Areas affected...Portions of coastal LA/MS/AL

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

Valid 080708Z - 080915Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

SUMMARY...Mainly an isolated threat for damaging winds continues
early this morning. Watch issuance remains unlikely.

DISCUSSION...Convection across southern LA has evolved into multiple
small bowing segments over the past couple of hours. Occasional
strong to damaging winds remain possible with two of these segments
over a small part of coastal southeastern LA at 07Z. Recent VWPs
from KLIX still show a strongly veering and strengthening wind
profile with height through mid levels. 0-1 km shear of 35 kt and
0-1 SRH around 200-300 m2/s2 clearly favor the potential for updraft
rotation and a brief tornado. Multiple, but generally weak,
low-level circulations embedded within the bowing segments have
occurred early this morning. Current expectations are for this
isolated severe threat to continue for at least the next couple of
hours as storms move eastward from coastal southeastern LA into
southern MS/AL. Surface observations show that low-level moisture
gradually decreases with eastward extent, and mesoanalysis estimates
show a similar decrease in boundary-layer instability. Ongoing
strong to severe storms should eventually weaken as they encounter a
less unstable airmass. Watch issuance will probably not be needed,
as the spatial and temporal extents of the severe threat are
expected to remain small/short.
