   Areas affected...Northeastern Louisiana into Southeast Arkansas and
   Northern Mississippi

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible 

   Valid 261745Z - 261945Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent

   SUMMARY...A QLCS located near and along the Mississippi river, in
   addition to warm sector thunderstorms developing over much of
   Northern MS, are being monitored for possible weather watch
   issuance. The primary threat is for damaging straight-line winds.

   DISCUSSION...A QLCS located along and near the Mississippi River is
   advancing east-southeast into northern Mississippi, with another
   region of stronger reflectivity advancing from southern AR into
   northern LA. Ahead of the QLCS, warm sector thunderstorms have
   developed across much of MS and into western AL. 

   This environment is characterized by MLCAPE > 2500 J/kg, but deep
   layer vertical shear remains weak at only 10-20 kts and mostly
   unidirectional. Coupled with anomalously high precipitable water
   values > 2 inches on the 12Z JAN sounding -- near the daily max for
   this time of year -- the primary severe threat appears to be from
   wet microbursts, in addition to damaging winds from QLCS outflow. 

   Given current convective trends, the area is being monitored for
   weather watch issuance.
