UPDATE


TORNADO WATCH 253 ISSUED FOR MOORE...LINCOLN...MADISON...
MORGAN...AND ALL COUNTIES WEST. INCREASED POPS IN WESTERN
COUNTIES TO LIKELY...AND ADDED MENTION OF LARGE HAIL AND
DAMAGING WINDS TO ZONES/GRIDS. UPDATES ALREADY OUT.




DISCUSSION


WATCHING CLUSTER OF SVR TSRAS IN NRN MS CURRENTLY. SEVERAL
SVR T'STORM WARNINGS AND TORNADO WARNINGS HAVE ALREADY BEEN
ISSUED FOR THIS COMPLEX. IN SVR T'STORMS...LARGE HAIL
(UP TO HALF-DOLLAR SIZE ALREADY REPORTED NEAR PANOLA)...AND
DAMAGING WINDS (~60KTS) ARE THE PRIMARY THREATS WITH THESE
STORMS. SHOULD SEE THE LEADING EDGE OF THIS QUASI-LINEAR
FEATURE BEGIN TO PUSH INTO NWRN AL ~8-9PM CDT. ALTHOUGH
KINEMATIC/THERMODYNAMIC PROFILES ARE NOT AS IMPRESSIVE IN
OUR AREA...STILL EXPECT SVR POTENTIAL COULD BE ONGOING.
AS THE TORNADO WATCH MAY SUGGEST...ISOLD TORNADOES WILL
STILL BE A POSSIBILITY WITH THESE STORMS AS WELL AS THEY
MOVE INTO OUR WRN COUNTIES. WILL BE WATCHING AND MAKING
MESOSCALE UPDATES AND OTHER FCST UPDATES AS NECESSARY AND
AS MUCH AS TIME WILL ALLOW.
