   Areas affected...portions of extreme eastern Georgia into South
   Carolina and extreme southern North Carolina

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

   Valid 251803Z - 252000Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

   SUMMARY...Isolated damaging gusts and a couple instances of hail may
   accompany the stronger pulse storms through the afternoon. Given the
   expected sparse severe coverage, a WW issuance is not expected.

   DISCUSSION...To the east of the more organized thunderstorms over
   GA, a moist airmass continues to destabilize over SC into extreme
   southern NC with prolonged diurnal heating. Surface temperatures are
   approaching 90 F in spots, with surface dewpoints in the upper 60s F
   contributing to 1500 J/kg MLCAPE. Tropospheric flow fields (and thus
   deep-layer shear) are weak, so the overall severe threat should be
   sparse with pulse-cellular storms today, and a WW issuance not
   expected. Nonetheless, the available buoyancy will promote wet
   downbursts with isolated damaging gust potential and perhaps some
