   While deep-layer flow is not particularly strong, vertical shear is
   somewhat enhanced by backed low-level flow near a retreating diffuse
   baroclinic zone, and a transient supercell or two cannot be ruled
   out, with a threat of locally damaging wind and possibly a brief

   Farther southwest, deep-layer shear is somewhat weaker south of the
   warm front, but MLCAPE increasing above 1500 J/kg and increasingly

   as convection spreads northeastward out of Louisiana through the
