AREAS AFFECTED...CENTRAL KS INTO CENTRAL OK

CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 224...

VALID 272213Z - 272345Z

THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 224
CONTINUES.

SUMMARY...THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AND POSE A RISK OF
LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS.

DISCUSSION...A CLUSTER OF SEVERE STORMS HAS BEEN AFFECTING PARTS OF
SOUTH-CENTRAL KS THIS AFTERNOON...WHERE SEVERAL REPORTS OF LARGE
HAIL /UP TO BASEBALL SIZED/ HAVE BEEN RECEIVED.  THESE STORMS ARE
LIKELY TO PERSIST FOR A FEW MORE HOURS AND TRACK NORTHEASTWARD
TOWARD THE EMP AREA.  MERGING OUTFLOWS MAY RESULT IN AN INCREASED
RISK OF DAMAGING WIND GUSTS THIS EVENING OVER EASTERN KS.

FARTHER SOUTH...NEW STORMS ARE FORMING ALONG THE COLD FRONT/DRYLINE
OVER CENTRAL OK.  WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SUGGESTS THAT THE SHORTWAVE
AXIS IS MOVING INTO THIS AREA...PROVIDING FAVORABLE LIFT.  THE
LATEST SURFACE ANALYSIS SHOWS TEMPERATURES OVER 90F NEAR SPS
IMPINGING ON THE DRYLINE OVER SOUTH-CENTRAL OK...AIDING INITIATION.
STORMS IN THIS AREA WILL LIKELY CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY AND SPREAD
ACROSS THOSE PORTIONS OF WW 224.  STRONG DEEP-LAYER SHEAR SUGGESTS
THAT SUPERCELLS ARE THE LIKELY STORM MODE.
