   Mesoscale Discussion 0228
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1057 PM CDT Fri Apr 06 2018

   Areas affected...Southeast TX...Southern LA...Southern MS

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 38...

   Valid 070357Z - 070530Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 38

   SUMMARY...Gusty winds and some hail threat will spread across
   northern portions of ww38 over the next few hours.

   DISCUSSION...Extended line of strong storms is propagating south at
   roughly 15kt...currently extending from west-central portions of AL,
   west-southwest across northern portions of ww38 into central TX.
   This squall line appears to have slowed its forward motion a bit
   over the last few hours but an expanding precip shield should
   encourage this MCS to continue its southward motion. Gusty winds are
   the primary threat; although, MRMS data suggests the most robust
   updrafts may still produce some hail.
