Mesoscale Discussion 2280
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
1153 PM CST Mon Nov 20 2023
Areas affected...southern Mississippi into parts of eastern
Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible
Valid 210553Z - 210730Z
Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent
SUMMARY...A few strong may produce strong gusts or even a brief
tornado, but the overall threat in the near term is not expected to
warrant an additional watch.
DISCUSSION...Storms have aggregated into a broken line from southern
MS into southeast LA, with indications of gusts winds at times.
Little rotation or supercell structures have been observed in the
past hour, likely due to gradually veering low-level winds and
decreasing ascent overall.
Effective SRH around 300 m2/s2, a moist boundary layer and 500-1000
J/kg MLCAPE still may yield a supercell, but perhaps short lived,
with brief tornado potential. However, the overall threat does not
appear high enough for an additional tornado watch at this time.
Given the moist air mass and 40-50 kt low-level jet, convective
trends will continue to be monitored for any increase in intensity
