   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0344 PM CDT TUE MAY 10 2016

   AREAS AFFECTED...SERN INDIANA...SRN OHIO...PORTIONS OF KENTUCKY

   CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 159...

   VALID 102044Z - 102145Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 159
   CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...SCATTERED STRONG/SEVERE STORMS WILL CONTINUE...PRIMARILY
   OVER THE EASTERN AND SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF WW.

   DISCUSSION...EARLY-DAY MCS HAS PROPAGATED ALONG THE OH RIVER AND HAS
   STABILIZED BOUNDARY-LAYER AIR MASS NORTH OF THE RIVER ACROSS INDIANA
   AND SWRN OH.  MORE BUOYANT AIR MASS NOW IS CONFINED TO WRN/CNTRL KY
   WHERE DEEP WLY FLOW RESIDES WITHIN BASE OF PROGRESSIVE SHORT-WAVE
   TROUGH.  EVEN SO...STEEP LOW-LEVEL LAPSE RATES HAVE DEVELOPED INTO
   SRN OH IMMEDIATELY AHEAD OF MCS AND THIS COULD ENHANCE DOWNDRAFT
   POTENTIAL WITH STRONGER CORES.  HAIL MAY ALSO ACCOMPANY THE
   STRONGEST UPDRAFTS.  AT THIS TIME IT APPEARS THE GREATEST
   CONCENTRATION OF STORMS WILL CONTINUE ALONG A CORRIDOR FROM WRN
   KY...NEWD INTO SRN OH.
