There's a decent cap along with very dry air aloft. I wish, wish, wish there are balloon launches in Memphis. Regardless, if there was a sounding launch in Starkville the readings would likely be the same as JAN. The MLCAPE isn't too bad, but the veering winds with height aren't too impressive. The radar is not impressing me, either as there is only a line of what appears to be a "wanna-be squall line." The setup isn't at it's prime right now. At this moment, I'd have to say chances are good that the severe weather threat for the Starkville area appears to be a bust. The best chances of severe weather will be to our northeast today where the SPC has northern Alabama, parts of eastern Kentucky, and northern Georgia under a moderate risk.
