   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 272

   SUMMARY...Storms continue to gradually increase/organize into a
   small MCS over the AR/MO border region, with ongoing/local severe
   risk.  New/downstream WW appears likely to be necessary.

   DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop shows a cluster of storms that
   appears to be evolving into a small MCS over Howell County MO and
   adjacent Fulton and Izard Counties in Ar, and trailing west to
   Marion County AR.  

   With an amply unstable airmass extending east to/across the
   mid-Mississippi Valley, and given the convection's co-location with
   a weak/mobile center of cyclonic circulation evident in water vapor
   imagery, expect that storms -- and likely a local severe risk --
   will continue east of the existing watch.  As such, new WW appears
