   Areas affected...the eastern FL panhandle into parts of northern FL

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 14...

   Valid 212103Z - 212200Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 14 continues.

   SUMMARY...Occasional strong wind gusts may continue across the watch
   area and perhaps into parts of northern FL. The overall severe
   threat appears to be diminishing however, and a downstream watch is
   not expected at this time.

   DISCUSSION...Storms will continue to slowly progress east through
   the remainder of the afternoon. Some gusty winds will be possible
   given strong flow just off the surface, but overall severe threat
   appears to be diminishing for now. Latest mesoanalysis indicates
   weak instability with cloud cover resulting in at least weak
   inhibition. Additionally, deep layer forcing for ascent is rather
   weak as initial shortwave impulse driving convection early today is
   lifting northeast into the central Appalachians at this time. A
   downstream watch is not expected, but trends will continue to be
