   Mesoscale Discussion 1178
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0630 PM CDT Wed Jun 05 2024

   Areas affected...portions of western Alabama

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

   Valid 052330Z - 060030Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

   SUMMARY...A few strong wind gusts remain possible with a bowing
   linear segment for at least a couple more hours. However, the severe
   threat should remain isolated and a WW issuance is not expected.

   DISCUSSION...Multicellular convection, amid a weak shear
   environment, has managed to organize into a bowing segment, with
   tree damage recently reported in Jasper County, MS. This linear
   segment should continue to progress northeastward toward an unstable
   airmass (characterized by 2000+ J/kg MLCAPE) for at least a couple
   more hours. Until nocturnal cooling sets in, additional damaging
   gusts may accompany portions of the line. Nonetheless, the severe
   threat should remain isolated and a WW issuance is not expected.
