    Areas affected...Portions of extreme southeast Missouri...extreme
    southern Illinois and far western Kentucky

    Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 118...

    Valid 282029Z - 282200Z

    The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 118

    SUMMARY...Some severe threat remains across Severe Thunderstorm
    Watch 0118 over the next few hours. A couple damaging gusts are
    expected be the primary concern.

    DISCUSSION...The remnants of an earlier QLCS persist across western
    portions of Severe Thunderstorm Watch 0118 in the form of a loosely
    organized multicellular cluster which is about to cross the Missouri
    Bootheel. These storms are traversing a relatively diffuse west-east
    oriented baroclinic zone, characterized by 1000+ J/kg MLCAPE and
    40-50 kts of effective bulk shear as shown by the latest
    Mesoanalysis. The 1948Z KPAH VWP also shows modest low-level shear
    (i.e. just over 150 m2/s2 0-3km SRH) with a nearly straight
    hodograph. As such, the multicellular cluster is expected to
    continue across the watch over the next few hours. Nonetheless, the
    storms are propagating away from the low-level jet axis, which is
    currently established across parts of the Mid South, as well as the
    stronger mid-level flow. Questions remain regarding the overall
    coverage of damaging winds. Nonetheless, the aforementioned
    CAPE/shear parameter space suggests that at least a couple damaging
    gusts and perhaps a brief tornado cannot be ruled out.
