Areas affected...western and southern Kansas into northern Oklahoma

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

Valid 300555Z - 300830Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

SUMMARY...Scattered clusters of storms may produce localized strong
to severe wind gusts over the next few hours, but the disorganized
nature does not currently warrant a watch.

DISCUSSION...A strong northerly surge across northwest KS has led to
a line of storms which is currently moving into central KS. While
the surface air mass is a bit cool due to earlier convection, the
air mass remains moist, with pockets of stronger instability across
the region. The fast-moving nature of these clusters in association
with a midlevel speed max may allow for isolated strong to severe
wind gusts despite northerly low-level winds and areas of
pre-existing outflow.

To the south, another notable cluster over north-central OK will
continue east/southeast into northeast OK, producing mainly 40-50
mph winds. 850 mb winds will continue to veering tonight, suggesting
threat corridor will remain north of I-40 in OK. If storms over
southwest KS can grow upscale a bit, perhaps isolated strong gusts
will be possible into northwest OK later tonight.
