   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 10...

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 10

   SUMMARY...Convection will continue to increase across the lower
   Mississippi Valley this evening. Attendant severe risk will also
   increase with it.

   DISCUSSION...Low-latitude short-wave trough ejecting across TX
   appears to be influencing the boundary layer downstream over the
   lower MS Valley. Latest diagnostic data suggests low-level
   confluence is sharpening across southeast LA into central MS and
   this is coincident with upward-evolving convection. With time the
   boundary will surge east and a corridor of frontal convection should
   advance across the lower MS Valley into western AL. While strong
   shear continues to favor some supercell development, convective mode
   may become more linear dominant, though embedded supercells are
   certainly possible.
