   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1254
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0909 PM CDT MON JUL 11 2016

   AREAS AFFECTED...CNTRL MN

   CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 374...

   VALID 120209Z - 120315Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 374 CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...THE POTENTIAL FOR A BRIEF TORNADO...STRONG WIND
   GUSTS...AND MARGINALLY SVR HAIL CONTINUES WITH DEVELOPING TSTMS
   ALONG/S OF A STALLED FRONT ACROSS CNTRL MN. THESE THREATS SHOULD
   GRADUALLY DECREASE THROUGH 03Z...AND A NEW WW IS NOT CURRENTLY
   ANTICIPATED.

   DISCUSSION...LATEST SFC OBS SHOW A WARM FRONT HAS NEARLY STALLED
   ACROSS CNTRL MN...AS PERSISTENT AREA OF CONVECTION HAS REINFORCED
   COOL TEMPERATURES/OUTFLOW TO THE N. MORE RECENTLY...DEVELOPING TSTMS
   ACROSS CNTRL MN HAVE OCCASIONALLY EXHIBITED ROTATION...AND A TORNADO
   OR TWO REMAIN POSSIBLE GIVEN STRONG LOW-LEVEL WIND FIELDS OBSERVED
   IN MPX VWP DATA. HOWEVER...TSTMS ARE DEVELOPING NEAR THE STALLED
   FRONT AND QUICKLY BECOMING ELEVATED AS THEY MOVE NWD...WITH A
   LIMITED SPATIOTEMPORAL WINDOW FOR A TORNADO THREAT. RECENT
   CONVECTIVE TRENDS SUGGEST THIS THREAT WILL BE CONFINED TO ERN
   PORTIONS OF TORNADO WATCH 374 /N OF THE MINNEAPOLIS AREA/ FOR THE
   NEXT HR OR SO...BUT WITH HEAVY RAIN BECOMING THE DOMINANT THREAT...A
   NEW WW IS NOT CURRENTLY ANTICIPATED.
