   Valid 091200Z - 101200Z


   Strong to locally severe storms, capable of producing damaging wind
   gusts and some hail, are possible from the Ozarks vicinity eastward
   across the Tennessee Valley and Southeast.  Isolated severe storms
   with severe gusts and hail will also be possible across portions of
   the central High Plains and southern Plains.  Isolated strong to
   severe gusts may also occur over parts of the northern Intermountain
   region and northern High Plains.

   ...Ozarks into parts of the Tennessee Valley and Southeast...
   Storms will likely be ongoing at the start of the forecast period
   from southeast KS into the Ozarks vicinity, with sufficient buoyancy
   and deep-layer shear to support some threat for damaging wind and
   possibly some hail through the morning. Meanwhile, guidance
   generally suggests that a convectively enhanced vorticity maximum
   will move across southern MO through the day. This feature would
   likely be accompanied by locally stronger midlevel flow, but it may
   tend to be displaced north of the effective warm sector with time,
   as an outflow-reinforced cold front moves southward across Arkansas
   and parts of the Southeast. 

   Storm redevelopment will be possible in the vicinity of the front
   during the afternoon and evening, along with some potential for
   persistence of slightly elevated convection north of the boundary.
   Moderate to strong instability and at least modestly favorable
   deep-layer shear could support a few organized storms, with a threat
   of at least isolated damaging winds and hail. At this time, the
   greatest relative coverage of storms is currently expected from AR
   into parts of western TN and northern MS, and greater severe
   probabilities may be needed in this area, depending on the evolution
   of mesoscale details. Some potential for strong thunderstorms will
   also extend eastward across AL/GA into parts of the Carolinas, with
   some threat of isolated damaging wind and perhaps some hail.

   ...Eastern NM into west/southwest TX...
   Scattered to numerous thunderstorms are expected this afternoon and
   evening from eastern NM into parts of west/southwest TX, within a
   moist, moderately unstable, and weakly capped environment.
   Mid/upper-level flow is expected to remain weak, which will
   generally tend to limit storm organization. However, low-level
   east-northeasterly flow north of the southward-moving cold front may
   modestly enhance deep-layer shear, and a few stronger multicell
   clusters and perhaps a transient supercell will be possible, with a
   threat of at least isolated hail and severe gusts. 

   ...Northern NM into CO...eastern WY...and southeast MT...
   Scattered thunderstorm development is expected this afternoon into
   the evening from the Raton Mesa vicinity into parts of the CO Front
   Range. Deep-layer flow/shear will not be particularly strong, but
   moderate instability could support isolated hail and severe gusts
   with the strongest storms. A similar regime (with perhaps slightly
   better deep-layer shear) is expected from eastern WY into southeast
   MT, where a few strong storms capable of isolated hail and severe
   gusts will also be possible. 

   ...Northern Great Basin into the northern Rockies...
   A mid/upper-level shortwave trough will move across the interior
   Northwest during the day, and into the northern Rockies by tonight.
   MLCAPE of around 500 J/kg and modestly enhanced deep-layer shear
   could support occasionally organized storms. Localized severe gusts
   and perhaps some hail will be possible.
