Areas affected...Northern Kansas and southern Nebraska

Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 438...

Valid 142317Z - 150045Z

The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 438
continues.

SUMMARY...Expect storms to continue to build southwestward along the
front this evening.

DISCUSSION...A large supercell has continued southward across
southeast Nebraska this evening with several reports of 1.25 inch
hail and a few brief tornado reports. Expect additional development
to continue on the western flank of the ongoing activity along the
cold front through the evening. The brief tornadoes are likely a
result of vorticity stretching along the cold front boundary where
extreme instability (4000-5000 J/kg MLCAPE) is resulting in extreme
low-level parcel accelerations. A threat for an additional brief
tornado or two remains possible for the next 2 hours before the
threat diminishes as the boundary layer cools. A lack of stronger
upper-level forcing should allow storm activity to gradually weaken
after sunset with most of the severe weather threat coming to an end
by 04-05Z.
