Areas affected...portions of west-central Wisconsin and southeastern

Valid 290020Z - 290215Z
The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 376 continues.
SUMMARY...The severe-weather threat across Tornado Watch 376 remains
across the southern half of the watch over the next few hours.
DISCUSSION...Earlier storms and precipitation have stabilized the
environment over the northern portion of the watch while severe
storms (some with supercell characteristics) are continuing to
develop and move southeastward across the southern portion of the
watch. There is a narrow corridor of clear skies ahead of these
storms across far southeastern Minnesota, which should continue to
support severe storms. Farther to the south and east, precipitation
and cloud cover from ongoing storms have modified the environment,
making it less favorable for supporting severe storms. In addition,
loss of diurnal heating will contribute to the eventual weakening of
surface-based storms over the next couple of hours.
