AREAS AFFECTED...PORTIONS OF CNTRL/WRN NEB...NWRN KS...ERN CO

CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 232...

VALID 310005Z - 310130Z

THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 232
CONTINUES.

SUMMARY...A RELATIVELY ISOLATED SEVERE WIND/HAIL RISK CONTINUES
ACROSS THE VALID PORTION OF WW 232.

DISCUSSION...AT 00Z...THREE PRIMARY AREAS OF CONVECTION WERE ONGOING
ACROSS WW 232. ACROSS NRN NEB...A LOOSELY ORGANIZED CLUSTER WAS
DRAPED ACROSS CHERRY COUNTY...WITH A LEADING CELL E OF THE LINE
MOVING N OF AINSWORTH WITH AN ATTENDANT HAIL/WIND RISK. ACROSS SWRN
NEB INTO FAR NWRN KS...SOME UPSCALE GROWTH WAS EVIDENT...WITH A
SMALL BOWING SEGMENT NOTED APPROACHING NORTH PLATTE WITH AN
ATTENDANT THREAT OF LOCALLY DAMAGING WINDS. FURTHER SOUTH...RECENT
INTENSIFICATION HAS OCCURRED ACROSS KIOWA COUNTY CO AS ONGOING
CONVECTION ENCOUNTERS A MORE UNSTABLE ENVIRONMENT.

THE SEVERE THREAT SHOULD PERSIST FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER 1-2
HOURS...GIVEN THE MODERATELY UNSTABLE ENVIRONMENT IN PLACE
DOWNSTREAM OF THE ONGOING ACTIVITY. STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN
ONLY LOOSELY ORGANIZED...GIVEN RELATIVELY WEAK LOW-MIDLEVEL FLOW
NOTED ON 00Z LBF SOUNDING AND LNX/GLD VWP DATA...BUT SOME LARGE HAIL
AND LOCALLY DAMAGING WINDS WILL BE POSSIBLE. LATER THIS EVENING...AN
INCREASING LOW-LEVEL JET WILL HELP TO SUSTAIN CONVECTION...BUT THE
SEVERE THREAT SHOULD BEGIN TO DECREASE AS AVAILABLE INSTABILITY
BECOMES LARGELY ELEVATED.
