   Areas of the Mid-MO to Upper MS Valley

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible 

   Valid 211825Z - 212030Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent

   SUMMARY...A generally isolated severe threat should develop into
   late afternoon with a mix of wind/hail, along with a couple
   tornadoes possible. Uncertainty exists with the overall spatial
   extent of the severe threat with slow-moving storms expected.

   DISCUSSION...Convection is slowly increasing along a
   quasi-stationary/slow-moving warm front that arcs from northeast NE
   into far southeast MN and southwest WI. The eastern portion of this
   development appears to be primarily driven by modest low-level warm
   theta-e advection within an uncapped, moderately buoyant air mass.
   Convection farther west over the Mid-MO Valley is also being aided
   by a minor MCV in southeast SD. Area VWPs still indicate relatively
   stronger mid/upper flow is likely displaced along and to the cool
   side of the front, with weak flow into the warm-moist sector. A
   confined corridor of slow-moving, transient supercells and multicell
   clusters should develop near and just south of the front. Overall
   severe coverage will probably remain sporadic with mainly a
   lower-end wind/hail threat. Confidence is somewhat higher in
   intensification, including the potential for a couple tornadoes, in
   association with the MCV over the Mid-MO Valley.
