   Mesoscale Discussion 1103
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0618 PM CDT Tue Jun 20 2017

   Areas affected...Central and western Kansas into far southeast

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 357...

   Valid 202318Z - 210115Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 357

   SUMMARY...Large hail remains likely mainly over western Kansas and
   into far southeastern Colorado, with isolated damaging wind gusts.
   Isolated hail may eventually spread eastward across north central

   DISCUSSION...Numerous storms are currently ongoing across western
   KS, with several strong to severe also extending southwestward into
   southeast CO. Veering winds in the low-levels beneath northwest flow
   aloft will continue to support mainly southward-moving cells, with
   some supercell potential resulting in large hail and strong wind
   gusts. New cell generation has been noted recently over northwest
   Kansas, but these cells are unlikely to pose more than a marginal
   threat due to outflow to the south.

   A few of the storms near Hays/Russell are merging and may post a
   wind/hail threat across central KS. However, the far eastern rows of
   counties including the I-35 corridor, and south-central KS may not
   see much storm activity due to increasing CIN this evening.
   Therefore, it is possible that extreme eastern portions of the watch
   may be canceled early.
