   Mesoscale Discussion 0244
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0656 PM CDT Thu Mar 14 2024

   Areas affected...Southeastern Indiana into portions of
   southwest/south-central Ohio

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 44...

   Valid 142356Z - 150100Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 44 continues.

   SUMMARY...An area of greater tornado potential is evident from
   southeast Indiana into southwestern Ohio over the next 1-3 hours.

   DISCUSSION...Three supercells from just east of Indianapolis to
   northwest of Columbus, OH have shown a rightward turn to the
   southeast. Surface flow remains backed in southwestern portions of
   Ohio. Considering the observed storm motion and regional VAD
   profiles, an area of greater tornado threat is evident from
   southeastern Indiana into southwestern Ohio. 850 mb winds are
   expected to increase this evening as well. Should storms remain
   discrete and surface wind backed, the environment would become more
   favorable in the next 1-3 hours.
