   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   1028 PM CDT TUE JUN 16 2015

   AREAS AFFECTED...NERN CO

   CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 304...

   VALID 170328Z - 170430Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 304
   CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT IS EXPECTED TO DIMINISH ACROSS
   THE AREA OVER THE NEXT HOUR OR TWO AND THE SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH
   WILL BE ALLOWED TO EXPIRE AT 04Z.

   DISCUSSION...RECENT TRENDS IN RADAR DATA INDICATE A GRADUAL
   WEAKENING OF A CONVECTIVE LINE SEGMENT MOVING SEWD THROUGH
   YUMA...KIT CARSON...LINCOLN AND ELBERT COUNTIES IN NERN CO. 
   MODIFICATION OF 00Z RAOBS FOR CURRENT BOUNDARY-LAYER CONDITIONS OVER
   FAR NERN CO INTO NWRN KS SUGGESTS THAT CONVECTIVE INHIBITION HAS
   INCREASED SUBSTANTIALLY AND CAPE HAS DIMINISHED OVER THE PAST HOUR
   OR TWO.  AND WHILE CONVECTION WILL LIKELY REMAIN ACTIVE ALONG
   SEWD-EXPANDING COLD POOLS...UPDRAFT VIGOR WILL BE TEMPERED BY THE
   INCREASINGLY HOSTILE THERMODYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT.  AS SUCH...THE
   THREAT FOR ORGANIZED SEVERE WEATHER APPEARS TO BE DIMINISHING AND
   THE REMAINING VALID PORTIONS OF THE SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH WILL
   BE ALLOWED TO EXPIRE AT 04Z.
