Valid 251200Z - 261200Z


A few thunderstorms may develop across portions of the central Gulf
States late Wednesday afternoon and early evening.

A broad belt of strong cyclonic flow is forecast over the southern
Rockies eastward through the south-central states on Wednesday.  A
surface low is forecast to develop east-northeastward from the mid
MS Valley into the Lake Huron vicinity by early Wednesday evening as
an attendant cold front sweeps southeastward across the OH Valley
southwestward through the lower MS Valley.  Isentropic lift ahead of
the cold front will lead to considerable cloud cover.  The
development of scattered showers and a few thunderstorms are
expected by the afternoon over the lower MS Valley as mid-level
height falls overspread the region.  The lack of robust moisture
return, coupled with only weak surface heating, will limit the
degree of destabilization and result in meager buoyancy .  Only
general thunderstorms are forecast across portions of the lower MS
