   Mesoscale Discussion 0176
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0923 PM CDT Thu Mar 12 2020

   Areas affected...Southern Arkansas

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 47...

   Valid 130223Z - 130400Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 47 continues.

   SUMMARY...Strong thunderstorms will focus across southern Arkansas
   this evening.

   DISCUSSION...Tornado threat appears to be waning across southern
   portions of ww47 as convection becomes more linear in nature ahead
   of sagging frontal zone. Hail indicators are also weakening which
   suggests overall updraft strength/storm mode is becoming less
   favorable for tornadoes. General trends favor convection shifting
   slowly south for the next few hours.
