Mesoscale Discussion 0721
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
1034 PM CDT Wed May 08 2024

Areas affected...southeastern Missouri...southern Illinois...and
western Kentucky

Concerning...Tornado Watch 212...

Valid 090334Z - 090500Z

The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 212 continues.

SUMMARY...Risk for damaging winds and hail, and a couple of
tornadoes, continues across the discussion area (within Tornado
Watch 212).

DISCUSSION...A bowing band of storms is moving out of southeastern
Missouri into southern Illinois at this time, while more
isolated/rotating cells continue to gradually increase in coverage
from the Missouri Bootheel into western Kentucky.  With this area on
the northern fringe of a moderately unstable airmass, storms will
likely maintain intensity over the next couple of hours.  Aided by
veering low-level flow that increase to 50-plus kt above 4km AGL,
shear will support updraft rotation.  Resulting, all-hazards severe
risk will therefore likely continue through midnight, spreading
gradually eastward with time, toward eastern portions of the watch.
