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.
