    Mesoscale Discussion 1109
    NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
    1145 AM CDT Sat Jun 26 2021

    Areas affected...Parts of east central Missouri through
    central/northeastern Illinois and adjacent northwestern Indiana

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

    Valid 261645Z - 261845Z

    Probability of Watch Issuance...60 percent

    SUMMARY...Thunderstorm development likely will continue to increase
    through 1-3 PM CDT, posing at least some risk for isolated tornadoes
    and damaging downbursts.

    DISCUSSION...Deepening convective development is ongoing along a
    narrow corridor of destabilization largely driven by daytime
    heating. This is occurring near a remnant convectively generated
    surface boundary, along which low-level convergence is focused and
    maintaining mid 70s F surface dew points, from the Greater St. Louis
    metro area north-northeastward into the Greater Chicago area. This
    is also along the southeastern periphery of a lower/mid tropospheric
    cyclone centered over Iowa, with a remnant MCV also migrating
    northeast of the Springfield, MO area, toward St. Louis.

    Lapse rates are generally weak, but the low-level moisture appears
    to be contributing to mixed-layer CAPE in excess of 1000 J/kg, which
    could increase to 1500-2000 J/kg with continuing insolation.=20
    Furthermore, the axis of destabilization is aligned with a
    south-southwesterly 850 mb jet migrating across the middle
    Mississippi Valley toward the Great Lakes region.

    Moderate to strong low-level shear will support rotation in
    developing updrafts, some of which may occasionally strengthen and
    pose a risk for at least brief tornadoes. Otherwise, consolidating/
    upscale growing storm clusters are also possible and may be
    accompanied by a risk for damaging downbursts.
