   Mesoscale Discussion 1117
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0956 PM CDT Wed Jun 21 2017

   Areas affected...Southeastern Mississippi...Southern Alabama...and
   the western Florida Panhandle

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 362...

   Valid 220256Z - 220500Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 362 continues.

   SUMMARY...The tornado threat continues across WW 362.

   DISCUSSION...Bands of showers and thunderstorms (some exhibiting
   occasional strong rotation) continue to migrate northward across WW
   362.  In the near term, the highest tornado threat appears to be
   concentrated within a band of convection from about 30 miles south
   of Selma, Alabama southward to near Crestview, Florida.  Another
   newly developed band of convection is exhibiting signs of weak
   rotation just north of Biloxi, Mississippi.  Throughout the night,
   the overall strong shear/low CAPE regime will persist, with a
   continued potential for isolated tornadoes with scattered convection
   moving in from the north-central Gulf of Mexico.
