   Mesoscale Discussion 0116
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1044 PM CST Sat Mar 10 2018

   Areas affected...Far Southeast AR...Far northeast LA...Central MS

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 8...

   Valid 110444Z - 110615Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 8 continues.

   SUMMARY...Severe hail remains possible for the next few hours.

   DISCUSSION...Cluster of thunderstorms continues to progress
   southeastward along a warm front draped across the region. Several
   embedded supercells exists within this thunderstorm cluster along
   its southwestern periphery where a moist inflow is being
   strengthening by a modest low-level jet. Radar reflectivity is also
   showing some hints towards MCV development, which is further
   supported by the overall longevity and organization of the system.
   Strong vertical shear (i.e. effective bulk shear over 50 kt based on
   the latest mesoanalysis) will continue to support rotating updrafts
   capable of severe hail. Given recent development farther east, an
   areal extension may be needed across portions of east-central MS.
