   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0205
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0554 PM CDT FRI APR 03 2015

   AREAS AFFECTED...MIDDLE TN

   CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 23...

   VALID 032254Z - 040000Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 23 CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...MODEST TORNADO POTENTIAL WILL CONTINUE AND LIKELY BE
   HIGHEST ACROSS MIDDLE TN OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS BEFORE A LOWERING
   OF TORNADO THREAT OCCURS AS STORMS MOVE EWD INTO ERN TN.

   DISCUSSION...SUBJECTIVE SURFACE ANALYSIS SHOWS AS A
   MOIST/INSTABILITY AXIS FROM NRN AL NEWD INTO MIDDLE TN AHEAD OF A
   BROKEN BAND OF ORGANIZED STORMS.  ALTHOUGH TEMPS ARE IN THE MID
   70S...LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE REMAINS RELATIVELY TEMPERED WITH DEWPOINTS
   IN THE MID 50S E OF BNA AND UPPER 50S OVER SRN MIDDLE TN. 
   NONETHELESS...A STRONG AND DEEP WLY WIND PROFILE WILL SUPPORT
   ORGANIZED STORMS INCLUDING SUPERCELL STRUCTURES.  ISOLD DMGG WINDS
   AND MARGINALLY SEVERE HAIL APPEAR TO THE PREDOMINATE THREAT...BUT A
   TORNADO OR TWO WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE WITH ANY LONGER-LIVED AND
   STRONGER CIRCULATION EMBEDDED WITHIN THE CONVECTIVE BAND.
