   ...THERE IS A MDT RISK OF SVR TSTMS LATE THIS AFTN/EVE ACROSS A
   LARGE PART OF CNTRL/SRN GA AND NRN FL....
   
   ...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS SURROUNDING THE MDT RISK AREA
   ACROSS THE MID/SOUTH ATLANTIC COAST STATES....
   
   ....EASTERN STATES...
   LATEST WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SEEMS TO SUGGEST ANOTHER STRONG JET
   STREAK IS DEVELOPING/DIGGING UPSTREAM OF BASE OF HIGH AMPLITUDE
   SOUTHERN BRANCH TROUGH AS IT SHIFTS EAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI
   VALLEY...MUCH AS FORECAST BY MODELS. THIS WILL CONTRIBUTE TO
   SOUTHEASTWARD AMPLIFICATION OF UPPER TROUGH THROUGH THE SOUTHEAST
   STATES BY LATE TONIGHT...WITH TROUGH AXIS PROGGED TO TAKE ON AN
   INCREASINGLY NEGATIVE TILT.
   
   WITH BOUNDARY LAYER STILL IN THE PROCESS OF MODIFYING EAST OF THE
   APPALACHIANS...AND STRONGER MID-LEVEL COOLING STILL LAGGING TO THE
   WEST OF SURFACE WARM SECTOR...CONSIDERABLE UNCERTAINTY EXISTS
   CONCERNING POTENTIAL MAGNITUDE OF DESTABILIZATION FROM THE CAROLINAS
   NORTHWARD THROUGH THE MID ATLANTIC COAST STATES.  HOWEVER...
   DEEPENING MOIST BOUNDARY LAYER OVER THE NORTHEAST GULF OF MEXICO
   SHOULD ADVECT INLAND ACROSS NORTHERN FLORIDA INTO SOUTHERN GEORGIA
   LATE THIS AFTERNOON/EVENING.  THIS WILL OCCUR BENEATH INCREASINGLY
   STRONG AND DIFLUENT MID/UPPER FLOW FIELD...WHICH WILL CONTINUE TO
   SUPPORT RISK FOR SUPERCELLS WITHIN AND JUST AHEAD OF DEVELOPING
   SQUALL LINE.  GIVEN PRESENCE OF AT LEAST WEAK BOUNDARY LAYER BASED
   INSTABILITY IN THE PRESENCE OF STRONGLY SHEARED ENVIRONMENT WITH
   LARGE LOW-LEVEL HODOGRAPHS...TORNADO THREAT SHOULD INCREASE LATE
   THIS AFTERNOON WITH POTENTIAL FOR ISOLATED STRONG TORNADOES.
   
   FATHER NORTH...STRONGER SURFACE PRESSURE FALLS ARE FORECAST TO SHIFT
   THROUGH THE LEE OF THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS BY EARLY EVENING...
   INTO NORTHERN MID ATLANTIC COASTAL AREAS BY 12Z SATURDAY MORNING. 
   THIS SUGGESTS CONTINUING LIKLIHOOD OF INLAND ADVECTION OF LOW-LEVEL
   MOISTURE...AND DESTABILIZATION SUFFICIENT FOR VIGOROUS CONVECTIVE
   DEVELOPMENT SEEMS PROBABLE.  A LARGE SQUALL LINE IS EXPECTED TO
   EVENTUALLY EVOLVE...BEFORE SPREADING OFF ATLANTIC COASTAL AREAS
   LATER TONIGHT. EMBEDDED WITHIN STRONG 40 TO 50 KT MEAN
   ENVIRONMENTAL FLOW...MOST LIKELY SEVERE THREAT SEEMS TO BE DAMAGING
   WIND GUSTS...BUT SHEAR PROFILES WILL ALSO SUPPORT POTENTIAL FOR
   ISOLATED TORNADOES.
