update 11:30 am new MD from the SPC

MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0192
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   1032 AM CST FRI MAR 12 2010
  
   AREAS AFFECTED…NWRN GA…MIDDLE/ERN TN…CNTRL KY
  
   CONCERNING…SEVERE POTENTIAL…WATCH POSSIBLE
  
   VALID 121632Z – 121730Z
  
   SEVERAL WEAK…BUT NOTABLE UPPER VORT MAXIMA/MCV ARE ROTATING NWD
   ALONG ERN PERIPHERY OF DOMINANT UPPER LOW CENTERED NEAR KCI.  THESE
   DOWNSTREAM FEATURES ARE PRIMARILY RESPONSIBLE FOR NARROW ELONGATED
   ZONE OF GRADUALLY INTENSIFYING CONVECTION FROM NERN AL…NWD INTO
   CNTRL KY.  LIGHTNING/RADAR DATA SUPPORT THIS UPWARD EVOLUTION WHICH
   IS LIKELY TO CONTINUE WITH ANY BOUNDARY LAYER HEATING OBSERVED INTO
   THE AFTERNOON HOURS.  ALTHOUGH SFC DEW POINTS ARE GENERALLY IN THE
   LOWER 50S…QUITE COLD MID LEVEL TEMPERATURES…H5 AOB MINUS
   20C…WILL OVERSPREAD A N-S ZONE OF LOW LEVEL CONFLUENCE IN THE
   AFOREMENTIONED AREA ENHANCING THE PROSPECTS FOR GRADUALLY
   INTENSIFYING/SUSTAINING DEEPENING CONVECTION…ESPECIALLY GIVEN THAT
   STRONGEST LLJ WILL REFOCUS OVER TN/KY DURING THE 18-21Z TIME FRAME.
   ORGANIZED LINE SEGMENTS THAT MANAGE TO BECOME ELONGATED A BIT NW-SE
   ACROSS THIS REGION COULD PRODUCE DAMAGING WIND GUSTS.  WILL CONTINUE
   TO MONITOR THIS REGION.
  
   ..DARROW.. 03/12/2010
  
A WEAK SURFACE LOW WILL PRECEDE THE EJECTING MID LEVEL TROUGH NOW
   OVER NRN MS/WRN TN.  ISOLATED STRONG/SEVERE STORMS ARE ONGOING AS OF
   MID MORNING FROM NE AL NWD INTO CENTRAL KY…WITH THE STRONGER
   STORMS IN AL ALONG THE N EDGE OF THE SOMEWHAT STRONGER INSTABILITY.
   THE NE AL/TN/KY CONVECTION SHOULD PERSIST THROUGH THE AFTERNOON IN
   CONJUNCTION WITH THE NWD MOVEMENT OF THE STRONGER LOW-MIDLEVEL
   ASCENT AND LOW-LEVEL FLOW RESPONSE PRECEDING THE EJECTING MIDLEVEL
   WAVE.  THE DEGREE OF INSTABILITY INTO TN/KY IS IN QUESTION GIVEN THE
   WIDESPREAD CLOUD COVER.  STILL…SOME SURFACE HEATING IN CLOUD
   BREAKS AND THE PRESENCE OF BOUNDARY LAYER DEWPOINTS IN THE 50S COULD
   RESULT IN SUFFICIENT INSTABILITY FOR LINE SEGMENTS CAPABLE OF
   PRODUCING DAMAGING WINDS…ALONG WITH SMALL SUPERCELLS AND THE
   POTENTIAL FOR MARGINALLY SEVERE HAIL AND AN ISOLATED TORNADO.
