastern Alabama
     Florida Panhandle
     Western Georgia

   SUMMARY...The severe storm/tornado risk will shift
   east-northeastward across the region through the pre-dawn hours. The
   most intense storms and tornado risk will likely be focused across
   southeast Alabama, southwest Georgia, and the Florida Panhandle
   through sunrise, although some severe/tornado potential may exist as
   far north as northeast Alabama and northwest Georgia given the very
   strong low-level shear/helicity.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 45 statute miles
   east and west of a line from 30 miles east northeast of Gadsden AL
   to 40 miles southeast of Panama City FL. For a complete depiction of
   the watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS
   WOU4).

   area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for
   threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements
   and possible warnings.
