   Mesoscale Discussion 1138
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0428 PM CDT Wed Jun 19 2019

   Areas affected...northwest into north-central Tennessee...western
   into central Kentucky

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 400...

   Valid 192128Z - 192330Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 400

   SUMMARY...The severe threat continues across Severe Thunderstorm
   Watch 0400. Damaging wind gusts remain the primary threat, with a
   few instances of marginally severe hail also possible. Storms may
   propagate/develop east of the current watch, and a new WW may be
   needed downstream.

   DISCUSSION...Multicellular clusters/quasi-linear convective segments
   are in progress across portions of northwest TN into western KY.
   Some of these storms have a history of damaging wind gusts. While
   the kinematic fields will likely remain weak throughout the
   afternoon/evening hours, ample buoyancy is in place over and
   downstream of Severe Thunderstorm Watch 0400, which will support a
   continued threat for damaging wind gusts.

   Convective trends will be monitored for downstream WW issuance
   pending further development of convection east of the Watch, as well
   as with sustenance of convection across the western KY/northwest TN
