Areas affected...southeast Mississippi/central and southern Alabama
Concerning...Tornado Watch 110...
Valid 130036Z - 130200Z
The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 110 continues.
SUMMARY...Severe/tornado risk continues across WW 110.
DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop shows a couple of rotating cells
moving east-northeastward across the northwestern corner of the WW
at this time -- i.e. Greene/Sumter County area in Alabama. The
broader band of convection that includes these storms extends
south-southwestward into eastern Louisiana, where a few
well-organized storms are occurring. This convection will spread
into western portions of WW 110 over the next hour -- sustained by
an axis of 1500 to 2000 J/kg mixed-layer CAPE over the southwestern
corner of Alabama. Given the background kinematic environment that
remains strongly supportive of supercells, severe risk -- including
potential for tornadoes -- continues.
