   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0749
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0555 PM CDT THU MAY 26 2016

   AREAS AFFECTED...SOUTH KS

   CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 214...

   VALID 262255Z - 270030Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 214 CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...PRIMARY SEVERE THREAT SHOULD REMAIN IN THE FORM OF LARGE
   HAIL...BUT THE RISK FOR A TORNADIC STORM OR TWO MAY INCREASE
   ESPECIALLY OVER PARTS OF SOUTH-CENTRAL KS.

   DISCUSSION...SEVERAL SUPERCELLS WITH A MIXED CLUSTER/DISCRETE MODE
   ARE ONGOING FROM SOUTHWEST TO EAST-CENTRAL KS...GENERALLY NORTH OF A
   LARGE-SCALE OUTFLOW BOUNDARY. THERMAL GRADIENT ACROSS THE BOUNDARY
   REMAINS STRONG AND STRENGTHENING LOW-LEVEL WAA SHOULD FOSTER
   INCREASING STORM CLUSTERS THROUGH MID-EVENING. SURFACE DEW POINTS
   HAVE GENERALLY MIXED INTO THE UPPER 50S TO MIDDLE 60S OVER NORTHWEST
   OK...SUGGESTIVE OF MAINLY A HAIL/WIND AND BRIEF TORNADO THREAT NEAR
   THE DRYLINE/OUTFLOW INTERSECTION. FARTHER EAST...LOWER 70S SURFACE
   DEW POINTS PERSIST OVER SOUTH-CENTRAL/SOUTHEAST KS. AS THE LOW-LEVEL
   JET INTENSIFIES...THE RISK FOR A COUPLE TORNADIC SUPERCELLS MAY
   INCREASE WITHIN THE EASTERN PORTION OF WW 214.
