   AREAS AFFECTED...SRN AND CNTRL MN / FAR W-CNTRL WI

   CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 126...

   VALID 080148Z - 080315Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 126
   CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...TSTMS SHOULD CONTINUE TO INCREASE IN AREAL COVERAGE
   THROUGH 03Z WITH THE PRIMARY HAZARD BEING SEVERE HAIL.

   DISCUSSION...AS OF 0135Z...RADAR IMAGERY SHOWED A CLUSTER OF TSTMS
   JUST NORTH OF THE SURFACE WARM FRONT OVER WATONWAN AND BLUE EARTH
   COUNTIES...WITH ANOTHER TSTM BAND FARTHER TO THE NORTH AND NEARER TO
   THE 925-MB BAROCLINIC ZONE...FROM MEEKER TO ISANTI COUNTIES. THE 00Z
   MINNEAPOLIS SOUNDING APPEARS TO BE A REASONABLE PROXY FOR THE
   ONGOING ELEVATED STORM ENVIRONMENT...FEATURING STEEP MIDLEVEL LAPSE
   RATES ATOP A MOIST LAYER /CENTERED AROUND 830 MB/ WITH MUCAPE OF
   2500-2900 J/KG. THIS INSTABILITY COUPLED WITH THE FURTHER
   STRENGTHENING OF THE LLJ SHOULD SUPPORT A CONTINUED INCREASE IN
   STORM COVERAGE WITH THIS ACTIVITY GRADUALLY MOVING/DEVELOPING INTO
   PARTS OF W-CNTRL AND NWRN WI LATER TONIGHT. LARGE HAIL WILL REMAIN
