Mesoscale Discussion 1614
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1203 PM CDT Thu Nov 01 2018

   Areas affected...western Georgia...Florida Panhandle...eastern 

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 421...

   Valid 011703Z - 011900Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 421

   SUMMARY...Isolated severe wind gusts remain possible in association
   with a line of storms moving from eastern Alabama into western
   Georgia. Storms along the coastal Florida Panhandle may produce a
   severe wind gust as well.

   DISCUSSION...A broken line of storms currently stretches from the
   Al/GA/TN tri-state area southward along the AL/GA border and into
   the western FL Panhandle. Much of this activity has been relatively
   low-topped owing to weak instability, but strong lift along the
   leading outflow has been able to breach a weak inversion just above
   850 mb. Pockets of heating, as well as the northward advection of
   65-68 F dewpoints should maintain current instability levels of a
   few hundred J/kg MUCAPE. Some of the activity may not produce
   lightning, but gusty winds are likely along the line. A few surges
   of stronger wind gusts are possible to 40-50 kt. A brief/weak
   tornado cannot be ruled out, but the primary threat will be strong
   wind gusts.

Keep up the good work Steve, But I’m not getting notifications 

Are you on a computer? If so, at the top of this page is a button. In this image it''s telling me I've followed. Yours won't say that. If you click on the little down arrow...



A window should open up like this



Set it to "when new content is posted". 

On a phone it's going to look different, and the "follow" button is at the bottom of the page instead of the top. 

You can do this for a blog, or a blog post, a forum, or a forum post, etc. That way, you get notification for those specific things you want to be notified about. Once you follow and want to stop, do the same steps and click on the "Unfollow" button.
