    Areas affected...Southeast MN...Central/Northern WI...Western U.P.
    of MI
    Concerning...Heavy snow 
    Valid 240252Z - 240815Z
    SUMMARY...Heavy snow will become widespread across the region later
    tonight. Snowfall rates of 1-2" per hour will be possible.
    DISCUSSION...At 0230Z, a deepening cyclone is located over southeast
    IA, with a well-defined band of heavy snow to the north and west of
    the low across eastern NE/western IA into southern MN. As the
    cyclone tracks northeastward, heavy snow rates will develop into
    portions of central/northern WI after 03Z, and eventually into the
    U.P. of Michigan after 06Z. Steep midlevel lapse rates (as observed
    in 00Z OAX sounding and implied by scattered lightning activity
    portions of IA/northern IL/southern WI) along the leading edge of
    the dry slot and intense deep-layer ascent will continue to support
    convective elements within the precipitation shield and result in
    heavy snow rates of 1-2" per hour to the north and west of the
    cyclone track as it moves towards the Great Lakes.

    PWO Image
    1025 AM CST SAT FEB 23 2019
    ...Severe thunderstorms expected over parts of the Lower Mississippi
    Valley and Tennessee Valley this afternoon and evening...
    * LOCATIONS...
      Northern and central Mississippi
      Western and middle Tennessee
      Northwest Alabama
      Southeast Arkansas
      Northeast Louisiana
    * HAZARDS...
      Several tornadoes, a few intense
      Scattered damaging winds
      Isolated large hail
    * SUMMARY...
      A few strong tornadoes, scattered damaging winds, and isolated
      large hail are expected, primarily through this evening across
      the Lower Mississippi Valley into the Tennessee Valley. The most
      dangerous period for tornadoes should be around 2 to 8 PM CST
      across northern Mississippi, southwest Tennessee, and far
      northwest Alabama.
    Preparedness actions...
    Review your severe weather safety procedures for the possibility
    of dangerous weather today. Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio,, or other media for watches and warnings. A tornado
    watch means that conditions are favorable for tornadoes to form
    during the next several hours. If a tornado warning is issued for
    your area, move to a place of safety, ideally in a basement or
    interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building.

    Day 1 Convective Outlook  
    NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
    0713 PM CST Sat Feb 23 2019
    Valid 240100Z - 241200Z
    Risk for locally damaging winds and a tornado persists across the
    Tennessee Valley vicinity.
    ...Tennessee Valley vicinity into the central Gulf Coast region...
    Convective intensity continues to gradually wane across the risk
    area, as diurnal cooling continues to yield a slow decrease in CAPE
    across the region.  With favorable shear still in place across the
    warm sector, some risk for a few severe storms will linger. 
    However, with a pronounced wedge front as far west as Middle
    Tennessee/northwest Alabama and the northern 2/3 of Georgia, the
    zone where surface-based severe risk persists continues to shrink,
    as the cold front advances.  
    Greatest risk for a tornado or two appears to linger over
    north-central Alabama, with lesser risk south/southwest across a
    larger portion of Mississippi and Alabama -- over the next couple of
