   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1127 PM CDT Thu Jul 06 2017

   Areas affected...portions of central/southern Wisconsin

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 400...

   Valid 070427Z - 070530Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 400

   SUMMARY...Although isolated instances of severe wind and/or hail may
   continue for a couple more hours, a downstream watch is not
   anticipated south of the remaining valid counties in Severe
   Thunderstorm Watch 400.

   DISCUSSION...Scattered strong/occasionally severe storms were in
   progress across central and southern Wisconsin at 0425Z, with the
   strongest storms currently south of the watch area northwest of
   Milwaukee and just north of Madison.  Latest objective analysis
   reveals an environment supportive of a continued risk for isolated
   strong/severe storms with moderate MUCAPE and 30-35 kts of effective
   shear.  Current radar trends suggest that the overall severe risk
   will remain isolated and as a result a downstream watch is not
   currently anticipated.  Nevertheless, a couple stronger storms will
   continue to pose a risk for large hail and damaging wind gusts for
   at least the next 1-2 hours.
