   Mesoscale Discussion 0852
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1003 PM CDT Fri May 26 2017

   Areas affected...Northwest Kansas...southwest Nebraska

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 271...

   Valid 270303Z - 270500Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 271

   SUMMARY...The threat for damaging winds and large hail will continue
   across mainly northern portions of the watch area.

   DISCUSSION...Severe thunderstorms were located just northeast of
   Goodland KS and northwest of Burlington CO at 0255z, with a history
   of large hail and damaging winds across northwest KS during the past
   hour. Strong thunderstorm winds were also reported at Sydney NE at
   0236z. Radar presentation from KGLD strongly suggest an expanding
   damaging wind risk with a linear/bowing segment appearance, and
   continued upscale growth is expected as cold pool consolidation
   occurs. As the low-level jet further strengthens over the next few
   hours, moderate elevated instability should continue to feed into
   the complex as it moves generally east over northwest Kansas.  As
   such, a local spatial watch extension may be needed in the next hour
   over the WFO GLD county warning area.
