   Mesoscale Discussion 0905
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0446 PM CDT Sun May 28 2017

   Areas affected...Northwestern Pennsylvania...northern
   Ohio...southeastern Lower Michigan...and northeastern Indiana

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 292...

   Valid 282146Z - 282245Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 292

   SUMMARY...The severe threat continues for WW 292, and an isolated
   severe threat exists across northwestern Pennsylvania and central
   Indiana in the short term.

   DISCUSSION...Scattered, mainly hail-producing storms continue across
   remaining valid portions of WW 292 at this time.  A few severe wind
   gusts have also been reported with some of the activity.  These
   storms are mostly multicellular in nature, with marginal deep shear
   on the southern fringes of the watch for any storm organization. 
   Continued moderate (1000-1500 J/kg MUCAPE) will continue to foster a
   severe threat with the strongest, most organized activity.  A
   limited severe threat will also exist southwest of the watch into
   central Indiana, where a few linear segments have developed and are
   beginning to propagate eastward toward the Indianapolis Metro area. 
   Additionally, a north-south oriented surface trough over western
   Pennsylvania has aided in some brief supercell structures in that
   region (most recently in Clarion County, PA) and large hail.  This
   brief supercell threat will continue through dark, although the
   severe threat should remain isolated enough that a WW
   extension/replacement shouldn't be needed.
