   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1028
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0829 PM CDT MON JUN 15 2015

   AREAS AFFECTED...WY...SE ID...NRN UT

   CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 301...

   VALID 160129Z - 160300Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 301
   CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...A SEVERE THREAT IS EXPECTED TO PERSIST THROUGH LATE
   EVENING ACROSS PARTS OF WY...SE ID AND NRN UT. WIND DAMAGE AND
   ISOLATED LARGE HAIL SHOULD BE THE PRIMARY THREATS ALTHOUGH A BRIEF
   TORNADO CAN NOT BE RULED OUT.

   DISCUSSION...LATEST WATER VAPOR SHOWS A SHORTWAVE TROUGH AND A
   WELL-DEFINED VORITICY MAX OVER NRN NV. AT THE SFC...A LOW IS PRESENT
   OVER NW UT WITH BACKED SELY FLOW ACROSS SE ID AND PARTS OF SWRN WY
   WHICH IS HELPING TO ENHANCE LOW-LEVEL CONVERGENCE NEAR THE ID-WY
   STATE LINE. THIS COMBINED WITH INCREASING LARGE-SCALE ASCENT
   ASSOCIATED WITH THE APPROACHING SHORTWAVE TROUGH SHOULD RESULT IN A
   GRADUAL INCREASE IN CONVECTIVE COVERAGE OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS AS
   IS SUPPORTED BY THE HRRR. THE 00Z SOUNDING AT RIVERTON SHOWS SBCAPE
   JUST ABOVE 1200 J/KG WITH 700-500 MB LAPSE RATE NEAR 8.0 C/KM AND
   0-6 KM SHEAR AROUND 55 KT. THIS ENVIRONMENT SHOULD BE FAVORABLE FOR
   SUPERCELLS WITH ISOLATED LARGE HAIL. A BRIEF TORNADO CAN NOT BE
   RULED OUT. AS CELLS GRADUALLY INCREASE IN COVERAGE AND MOVE EWD INTO
   WRN AND CNTRL WY OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS...WIND DAMAGE WILL ALSO BE
   POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY IF CELLS CAN CONGEAL INTO A SEMI-LINEAR
   STRUCTURE.
