DISCUSSION...A BROKEN LINE OF STRONG/MARGINALLY SEVERE CONVECTION
HAS DEVELOPED FROM NEAR BROWN COUNTY KS EWD TO DAVIESS COUNTY MO
LATE THIS MORNING. THIS DEVELOPMENT IS LIKELY IN RESPONSE TO WEAK
FORCING FOR ASCENT FROM A SUBTLE IMPULSE EMBEDDED IN NWLY FLOW
ALOFT...AND AN ATTENDANT MASS RESPONSE/WEAK WAA ATOP A
QUASI-STATIONARY BOUNDARY OVER THE REGION. THE 12Z TOP RAOB EXHIBITS
RELATIVELY STEEP MID-LEVEL LAPSE RATES...FAVORABLE FOR ROBUST

WOULD BOLSTER HAIL GROWTH AS WELL. THUS...A COUPLE OF LARGE HAIL

THE LACK OF STRONGER FLOW ALOFT AND RELATIVELY LIMITED
SPATIOTEMPORAL NATURE OF THE THREAT...WATCH ISSUANCE IS NOT
ANTICIPATED.
