Concerning...Tornado Watch 3...

Valid 192338Z - 200115Z

The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 3 continues.

SUMMARY...Damaging wind gusts and a tornado or two will remain
possible throughout Tornado Watch 3 for at least the next few hours.
Expansion in area may be needed into more of central GA and the
eastern FL Panhandle.

DISCUSSION...Well developed convective line continues to move
eastward at 40-45 kt. Northern portion of the line (currently near
CSG) has shown an increase in forward speed during the past hour or
so, signaling the development of stronger outflow and a relatively
higher threat for damaging wind gusts. Transient embedded rotation
has also been noted as a result of the this outflow surge. A few
cells ahead of the line have also shown some supercellular
characteristics, although the shallow and transient nature of these
updrafts has limited tornado development over the past hour. 

Overall, these trends (i.e. outflow surges within the line and
shallow supercells ahead of it) are expected to persist for at least
the next hour or two and may extend outside of the current watch
area, particularly across central GA and the western FL Panhandle.
