Areas affected...north-central and northeast Kansas

Concerning...Tornado Watch 585...

Valid 160122Z - 160315Z

The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 585 continues.

SUMMARY...Severe/isolated tornado risk continues across Tornado
Watch 585.

DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop shows a few intense storms across
northeast Kansas, within WW 585.  The storms appear to be initiating
near remnant outflows, and then are propagating south-southeastward
-- fed by a developing 30 to 35 kt south-southwesterly low-level
jet.  Along with large hail, a couple of brief tornadoes have been
spotted recently -- including reports from Geary and Wabaunsee
Counties in Kansas.

Storms will likely persist for several hours, as the low-level jet
continues to strengthen, and given the pool of strong instability
just west of the ongoing storms coupled with a favorably
veering/increasing wind profile with height.  Risk for all hazards
will continue, for at least the next few hours.
