   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 74
   CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...SEVERE THREAT WILL CONCENTRATE ACROSS SOUTH CENTRAL KS
   OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS.

   DISCUSSION...AN EXPANSIVE AREA OF CONVECTION HAS OVERTURNED AIR MASS
   ACROSS THE CNTRL PLAINS.  STRONGEST TSTMS ARE NOW FOCUSED ALONG THE
   KS/OK BORDER AND THESE STORMS ARE PROPAGATING SLOWLY ENEWD.  LATEST

   NECESSARY TO CONTINUE WW74 LOCALLY...OR PERHAPS EVEN EXTEND WATCH TO
   INCLUDE COWLEY/BUTLER/CHAUTAUQUA COUNTIES BEYOND 02Z.
