   0815 PM CDT Fri May 26 2017

   Areas affected...Portions of southeast Wyoming...southwest Nebraska
   and eastern Colorado

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 268...

   Valid 270115Z - 270215Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 268

   SUMMARY...A short-term continuation of the severe weather threat may
   necessitate a local watch extension in time beyond the scheduled 02z
   expiration of WW 268, however a new watch is not anticipated.

   DISCUSSION...Isolated severe thunderstorms were in progress across
   the watch area at 0115z, with a tornado recently reported in Yuma,
   County CO. Storms posing a more sustained severe threat will be
   moving into recently issued WW 271 by around 02z, however some
   severe risk will likely exist in WW 268 for 1-2 hours beyond 02z as
   modest buoyancy and sufficient effective shear remains in place.
   Thus, a local watch extension in time for portions of WW 268 may be
   needed prior to expiration.
