   Mesoscale Discussion 0368
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0736 PM CDT Sun Apr 12 2020

   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.
