    Mesoscale Discussion 0501

    Areas affected...portions of southern Missouri and far southwestern

    Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible=20

    Valid 032151Z - 032315Z

    Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent

    SUMMARY...An isolated threat for damaging winds and hail is possible
    with developing thunderstorms near Springfield, MO. A watch is
    possible but high uncertainty remains.

    DISCUSSION...Afternoon water vapor imagery showed a small shortwave
    trough/ MCV moving across a stalled cold front along the Mississippi
    River Valley into the Midwest. Heating along the front has eroded
    the majority of MLCINH across southwestern Missouri. SPC
    mesoanalysis indicates surface dewpoints in the low to middle 60s F
    and lapse mid-level lapse rates near 8 C/km are supporting 1500-2500
    J/kg of MLCAPE. Flow aloft is not overly strong, but mid-level flow
    around 30 kts maybe be sufficient to support marginal supercells.
    Latest WOFS guidance indicates a moderate probability (50-70%) that
    the ongoing storms along the I-44 corridor will reach severe
    criteria over the next couple of hours. With veered low-level winds
    decreasing effective hodograph size, the primary severe threats will
    be large hail and damaging wind gusts.

    Considerable uncertainty remains on the coverage, longevity, and
    severity of storms as they translate northeastward over the next
    couple of hours. The favorable thermodynamics and marginal shear
    parameter space suggest some severe threat may materialize.
    Conditions will be monitored for a possible severe thunderstorm
