   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0722
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   1156 PM CDT TUE MAY 24 2016

   AREAS AFFECTED...EXTREME NORTHEAST CO AND SOUTHWEST NEB

   CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 206...

   VALID 250456Z - 250600Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 206 CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...AN ISOLATED HAIL THREAT WILL REMAIN POSSIBLE WITH THE
   STORM MOVING FROM NORTHERN YUMA COUNTY CO TO FAR SOUTHWEST NEB
   THROUGH 07-08Z.  THE TORNADO THREAT APPEARS TO BE GREATLY DIMINISHED
   AS THE YUMA STORM AND ANY ADDITIONAL STORMS SHOULD REMAIN NORTH OF
   AN OUTFLOW BOUNDARY...THAT EXTENDED FROM NORTHWEST RED WILLOW COUNTY
   NEB TO CHEYENNE COUNTY KS TO SOUTHERN YUMA COUNTY CO.

   DISCUSSION...TRENDS IN RADAR IMAGERY INDICATED MOST OF THE STRONG TO
   SEVERE STORMS HAVE MOVED EAST OF WW 206...EXCEPT FOR A STORM IN
   NORTHERN YUMA COUNTY CO.  HOWEVER...THIS STORM WAS LOCATED NORTH OF
   THE AFOREMENTIONED CONVECTIVE OUTFLOW BOUNDARY ATTENDANT TO THE MAIN
   TSTM COMPLEX MOVING TOWARD CENTRAL NEB.  RESIDUAL MODERATE
   INSTABILITY NEAR AND NORTH OF THE OUTFLOW BOUNDARY AND STRONG
   EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR SUPPORT AN ENVIRONMENT FAVORABLE FOR
   SUSTAINED...ORGANIZED STORMS.  SINCE THE TORNADO THREAT APPEARS TO
   BE GREATLY DIMINISHED...WW 206 SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO EXPIRE AT
   06...DESPITE THE POTENTIAL FOR A FEW ELEVATED SEVERE STORMS POSSIBLE
   THROUGH 07-08Z.
