   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1878
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0928 PM CDT MON SEP 03 2012
   
   AREAS AFFECTED...ERN MS...WRN AL
   
   CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 612...
   
   VALID 040228Z - 040330Z
   
   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 612 CONTINUES.
   
   SUMMARY...THE THREAT FOR DAMAGING WINDS AND A BRIEF TORNADO OR TWO
   CONTINUES ACROSS THE WATCH AREA FOR THE NEXT HOUR OR TWO.
   HOWEVER...WANING INSTABILITY RESULTANT FROM BOUNDARY LAYER COOLING
   AND DECOUPLING SHOULD PROMOTE A DOWNWARD TREND IN CONVECTIVE
   ACTIVITY AND AN INCREASINGLY MARGINAL SEVERE THREAT. THIS DOWNWARD
   TREND IS EXPECTED TO PRECLUDE ANY DOWNSTREAM WW ISSUANCE.
   
   DISCUSSION...ACTIVITY ACROSS THE SRN PART OF THE WATCH AREA HAS
   EXITED THE WATCH AREA AND REMAINS SUB-SEVERE. A FEW STRONG WIND
   GUSTS ARE POSSIBLE BUT MOST OF THIS ACTIVITY HAS WEAKENED. 
   
   ACTIVITY ACROSS CNTRL PORTIONS OF THE WATCH /W-CNTRL AL/ EXHIBITED
   SOME SLOW FORWARD-PROPAGATION TO THE SW BUT DID NOT BECOME ORGANIZED
   INTO A LINEAR MCS. INSTEAD...NUMEROUS CELL MERGERS PROMOTED BRIEF
   UPDRAFT INTENSIFICATION/ROTATION WITH VERY HEAVY RAINFALL AND SOME
   STRONG WINDS. EXPECT A SIMILAR TREND TO CONTINUE...ESPECIALLY ACROSS
   PICKENS...TUSCALOOSA...AND GREENE COUNTIES WHERE A WEAK CONVECTIVE
   LINE IS MOVING SWD AND WILL LIKELY INTERSECT THE ONGOING ACTIVITY
   ACROSS THE AREA. BOUNDARY LAYER COOLING SHOULD PROMOTE A GRADUAL
   WEAKENING TREND WITH THE PRIMARY THREATS OF DAMAGING WINDS AND VERY
   HEAVY RAINFALL. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS RESULTING FLASH FLOOD
   POTENTIAL MENTIONED IN SPC MCD 1875 REMAIN LARGELY UNCHANGED WITH A
   DISPLACEMENT SWWD INTO THE COUNTIES MENTIONED ABOVE. CONVECTIVE
   TRENDS WILL BE MONITORED BUT A DOWNSTREAM WATCH IS NOT CURRENTLY
   ANTICIPATED.
