   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0597
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   1139 PM CDT TUE MAY 10 2016

   AREAS AFFECTED...EASTERN KY INTO SOUTHERN WV/FAR WESTERN VA

   CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 163...

   VALID 110439Z - 110615Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 163
   CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...SEVERE HAIL/LOCALLY DAMAGING WIND GUSTS MAY REMAIN
   POSSIBLE MAINLY ACROSS SOUTHEAST KY...BUT THE OVERALL SEVERE RISK
   SHOULD CONTINUE TO DIMINISH OVERNIGHT. CURRENT THINKING IS THAT
   SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH CAN EXPIRE AS SCHEDULED AT 06Z.

   DISCUSSION...MULTIPLE WAVES OF THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUE TO PROGRESS
   EASTWARD THROUGH SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 163...WITH THE STRONGEST
   STORMS GENERALLY APPROACHING I-75 IN SOUTHEAST KY AS OF 0430Z. THESE
   STORMS HAVE ACCESS TO A RESIDUAL FEED OF MODESTLY UNSTABLE AIR FROM
   THE WEST-SOUTHWEST. WHILE SPORADIC HAIL/LOCALLY DAMAGING WINDS COULD
   YET OCCUR...OVERALL UPDRAFT/DOWNDRAFT INTENSITIES SHOULD CONTINUE TO
   GRADUALLY DIMINISH AS ADDITIONAL BOUNDARY LAYER COOLING OCCURS AND
   STORMS SPREAD AWAY FROM THE RICHER MOISTURE/INSTABILITY.
