   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0157 AM CDT FRI APR 03 2015

   AREAS AFFECTED...SERN KS

   CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 18...

   VALID 030657Z - 030800Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 18
   CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...THE POTENTIAL FOR ADDITIONAL STRONG/DAMAGING WINDS AND
   LARGE HAIL CONTINUES ACROSS THE ERN EXTENT OF WW #18 IN SERN KS
   THROUGH 07-0730Z.

   DISCUSSION...AT 0645Z...MOSAIC RADAR IMAGERY SHOWED A FAST-MOVING
   LINE OF STORMS IN SERN KS /WOODSON TO MONTGOMERY COUNTIES/
   CONTINUING TO ADVANCE ESEWD AT 55-60 KT INTO THE EXIT REGION OF 50+
   KT SWLY LLJ EXTENDING FROM SWRN-CENTRAL OK INTO SERN KS/SWRN MO/NWRN
   AR.  THE APPROACH OF A SHORTWAVE TROUGH INTO KS OVERNIGHT WILL
   RESULT IN FURTHER STRENGTHENING OF DEEP-LAYER WINDS FROM SERN KS/OK
   INTO THE OZARKS THROUGH AT LEAST 12Z.  A CONTINUED INFLUX OF
   MODERATE INSTABILITY INTO THIS ONGOING SERN KS TSTM COMPLEX AND
   EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR EXCEEDING 50 KT AND STEEP MIDLEVEL LAPSE RATES
   SUGGEST BOTH DAMAGING WINDS AND LARGE HAIL WILL REMAIN A THREAT

   DOWNSTREAM SVR TSTM WATCH #21.
