Urgent - Immediate Broadcast Requested Tornado Watch Number 857 Nws Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 720 AM EDT Sat Aug 23 2008

The Nws Storm Prediction Center Has Issued A Tornado Watch For Portions Of

Northern Florida Southern Georgia Coastal Waters

Effective This Saturday Morning And Afternoon From 720 AM Until 300 PM EDT.

Florida Counties Included Are:

Alachua, Citrus, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Hernando, Jefferson, Lafayette, Leon, Levy, Madison, Marion, Suwannee, Taylor, Wakulla.

Tornadoes... Hail To 0.5 Inch In Diameter... Thunderstorm Wind Gusts To 70 Mph... And Dangerous Lightning Are Possible In These Areas.

The Tornado Watch Area Is Approximately Along And 50 Statute Miles East And West Of A Line From 15 Miles East Northeast Of Moultrie Georgia To 50 Miles South Of Cross City Florida. For A Complete Depiction Of The Watch See The Associated Watch Outline Update (wous64 Kwns Wou7).

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... Showers/Storms Have Increased In Strength In The Past 90 Mins Or So Along Confluence Zone Extending From Just W Of Vld Sse To Near Tpa. This May Reflect Increased Ascent Along The Confluence Zone... And/Or Influx Of Richer Moisture Off The Far Ern Gulf As T.S. Fay Continues To Edge Wwd. Low Lvl Shear Decreases From N To S Along The Confluence Zone... But Appears Sufficient To Support Low Lvl Rotation With Any Semi-Discrete Cells As Far S As Citrus And Hernando Counties In FL. Given Increasing Moisture Inflow And Onset Of Modest Sfc Heating... Setup May Support Isold Tornadoes.
