   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 334

   SUMMARY...The severe threat across WW 334 continues, but will be
   more focused over the next hour or so across south-central Georgia
   where a more organized thunderstorm cluster will pose a severe wind

   DISCUSSION...Convection continues to percolate across much of
   southern AL into central/southern GA. Recent MRMS trends show that
   the clustered nature of the storms has limited storm longevity and
   organization thus far, though a few more intense updrafts remain
   evident in GOES IR imagery, suggesting that sporadic/isolated severe
   hail and damaging winds remain possible across the region. 

   A more focused/higher severe threat has materialized across far
   southern GA where cold pool amalgamation has resulted in a more
   organized cluster. Radar imagery from KVAX shows hints at horizontal
   convective rolls extending southwest to northeast aligned with the
   low-level wind. This feature suggests that a well-mixed, buoyant
   boundary layer remains in place immediately downstream of this
   cluster, and that low-level convergence should be enhanced on the
   southwestern flank of the cold pool, resulting in an increasingly
   southward propagation of the cluster. Consequently, the threat for
   damaging winds appears to be increasing across southern GA and
   potentially into far northern FL.
