   Mesoscale Discussion 0355
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0433 PM CDT Tue Apr 02 2024

   Areas affected...Eastern Tennessee and far western North Carolina.

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible 

   Valid 022133Z - 022300Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...60 percent

   SUMMARY...A tornado watch may be needed across eastern Tennessee and
   potentially into far western North Carolina.

   DISCUSSION...A supercell has moved east of watch 79 across eastern
   Tennessee. Additional storm development is questionable as
   widespread thunderstorms have developed to the west with anvil
   debris across much of eastern Tennessee. However, at least scattered
   supercell development remains possible through early evening. The
   MRX VWP currently shows less than 100 m2/s2 0-1km SRH with the
   stronger low-level jet to the west. This wind profile is expected to
   increase after 00Z as this low-level jet slowly moves east. A
   tornado watch will eventually be needed this evening, as low-level
   shear and storm coverage increases.
