   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1277
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0106 AM CDT THU JUL 02 2015

   AREAS AFFECTED...E-CNTRL WY / EXTREME SWRN SD / NRN NEB PANHANDLE

   CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH POSSIBLE 

   VALID 020606Z - 020700Z

   PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...40 PERCENT

   SUMMARY...50-70 MPH WIND GUSTS AND ISOLD LARGE HAIL ARE POSSIBLE
   OVER THE NEXT 1-2 HOURS AS A STORM CLUSTER MOVES SSEWD ACROSS THE
   NRN PORTIONS OF THE NEB PANHANDLE.

   DISCUSSION...RADAR MOSAIC SHOWS A CLUSTER OF STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS
   /RECENTLY MEASURED 60+ MPH WIND GUSTS/ MOVING SEWD INTO A BUOYANCY
   AXIS LOCATED FROM THE CNTRL PLAINS NWWD INTO THE NEB PANHANDLE.  A
   FINE LINE DEPICTED IN MOSAIC IMAGERY IS ORIENTED NW-SE ACROSS
   S-CNTRL NEB NEAR HSI IS MOVING WWD WHILE AN OUTFLOW BOUNDARY
   ORIENTED PRIMARILY N-S IS LOCATED OVER SWRN NEB AND NWRN KS. 
   DESPITE THE LACK OF A LLJ AND ASSOCIATED WAA REGIME AIDING TO
   SUSTAIN THIS STORM COMPLEX...A MOIST BOUNDARY LAYER CHARACTERIZED BY
   LOW 60S DEWPOINTS AND AN ORGANIZING COLD POOL WILL SERVE AS SUPPORT
   FOR STORMS TO CONTINUE SEWD INTO AT LEAST W-CNTRL NEB AND PERHAPS
   AREAS FARTHER SSE.  WHILE THE SEVERE STORM RISK IS ANTICIPATED TO
   REMAIN FAIRLY ISOLD...STRONG TO SEVERE WIND GUSTS AND LARGE HAIL
   NEAR THE MOST INTENSE CORES ARE POSSIBLE.
