   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1082
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0511 AM CDT SAT JUN 20 2015

   AREAS AFFECTED...SOUTHWEST TO SOUTH-CENTRAL MN AND NORTHWEST IA

   CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 316...

   VALID 201011Z - 201115Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 316
   CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...A FEW STRONG/SEVERE WIND GUSTS REMAIN POSSIBLE EARLY THIS
   MORNING /PRIOR TO SUNRISE/ AS A LINE OF STORMS ADVANCES EAST INTO
   SOUTH-CENTRAL MN AND THROUGH NORTHWEST IA.  ALTHOUGH A FEW STRONGER
   WIND GUSTS COULD OCCUR TO THE EAST OF WW 316 AS STORMS REACH THIS
   AREA OF SOUTHEAST MN AND ADJACENT NRN IA BY 11Z...AN OVERALL
   DIMINISHING SEVERE RISK WILL PERSIST...PRECLUDING NEW WW ISSUANCE.

   DISCUSSION...RECENT TRENDS IN MOSAIC RADAR IMAGERY INDICATED SOME
   DECELERATION OF THE LINE OF STORMS...CURRENTLY MOVING EAST INTO
   SOUTH-CENTRAL MN AND THROUGH NORTHWEST IA...THOUGH SPEEDS WERE
   AROUND 50 KT AT 950Z.  HOWEVER...SINCE ABOUT 09Z...WIND GUSTS PER
   SURFACE OBSERVATIONS WITH THE PASSAGE OF THE LINE OF STORMS HAVE
   BEEN SUB-SEVERE.  ADDITIONAL WEAKENING OF THIS FORWARD-PROPAGATING
   MCS IS EXPECTED THROUGH 11-13Z AS THESE STORMS MOVE FARTHER AWAY
   FROM A SOURCE OF GREATER MOISTURE/BUOYANCY LOCATED OVER PARTS OF THE
   MID MO VALLEY.
