DISCUSSION…THE WARM FRONT CONTINUES TO PROGRESS INLAND IN ADVANCE
OF A PRE-FRONTAL BAND OF STORMS ASSOCIATED WITH AN EJECTING MIDLEVEL
TROUGH. THOUGH LAPSE RATES ARE NOT PARTICULARLY STEEP…BOUNDARY
LAYER DEWPOINTS IN THE 68-70 F RANGE WILL SUPPORT SURFACE-BASED
BUOYANCY IN THE WARM SECTOR. VERTICAL SHEAR WILL BE STRONGEST ALONG
THE WARM FRONT…WHERE THE RISK FOR A COUPLE OF TORNADOES WILL BE
FOCUSED. OTHERWISE…AN ISOLATED TORNADO AND A FEW DAMAGING GUSTS
WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH THE BAND OF STORMS FARTHER TO THE S INTO THE
FL PANHANDLE THROUGH THE AFTERNOON.
