Tornado Watch

Statement as of 1:35 PM EST on November 23, 2014

Expires 8:00 PM EST on November 23, 2014


The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

* Tornado Watch for portions of
southeast Alabama
the central and eastern Florida Panhandle
southwest Georgia
coastal waters

* effective this Sunday afternoon and evening from 135 PM until
800 PM EST.

* Primary threats include...
a couple tornadoes possible
scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible

The Tornado Watch area is approximately along and 90 statute
miles north and south of a line from 50 miles west southwest of
Dothan Alabama to 25 miles east southeast of Moultrie Georgia.
For a complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch
outline update (wous64 kwns wou8).

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Remember... a Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for
tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch
area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for
threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements
and possible warnings.


Discussion... the warm front continues to progress inland in advance
of a pre-frontal band of storms associated with an ejecting midlevel
trough. Though lapse rates are not particularly steep... boundary
layer dewpoints in the 68-70 f range will support surface-based
buoyancy in the warm sector. Vertical shear will be strongest along
the warm front... where the risk for a couple of tornadoes will be
focused. Otherwise... an isolated tornado and a few damaging gusts
will be possible with the band of storms farther to the S into the
FL Panhandle through the afternoon.

Aviation... tornadoes and a few severe thunderstorms with hail
surface and aloft to 0.5 inch. Extreme turbulence and surface
wind gusts to 60 knots. A few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to
500. Mean storm motion vector 24040.
