Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 89...

Valid 272039Z - 272245Z

The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 89
continues.

SUMMARY...The severe threat across WW 89 is expected to continue
into the early evening. Wind damage and isolated large hail will be
the primary threats with the stronger thunderstorms.

DISCUSSION...The latest surface analysis shows a 1008 mb surface low
over far southwestern Kentucky with a cold front extending
southwestward across northeast Arkansas. Thunderstorms have
developed along the front and further east along a corridor of
low-level moisture extending north northeastward across western
Tennessee. Surface dewpoints in western Tennessee are in the lower
60s F which is contributing to moderate instability with MLCAPE
values estimated in the 1000 to 1500 J/kg range. In addition to the
instability, strong large-scale ascent will provide support for
continued convective development across WW 89 late this afternoon
into this evening. Moderate deep-layer shear profiles and steep
lapse rates will be favorable for storm rotation and isolated large
hail within the strongest cores. Wind damage will also be possible
with short line segments along the front and further to the east
across the warm sector. Cells may eventually consolidate into a
cluster, moving eastward across west-central Tennessee and perhaps
far northeastern Mississippi.
