QUITE AN ACTIVE AFTERNOON OUT THERE AS THE MAIN WARM FRONT HAS
LIFTED WELL NORTH OF THE AREA...WITH A FEW FAIRLY DISTINCTIVE
BOUNDARIES SLIDING THROUGHOUT THE AREA. MAIN FOCUS WITH THE
FORECAST REMAINS SEVERE WEATHER AND ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SEVERE
STORMS. CURRENT SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
10 PM.

ACROSS THE NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE WATCH...STORMS MAY BECOME
SOMEWHAT ELEVATED AS BOUNDARY LAYER INHIBITION INCREASES AS
NOCTURNAL COOLING ENSUES. THIS WILL RESULT IN A DIMINISHING WIND
THREAT BUT...STEEP MIDLEVEL LAPSE RATES AND SUFFICIENT INSTABILITY
WILL ALLOW FOR A CONTINUED HAIL THREAT THROUGH ABOUT 02Z-03Z FROM
TCL AND BHM IN AL...EAST/SOUTHEAST TOWARD FFC AND MCN IN GA.

OVERALL ACTIVE PATTERN REMAINS POSSIBLE THROUGH THE REST OF THE
