AREAS AFFECTED...ERN SD...WRN MN...SE ND...FAR NW IA

CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 458...

VALID 280657Z - 280900Z

THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 458
CONTINUES.

SUMMARY...A POTENTIAL FOR ISOLATED WIND DAMAGE AND HAIL WILL LIKELY
CONTINUE FOR SEVERAL MORE HOURS ACROSS SE ND...ERN SD AND MAY AFFECT
WRN MN LATER THIS MORNING. ADDITIONAL WW ISSUANCE MAY BE NEEDED AS
THE LINE OF STORMS MOVES TOWARD THE EDGE OF WW 458.

DISCUSSION...LATEST RADAR IMAGERY SHOW A LINE OF STRONG
THUNDERSTORMS EXTENDING ACROSS SERN ND SWD INTO ERN SD ALONG WHICH
MULTIPLE BOWING LINE SEGMENTS ARE ONGOING. THE LINE IS LOCATED ALONG
AN AXIS OF MODERATE INSTABILITY WHERE MLCAPE IS ESTIMATED FROM 1500
TO 2000 J/KG AND SFC DEWPOINTS ARE IN THE LOWER TO MID 70S F. THE
LINE OF STORMS IS BEING SUPPORTED BY LARGE-SCALE ASCENT ASSOCIATED
WITH A MINOR SHORTWAVE TROUGH AND BY A STRENGTHENING 40 TO 55 KT
LOW-LEVEL JET. THE LOW-LEVEL JET IS BEING SAMPLED BY THE FSD WSR-88D
VWP WHICH SHOWS 50 KT AT 1 KM AGL WITH 35-40 KT OF 0-6 KM SHEAR.
THIS ENVIRONMENT SHOULD CONTINUE TO SUPPORT AN ISOLATED SEVERE
THREAT OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS. WIND DAMAGE AND MARGINAL HAIL WILL
BE THE PRIMARY THREATS. THE GREATEST SEVERE WEATHER THREAT MAY BE
ACROSS SERN SD OVER THE NEXT 1 TO 3 HOURS AS THE SRN PART OF THE
CONVECTIVE LINE INTERACTS WITH THE NOSE OF THE CNTRL PLAINS
LOW-LEVEL JET. THIS IS CURRENTLY THE STRONGEST PART OF THE LINE WITH
A 54 KT WIND GUST OBSERVED AT HURON. HOWEVER...THE SEVERE THREAT MAY
BECOME MORE ISOLATED ONCE IT GETS TOWARD THE MN STATE LINE WHERE
INSTABILITY IS MUCH WEAKER. FOR THIS REASON...WW ISSUANCE DOES NOT
APPEAR LIKELY TO THE EAST OF WW 458 BUT STILL CANNOT BE RULED OUT.
