   Mesoscale Discussion 1078
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1155 PM CDT Sat Jun 17 2017

   Areas affected...Southeast Kansas...northeast Oklahoma...southwest

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 347...348...

   Valid 180455Z - 180630Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 347, 348

   SUMMARY...Localized areas of damaging winds and hail may persist for
   a couple more hours as storms move out of Kansas.

   DISCUSSION...A broken line of cells and small bows continues
   southward near the KS border, with winds in excess of 50 kts
   measured at multiple sites. Cells have begun to shrivel over far
   western areas, with the main threat area now southeast KS into
   northeast OK and far southwest MO. Due to capping, storms are
   expected to weaken as they near the southern edge of the watch. A
   storm or two may remain strong a bit farther south, but another
   watch is not expected.
