PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...20 PERCENT

SUMMARY...ISOLATED STRONG WIND GUSTS AND/OR SEVERE HAIL WILL REMAIN
POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS SOUTHEAST KS AND ADJACENT
NORTH-CENTRAL TO NORTHEAST OK...AND PERHAPS FAR SOUTHWEST MO /FROM
VERNON TO JASPER COUNTIES/.

DISCUSSION...TRENDS IN MOSAIC RADAR IMAGERY AND LOCAL STORM REPORTS
INDICATED STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS HAVE AFFECTED SOUTH-CENTRAL KS AND
NORTH-CENTRAL OK.  AT 2044Z...RADAR IMAGERY SHOWED THE LEADING EDGE
OF THIS ACTIVITY EXTENDING FROM CHASE TO WILSON AND MONTGOMERY
COUNTIES KS...WITH ADDITIONAL STORMS EXTENDING FROM COWLEY COUNTY KS
TO FAR WESTERN OSAGE COUNTY OK.  E/NELY SURFACE WINDS AND A STABLE
ENVIRONMENT DOWNSTREAM ACROSS SOUTHEAST KS INTO SOUTHWEST MO SUGGEST
THIS ACTIVITY IS ROOTED ABOVE THE SURFACE...AND LIKELY INGESTING
MODERATE INSTABILITY ALONG SLY LOW-LEVEL WINDS AT AND ABOVE 0.5 KM
AGL PER TLX AND TULSA VAD WINDS.  THESE STORMS WILL BE SUPPORTED BY
FORCING FOR ASCENT ATTENDANT TO A NORTHEASTWARD-MOVING SHORTWAVE
TROUGH THROUGH SOUTHEAST KS.  CURRENT THINKING SUGGESTS THIS
ACTIVITY SHOULD OUTRUN THE BETTER INFLOW LAYER OF GREATER
INSTABILITY AS IT REACHES SOUTHWEST MO.
