   Mesoscale Discussion 0349
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1225 PM CDT Tue Apr 02 2024

   Areas affected...Parts of western/middle Tennessee into
   south-central Kentucky

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 75...

   Valid 021725Z - 021930Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 75 continues.

   SUMMARY...Ongoing convection in Middle Tennessee may intensify as it
   ingests increasingly unstable parcels. Additional convection moving
   northeast out of northern Mississippi may also move into WW 75.

   DISCUSSION...Convection near Nashville has generally been
   disorganized over the past hour. Heating to its east has been muted
   on account of cloud cover/anvil debris. To its south/southeast,
   greater heating has occurred and temperatures are in the low/mid 70s
   F. Some intensification of this activity is possible. An increase in
   low-level hodograph curvature is expected through the afternoon
   which will continue to promote a risk of tornadoes in addition to
   large hail and damaging winds.

   Farther west, in the wake of morning convection, some broken cloud
   cover is allowing surface heating. As the airmass tries to recover,
   convection in northern Mississippi may intensify as it moves
   northeast and be capable of a similar tornado, large hail, and wind
   gusts threat.
