Areas affected...Portions of the Upper Michigan Peninsula

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

Valid 100311Z - 100345Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

SUMMARY...A few damaging gusts or brief tornadoes may accompany the
stronger circulations embedded within a QLCS. The line is expected
to gradually weaken as it approaches a more stable air mass. Given
the brevity of the severe threat, a WW issuance is not currently
expected.

DISCUSSION...A well organized QLCS, with an embedded book-end vortex
at the northern portion of the line, and an embedded circulation
just north of the WI/MI border, continues to track eastward within a
modestly sheared/unstable airmass. The southern circulation has been
associated with a few TDSs, suggesting that a few tornadoes may have
already occurred. Given the modest instability and shear in place
across the central portions of Upper MI, along with the current
storm mode, a couple more brief tornadoes are possible in addition
to a few damaging gusts. Otherwise, the line is expected to move
into a more stable airmass downstream, where subsequent weakening is
expected. Given that the severe threat is expected to temper with
time, a WW issuance is not anticipated.
