   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 346

   SUMMARY...A threat of severe wind and hail persists across WW 346,
   and may extend a bit farther southeast into northeastern Oklahoma
   into southwestern Missouri this evening. A new/small watch may be

   DISCUSSION...Scattered severe storms, with a mixture of cells and
   lines, persist from southern KS into northern MO. Cells over
   southwestern KS have shown very large hail cores at times, as well
   as strong winds, and remain relatively discrete. However, a merging
   could occur as the cold front continues to undercut. Over eastern
   Kansas, cells have merged with a cluster of severe storms just
   northeast of Wichita propagating rapidly southward. Damaging winds
   and hail are likely with this activity, which will approach the
   KS/OK state line by around 0430Z. Farther east, storms continue just
   east of the Kansas city area, with indications of damaging winds.

   Storms will continue to shift southeastward this evening, and the
   air mass remains unstable. However, capping will become a concern,
   with 00Z SGF and OUN soundings showing substantial CIN. The greatest
   threat of severe wind and hail will be immediately south of WW 346,
   but it is unclear how far south these storms will remain
