Areas affected...Southern AL...Far Western FL Peninsula

Concerning...Tornado Watch 49...

Valid 150227Z - 150400Z

The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 49 continues.

SUMMARY...Threat for damaging wind gusts and brief tornadoes
continues across Tornado Watch 49.

DISCUSSION...An increase in eastward progression has been noted
within the convective line over the past hour or so. Some modest
intensification has been noted as well with the overall convective
structure of the line improving gradually. Surface winds ahead of
the line have moderately strengthened with several surface
observations recently reporting southeasterly gusts over 20 kt.
Recent mesoanalysis as well as regional VAD data (from EVX, EOX and
MXX) show low-level shear and helicity remain favorable for damaging
wind gusts and embedded tornadoes. Downstream areas will be
monitored for possible watch issuance later this evening.
