    ...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FROM THE LOWER
    MISSISSIPPI VALLEY TO THE SOUTHERN GREAT LAKES...
    
    ...SUMMARY...
    Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms remain possible, primarily
    across the central Gulf Coast states tonight.
    
    ...01z Update...
    
    Center of upper low is currently located over northern OK. This
    feature will move slowly northeast tonight as stronger flow advances
    downstream into the lower MS/western TN Valley region. While bands
    of strong/severe convection have developed well ahead of this
    feature, primary surface front may become more convectively active
    later this evening across AR/LA. Both LCH and LZK exhibited
    weak/minimal inhibition in their 00Z soundings and isolated
    thunderstorms are now forming along the boundary across AR. As weak
    mid-level height falls spread across this region there appears to be
    some chance for renewed convection along the front later this
    evening. Earlier corridor of strong/severe thunderstorms across
    MS/AL has shifted a bit downstream and a few robust storms may
    linger across this region with some attendant threat for locally
    strong winds or perhaps a brief tornado.
    
    Elsewhere, scattered showers/thunderstorms persist from the TN
    Valley into the southern Great Lakes region. Overall trends have
    been down with this activity but modest shear and ample buoyancy
    will likely continue to support at least a few robust updrafts this
    evening. Primary risk appears to be locally gusty winds.
