MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1586
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0802 PM CDT WED AUG 24 2016

AREAS AFFECTED...NWRN MO / ERN KS / NRN INTO SWRN OK

CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 455...

VALID 250102Z - 250200Z

THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 455
CONTINUES.

SUMMARY...SEVERE GUSTS ARE POSSIBLE WITH THE STRONGER STORMS AND
LARGE HAIL WILL REMAIN A POSSIBILITY WITH SUPERCELLS OVER ERN KS
INTO WRN PORTIONS OF MO.

DISCUSSION...RADAR MOSAIC SHOWS SCATTERED CLUSTERS OF STORMS ALONG A
SURFACE TROUGH OVER SWRN OK NNEWD INTO SERN PORTIONS OF KS.  AN
OUTFLOW BOUNDARY OVER W-CNTRL MO IS INTERACTING WITH SUPERCELLS NEAR
THE GREATER KANSAS CITY METRO.  MULTIPLE OBSERVING SITES OVER THE
PAST FEW HOURS FROM OK INTO KS HAVE MEASURED SEVERE GUSTS WITH A
RECENTLY MEASURED 74-KT GUST AT KLWC AT 0037Z IN NERN KS.  AREA
WSR-88D VAD DATA AND 00Z RAOBS SHOW VEERING AND STRENGTHENING WIND
PROFILES WITH HEIGHT INTO THE MID LEVELS WITH A CORRIDOR OF 40-60 KT
EFFECTIVE SHEAR WITHIN THE DISCUSSION AREA -- MORE THAN ADEQUATE FOR
ORGANIZED SEVERE STORMS INCLUDING SUPERCELLS.  THE BOUNDARY LAYER
REMAINS QUITE MOIST WITH DEWPOINTS RANGING FROM THE UPPER 60S OVER
SWRN OK TO THE LOWER 70S IN ERN KS AND WRN MO.  DESPITE THE LOSS OF
HEATING...THE BOUNDARY LAYER WILL BE SLOW TO COOL AND WILL LIKELY BE
SUPPORTIVE FOR A CONTINUED RISK FOR SEVERE GUSTS...ESPECIALLY AS
STORMS CONGEAL AND GROW UPSCALE THIS EVENING ACROSS ERN KS INTO WRN
MO.
