...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM FORECAST DISCUSSION...

CURRENT SFC ANALYSIS CONTS TO SHOW A MOIST AND UNSTBL AMS ACRS A
LARGE PART OF THE SERN U.S. A SLOW MOVG CDFNT WAS LOCATED FM WRN NY
TO SWRN OK...AND A DRYLN EXTDD FM NR BVO TO JUST S OF DLF. DWPNTS
S OF THE FNT WERE IN THE 60S AND 70S...RESULTING IN LI/S IN THE -6

ENHANCE LO LVL FORCING. CNVGNC ELSEWHERE ALG THE FNT IS NOT FCST TO
BE VERY STG...BUT GIVEN THE AMOUNT OF INSTBY...EXPC STG/SVR TSTMS
TO DVLP. FCST CAPES ARE PROGD TO BE STGST IN PARTS OF THE LWR MS
