   0728 PM CDT Thu Jun 29 2017

   Areas affected...east-central Colorado and far western Kansas

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 380...

   Valid 300028Z - 300230Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 380

   SUMMARY...Severe thunderstorms have remained relatively discrete
   across Severe Thunderstorm Watch 380, posing a risk of large hail
   and damaging wind gusts.  This severe-weather threat will continue
   over the next few hours.

   DISCUSSION...Discrete supercells continue to develop off the higher
   terrain of east-central Colorado and move east and southeast over
   the High Plains.  As these storms continue to move into better
   low-level moisture, upscale growth is eventually expected over
   south-west/central Kansas, especially as the low-level jet ramps up
   after 02Z across western Oklahoma and the eastern Texas Panhandle. 
   If the storms evolve in that manner, trends will be monitored for
   the possibility of a downstream watch.
