Tornado Watch 7:45 a.m. - 4 p.m., LA/MS


Tornado watch just issued by the SPC.

DISCUSSION...SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS HAVE BEEN INCREASING ALONG LOW LEVEL JET AXIS ACROSS LA/AR THIS MORNING. STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO BECOME SURFACE-BASED AND INTENSIFY BY MID MORNING AS THEY SPREAD INTO MS. FAVORABLE VERTICAL SHEAR PROFILES AND INCREASING LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL SUPPORT A RISK OF SUPERCELLS CAPABLE OF TORNADOES...DAMAGING WINDS...AND HAIL.


I am increasingly concerned that the clouds may lift with passage of the warm front and warm air advection from the south will provide the instability necessary to make this a very dangerous day across the State of Alabama. STAY ALERT!

Keep your eyes trained on the sky. It's show time.
