   Areas affected...LA...Western MS

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 296...

   Valid 290216Z - 290315Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 296

   SUMMARY...Severe threat will shift south across WW296 over the next
   few hours.

   DISCUSSION...Slowly expanding MCS has propagated across the northern
   half of LA and the leading edge of this complex will soon shift east
   of the MS River.  This leading edge is oriented perpendicular to the
   mean flow aloft which could enhance damaging wind potential as it
   moves east, though instability is considerably weaker across MS than
   LA.  Trailing convection across central/western portions of the
   watch has now been undercut by outflow and marginally severe hail
   seems the primary threat with this elevated activity.
