Organized severe thunderstorms appear unlikely on Friday.

...Synopsis and Discussion...
Within broadly cyclonic flow over the central/eastern states, a
subtle mid-level impulse will advance eastward from the
southern/central Plains across the lower MS Valley and Mid-South on
Friday. A weak surface low is likewise expected to develop from the
Ozarks vicinity towards the southern/central Appalachians by Friday
evening. Modest low-level moisture, with surface dewpoints generally
in the mid to upper 50s, should be present ahead of a front from the
ArkLaTex into the Mid-South. As this front moves east-southeastward
through the day, isolated to scattered thunderstorms may develop
along its length. With mid-level flow largely paralleling the front,
there should be a tendency for convection to be undercut and become
elevated. Still, some chance for strong/gusty winds and small hail
may exist with any near-surface-based thunderstorms across the
Mid-South Friday afternoon, as weak instability and sufficient
deep-layer shear may support modest updraft organization. But,
overall severe potential still appears too limited to add low
hail/wind probabilities at this time.
