Concerning...Tornado Watch 701...

Valid 162232Z - 170000Z

The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 701 continues.

SUMMARY...Tornado potential will likely maximize during the next 1-2
hours.  A strong tornado is possible with the supercells moving
northeast across the US 49 corridor.

DISCUSSION...Radar imagery shows a cluster of supercells over
southern MS moving northeast within a moderately unstable airmass. 
Surface conditions show middle 70s degrees temperatures and
dewpoints in the 68-70 degrees F range.  RAP forecast sounding show
strengthening and veering winds with height with minimal weakness
(i.e., veer-back-veer).  As a result, hodographs seem most favorable
within this corridor over southern MS.  Additionally, the maximizing
of buoyancy across southern MS translates to a heightened
supercell-tornado risk potentially evolving during the next 1-2
hours.
