   AREAS AFFECTED...FL PANHANDLE

   CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY 

   VALID 281623Z - 281800Z

   PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...20 PERCENT

   SUMMARY...LOCALIZED SEVERE WIND GUSTS MAY PERSIST FOR A FEW MORE
   HOURS WITH PORTION OF A QLCS ALONG THE COAST. A PROGRESSIVELY STABLE

   A SMALL-SCALE BOWING SEGMENT. ABUNDANT DOWNSTREAM STRATIFORM
   PRECIPITATION AND WIDESPREAD CLOUDINESS HAS SLOWED DESTABILIZATION
   WITH SURFACE DEW POINTS ONLY IN THE LOWER 60S. BUOYANCY IS LIKELY TO
   REMAIN QUITE LIMITED WITH ERN EXTENT GIVEN NEAR-NEUTRAL LAPSE RATES
   AMIDST A SATURATED THERMODYNAMIC PROFILE. NEVERTHELESS...A LARGE
   VEERING WIND PROFILE SAMPLED IN KEVX VWP DATA ALONG WITH 30-40 KT
   FORWARD MOTION OF THE BOW COULD MAINTAIN A RISK FOR LOCALIZED SEVERE
   WIND GUSTS IN THE NEAR-TERM.
