   Mesoscale Discussion 0336

   1126 PM CDT Mon Apr 01 2024

   Areas affected...portions of central Missouri into southwestern

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 71...

   Valid 020426Z - 020600Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 71 continues.

   SUMMARY...The severe threat continues across Tornado Watch 71.
   Damaging gusts and a few QLCS tornadoes remain a concern over the
   next few hours, particularly with any circulations that can interact
   with a boundary draped across central MO.

   DISCUSSION...A QLCS is progressing across southwestern into central
   MO and is interacting with a quasi-stationary boundary left behind
   by earlier storms. Multiple mesovortices have developed along the
   intersection of the QLCS and the aforementioned boundary, and this
   behavior is expected to continue over the next few hours. Damaging
   gusts may also accompany bowing segments associated with the QLCS.
   Elevated supercells behind the boundary are also in progress to the
   west the St. Louis metro area, and these storms may pose a continued
   severe hail/wind risk as well.
