04/11/04 FCST: Lower Mississippi Valley/ Gulf Coast

Current indications are that some elevated convection will be going on early across portions of the midsouth that could significantly cut down the diurnal heating process. Upper level winds are in a diffluent axis with the trough punching in. MESO-ETA sig severe numbers reach 100 percent over portions of ERN AR/LA WRN MS and WRN TN by 00z. Folks in MS I'm sure will watch this one closely...
I agree Brett....looks like a very wild afternoon/ evening ahead for that area.

I just noticed SPC is about to upgrade portions of northeastern Louisiana into central Mississippi to high risk on the 1630z SWODY update (per SPC mesoscale discussion 0554).
