Statement as of 8:40 AM CDT on April 23, 2010

... Major severe weather outbreak expected this afternoon into
tonight and again on Saturday...

A warm... moist... and very unstable airmass will overtake the mid
south this afternoon. This unstable airmass in combination with
increasing wind shear is expected to produce a favorable
environment for severe thunderstorms to develop and persist across
the mid south into tonight. Any thunderstorm that becomes severe
will have the potential to contain damaging winds... large hail
and strong tornadoes. Some tornadoes may occur during the nightime
hours when the dangers of tornadoes are increased.

An increased threat for severe thunderstorms exists on Saturday as
a rapidly strengthening surface low tracks from south Texas to
southern Indiana. A major severe weather outbreak is expected to
unfold Saturday morning across most of the mid south. The best chance
of severe thunderstorms Saturday will be along and east of the
Mississippi River. Even stronger wind shear and a continuation of
unstable conditions could produce strong tornadoes... large
hail... and widespread wind damage. Flash flooding will also be
possible with these storms and a Flash Flood Watch is in effect
from 7 am Saturday until 7 PM Saturday for the entire mid south.

The best window for severe weather will be from 2 PM today to
midnight... and from 6 am to 4 PM Saturday.

Residents of the mid south should prepare for severe weather and
stay abreast of the latest forecasts and statements regarding this
potentially dangerous weather situation. If you do not have a
weather radio... this is a good time to Purchase one. In addition...
you should review severe weather safety rules... know the difference
between a watch and a warning... and be ready to put your safety plans
into action should severe weather threaten your area.
