   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0601
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0259 PM CDT WED MAY 14 2014

   AREAS AFFECTED...FAR NE MS...MIDDLE TN...NRN AL

   CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 153...

   VALID 141959Z - 142130Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 153
   CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...WIDELY SCATTERED...LOCALIZED SEVERE THREAT WILL CONTINUE
   ACROSS WW 153 THE NEXT FEW HOURS. DAMAGING WINDS WILL BE THE MAIN
   THREAT WITH STRONGER CELLS.

   DISCUSSION...WIDESPREAD CLOUDINESS AND CONVECTIVE OVERTURNING
   ASSOCIATED WITH ONGOING STORMS ACROSS THE WATCH AREA WILL LIKELY
   CONTINUE TO LIMIT STORM INTENSITY. FURTHERMORE...EARLY VORTICITY MAX
   PROVIDING DEEPER FORCING FOR ASCENT HAS LIFTED TO THE NORTH OF THE
   WATCH AREA. THIS ALSO HAS LIMITED ORGANIZATION/INTENSITY OF LINEAR
   CONVECTION ALONG THE SYNOPTIC COLD FRONT CURRENTLY MOVING INTO ERN
   MS/CENTRAL TN. THAT BEING SAID...MODEST SURFACE BASED INSTABILITY
   NEAR 1000-1500 J/KG COUPLED WITH STRONG DEEP LAYER SHEAR IN A VERY
   MOIST ENVIRONMENT SHOULD CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THUNDERSTORM
   DEVELOPMENT BOTH ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT. PW VALUES AOA
   1.50 INCHES WILL FURTHER ENHANCE THE POTENTIAL FOR A STRONG WET
   MICROBURST IN STRONGER/BETTER ORGANIZED CELLS.
