AREAS AFFECTED...SW AL...SRN AND CNTRL MS...SRN AND ERN LA

CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 10...

VALID 022318Z - 030115Z

THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 10 CONTINUES.

SUMMARY...A SEVERE THREAT WILL CONTINUE ACROSS ERN LA...SRN AND
CNTRL MS AND SW AL OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS. TORNADOES AND WIND
DAMAGE WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH THE GREATEST TORNADO THREAT ACROSS THE
NERN PART OF THE WATCH.

DISCUSSION...LATEST SFC ANALYSIS SHOWS A COLD FRONT IN WRN MS WITH
SLY FLOW AHEAD OF THE FRONT FROM SE LA ACROSS MOST OF MS. SFC
DEWPOINTS ALONG THIS CORRIDOR RANGE FROM THE MID 60S TO THE LOWER
70S F WITH MESOSCALE ANALYSIS SHOWING AN AXIS OF INSTABILITY ACROSS
THE CNTRL PART OF THE WATCH. THE LATEST RADAR TRENDS SHOW A LINE OF
THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE FRONT WITH ANOTHER MORE INTENSE LINE LOCATED
ALONG A PRE-FRONTAL CONFLUENCE ZONE EXTENDING FROM JUST SOUTHEAST OF
JACKSON NNEWD TO NEAR COLUMBUS MS. THE WSR-88D VWP AT JACKSON MS
SHOWS STRONG SPEED SHEAR IN THE LOWEST 1 KM AGL WITH 0-6 KM SHEAR
NEAR 50 KT. THIS COMBINED WITH 0-3 KM STORM RELATIVE HELCITIES IN
THE 350 TO 400 M2/S2 RANGE WILL BE FAVORABLE FOR STORM ROTATION AND
TORNADOES WILL BE POSSIBLE. THE GREATEST POTENTIAL FOR TORNADOES
WILL BE IN THE NERN PART OF THE WATCH NEAR THE AL STATE LINE WHERE
THE CORE OF A 50 TO 60 KT LOW-LEVEL JET IS ANALYZED. ALTHOUGH SFC
WINDS ARE MORE VEERED IN THE SRN PART OF THE WATCH...ISOLATED WIND
DAMAGE AND A BRIEF TORNADO WILL STILL BE POSSIBLE MAINLY DUE TO THE
STRONG LOW-LEVEL FLOW.
