   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1143
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0538 PM CDT TUE JUN 24 2014

   AREAS AFFECTED...SRN KANSAS...NRN OKLAHOMA AND ADJACENT PORTIONS OF
   THE TEXAS PANHANDLE

   CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 352...

   VALID 242238Z - 250015Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 352
   CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...THE RISK FOR SEVERE HAIL CONTINUES...AND DAMAGING WIND
   POTENTIAL COULD STILL INCREASE DURING THE NEXT FEW
   HOURS...PARTICULARLY ACROSS SOUTHWEST KANSAS INTO NORTHWEST OKLAHOMA
   AND THE NORTHEAST TEXAS PANHANDLE.  TRENDS WILL BE MONITORED FOR THE
   POSSIBILITY OF AN ADDITIONAL WW SOUTH OF WW 352.

   DISCUSSION...LARGE-SCALE FORCING FOR UPWARD VERTICAL MOTION TO
   MAINTAIN ONGOING CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT ACROSS SOUTHERN KANSAS IS
   BECOMING INCREASINGLY UNCLEAR.  HOWEVER...WEAK WEST TO NORTHWEST
   MID/UPPER FLOW SHOULD CONTRIBUTE TO A SLOW SOUTHWARD PROPAGATION OF
   CONVECTION INTO NORTHERN OKLAHOMA AND ADJACENT AREAS OF THE TEXAS
   PANHANDLE THROUGH EARLY EVENING.  THE BOUNDARY LAYER IN ADVANCE OF
   THIS ACTIVITY IS RELATIVELY MOIST WITH MODERATELY LARGE CAPE...AND
   SHOULD BE CONDUCIVE FOR CONTINUING VIGOROUS NEW STORM DEVELOPMENT
   ALONG THE CONGLOMERATING SOUTHWARD ADVANCING COLD POOLS GENERATED BY
   THE CONVECTION.  STRONGEST AMBIENT SOUTHERLY LOW-LEVEL
   FLOW...CONTRIBUTING TO STRONGEST SYSTEM-RELATIVE INFLOW...APPEARS
   FOCUSED ACROSS THE TEXAS PANHANDLE AND FAR WESTERN OKLAHOMA INTO THE
   SEGMENT OF THE CONVECTIVE LINE WHICH HAS RECENTLY ADVANCED SOUTH OF
   GARDEN CITY.  THIS COULD CONTRIBUTE TO SOUTHWARD ACCELERATION OF THE
   LINE EAST OF LIBERAL KS THROUGH THE OKLAHOMA/TEXAS BORDER AREA WEST
   OF GAGE THROUGH 00-02Z...PERHAPS ACCOMPANIED BY THE HIGHEST
   PROBABILITIES FOR SEVERE WIND GUSTS.
