   Mesoscale Discussion 0101
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1012 PM CST Tue Jan 24 2023

   Areas affected...Southeast Louisiana...southern Mississippi

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 28...29...

   Valid 250412Z - 250545Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 28, 29 continues.

   SUMMARY...Squall line will continue surging east along the central
   Gulf Coast.

   DISCUSSION...Surface dew points are gradually rising along the
   central Gulf Coast this evening with mid 60s now evident ahead of
   the squall line into southeast LA. This air mass should advance
   inland, just ahead of the convection, across southern MS/AL/western
   FL Panhandle. Most robust storms are occurring where greater
   buoyancy is noted and this should continue into the early-morning
   hours. Strongly-forced squall line will surge east of ww0028 in the
   next hour or so before spreading into western portions of ww0029. In
   addition, isolated showers/supercells continue to develop ahead of
   this line within the warm advection zone, and this activity will
   likely continue to generate over the northern Gulf, then spread
   inland as the overall complex shifts east.
