Areas affected...Central and southern South Carolina
Concerning...Tornado Watch 129...
Valid 032026Z - 032200Z
The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 129 continues.
SUMMARY...Primary severe threat including potential for damaging
wind, large hail and a couple of tornadoes will persist across
central SC next couple hours. Threat may spread into western part of
Wilmington NC county warning area after 21Z and eventually into WFO
CHS by early evening.
DISCUSSION...Cluster of storms with embedded supercells and bowing
segments are developing east and southeast through the moderately
unstable warm sector across central SC. Low-level winds have veered
to southwest which is limiting 0-1 km hodograph size, but effective
shear from 40-45 kt remains supportive of occasional supercell
structures. It appears as though the primary threat has transitioned
to isolated damaging wind and large hail, but a tornado or two
