DAY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0748 PM CDT THU APR 24 2014

VALID 250100Z - 251200Z

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE LOWER
MISSISSIPPI AND TENNESSEE VALLEYS...

...SUMMARY...
SCATTERED STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE
LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY THIS EVENING...WITH THE ACTIVITY SPREADING
EAST INTO PARTS OF THE LOWER OHIO AND LOWER TENNESSEE VALLEYS
THROUGH EARLY FRIDAY MORNING.  DAMAGING WINDS AND ISOLATED LARGE
HAIL WILL BE THE PRIMARY THREATS.

...SYNOPSIS...
THE SLIGHT RISK AREA HAS BEEN TRIMMED ON THE WESTERN AND NORTHERN
EDGES BASED ON LATEST POSITION OF SFC COLD FRONT AND THE
JUXTAPOSITION OF BETTER LOW LEVEL MOISTURE/LAPSE RATES AND EFFECTIVE
SHEAR OVER THE LOWER MS VALLEY. A CLUSTER OF STORMS CURRENTLY MOVING
INTO SOUTHEAST ARKANSAS AS WELL AS ANOTHER CLUSTER FURTHER EAST
MOVING INTO NORTHERN AND CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI WILL POSE THE GREATEST
THREAT FOR STRONG WINDS...ISOLATED LARGE HAIL AND POSSIBLY A TORNADO
IN THE SHORT TERM. AS THESE STORM CLUSTERS TRACK EASTWARD
OVERNIGHT...A THREAT FOR LOCALLY DAMAGING WINDS AND HAIL WILL
CONTINUE INTO THE TENNESSEE VALLEY.
