Severe Weather Threat Day 1 Sun Jun 9

Have Adjusted Severe Probs Over Portions Of The Ern Gulf States To
Account For Ongoing Convective Trends.

Ern Fl Panhandle...

Slow Moving Mcs Has Evolved Over The Fl Panhandle Over The Last
Several Hours. Along The Leading Edge Of This Complex Of Storms A More Intense Band Of Convection Is Surging Newd At Roughly 25kt
Across Holmes/Washington/Bay Counties. With 30-40kt Of Mid Level
Flow Across This Region It Appears Mcs Should Progress Across The
Remainder Of Fl Panhandle Into Swrn Ga. Have Increased Severe Probs Downstream Of This Convection To Account For Isolated Damaging Winds.


Considerable Amount Of Convective Overturning Has Occurred Across Nrn Ga Into Ern Tn In The Wake Of Earlier Tstms. Although Numerous Showers/Tstms May Yet Develop/Move Across This Region...Have Adjusted Severe Probs Downward To Account For Weaker Updrafts/Downdrafts Within The Marginal Lapse Rate Environment.


Only Minor Changes Have Been Made Along Wrn Fringe Of Thunder/Severe Outlook Beneath Mid Level Trough Over The Ms Valley.

Prev Discussion...

Lwr Mo Vly Trough Expected To Continue Ese And Evolve Into A Closed Low Centered Over Cntrl Il By 12z Mon As Grt Basin Ridge Progresses E To The Rckys. Satellite Also Shows A Series Of Weak Disturbances Moving E Or Ne From The Wrn/Cntrl Gulf Cst Region Into The Tn Vly/Carolinas.

Low-Lvl Moisture Will Continue To Spread Nwd Into The Tn And Lwr Oh Vlys Ahead Of Sfc Low Attendant To Mo Vly Trough. Coupled With Sfc Heating And Relatively Cool Mid-Lvl Temps...The Moistening Should Support Widespread Diurnally-Enhanced Shower/Tstm Development Over A Large Part Of The East Central And Sern U.S.

Isold Svr Wind Gusts And Marginally Svr Hail May Accompany Much Of This Activity Following Max Heating. Otherwise...The Potential For Svr Tstms Should Be Most Concentrated In An Arc From Cntrl Il/Ern Mo Swd Into Ern Ar/Wrn Ms...In Zone Of Strongest Ascent Ahead Of Mo Vly Trough.

A Conditional Risk For Svr Storms Also Will Exist In Weak Upslope Environment Over The Srn High Plns.

Mid/Lwr Ms Vly This Aftn Through Early Tngt...

Weak Cold Front/Wind Shift Associated With Mo Vly Upr Trough Will
Once Again Serve To Focus Diurnally-Enhanced Storm Development As Lobe Of Ascent Overspreads Region On Se Side Of The Trough.

Mid-Lvl Lapse Rates Will Remain Comparatively Modest...But Sfc Heating And Moisture Inflow Show Boost Sbcape To Around 1500 J/Kg...Especially From Cntrl Il Swd Into Ern Ar/Wrn Ms/Nrn La.

Combination Of Weak Cin...30-35 Kt Swly Deep Shear...And Ssw-Nne Boundary Orientation Suggest Likelihood For Clusters/Bands Of Sustained Storms...Including A Few Embedded Supercells....With Lewp/Bow Structures Capable Of Svr Wind/Hail Through Early Tngt.

Although A Tornado Or Two Cannot Be Ruled Out...Modest Low-Lvl
Speed/Directional Shear Should Minimize Such A Threat.

Tn Vly/Srn Appalachians This Aftn...

Satellite And Upr Air Analyses Show A Series Of Disturbances Moving
Generally Newd Into Sw Flow Ahead Of Mo Vly Trough. The Most
Identifiable Such Feature Appears Attm To Extend From Middle Tn Sewd Into Ga. Ascent Ahead Of This Disturbance...Along With Sfc Heating And Continued Moisture Inflow...Suggest Potential For A Few Clusters Of Stronger Storms Through The Aftn. These Could Produce Locally Dmgg Wind And Perhaps Marginally Svr Hail Given Presence Of Relatively Cool Air Aloft And Belt Of Enhanced Swly Flow /25-30 Kts At 700 Mb/ Ahead Of The Impulse.

Ern Nm/W Tx Late This Aftn/Early Tngt...

A Conditional Risk For Svr Tstms Will Exist Over The Srn High Plns
Later Today...Where A Pool Of Boundary Layer Moisture Will Persist
Invof Of Weak Front That Has Stalled Over The Region. Upr-Lvl
Forcing For Ascent Will At Best Be Neutral. But Weak... Diurnally-Enhanced Upslope Flow In The Presence Of Ample Moisture...Steep Low To Mid-Lvl Lapse Rates...And Strong Sfc Heating May Yield Isold To Wdly Sctd Tstms. With 15-20 Kt Sely Near-Sfc Flow Veering To 25-30 Kt Nnwly Winds At Mid And Upr Lvls...Setup Could Yield A Supercell Or Two With Svr Hail/Wind.
