    Areas affected...southwest Louisiana

    Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely=20

    Valid 042201Z - 042330Z

    Probability of Watch Issuance...5 percent

    SUMMARY...Thunderstorms this afternoon across southwest Louisiana
    will pose a threat of brief tornadoes. The highly localized and
    marginal nature of the threat should preclude the need for a watch.

    DISCUSSION...Thunderstorms continue to develop across southwest
    Louisiana within a very moist, unstable, and weakly capped airmass.
    KLCH wind data suggests that weak mesolow may be developing across
    Cameron parish, just north of Holly Beach. This mesolow/MCV should
    maintain sufficient low-level convergence the next couple of hours
    to sustain ongoing thunderstorms before a gradual weakening later
    this evening with the loss of diurnal heating.

    VAD data from KLCH shows small, but strongly looped low-level
    hodographs which will support brief, transient low-level
    circulations. This is borne out in KLCH radar imagery showing
    several transient rotational velocity signatures within the broader thunderstorm complex across southwest Louisiana. As such, a couple
    of brief tornadoes cannot be ruled out this afternoon and evening.

    The localized and marginal nature of the threat should preclude the
    need for a watch.
