   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1354
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0924 AM CDT FRI JUL 10 2015

   AREAS AFFECTED...CENTRAL/EASTERN KY INTO FAR SOUTHERN OH/WESTERN WV

   CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH LIKELY 

   VALID 101424Z - 101630Z

   PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...80 PERCENT

   SUMMARY...DAMAGING WIND POTENTIAL MAY INCREASE/SPREAD EASTWARD
   ACROSS CENTRAL/EASTERN KY AND POSSIBLY ADJACENT PARTS OF FAR
   SOUTHERN OH/WESTERN WV THROUGH THE AFTERNOON. CLOSELY MONITORING
   DEVELOPMENTAL TRENDS FOR A POSSIBLE SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH
   ISSUANCE.

   DISCUSSION...A FAST-EASTWARD-MOVING /NEARLY 50 KT/ CLUSTER OF STORMS
   HAS RECENTLY INTENSIFIED ACROSS NORTH-CENTRAL KY. THIS DEVELOPMENT
   IS CLOSELY RELATED TO A VORT MAX/MCV AND BELT OF MODERATELY STRONG
   MID-LEVEL FLOW. REGIONAL WSR-88D VWP DATA ARE SHOWING AS MUCH AS
   30-50 KT WEST-SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS WITHIN THE LOWEST 1-6 KM AGL.
   GIVEN THIS FORCING/VERTICAL SHEAR...STORM PERSISTENCE SEEMS LIKELY
   AND ADDITIONAL STORM DEVELOPMENT/UPSCALE GROWTH IS PROBABLE GIVEN
   PRECEDING CLOUD-FREE SKIES AND INCREASINGLY WEAK INHIBITION IN AREAS
   ALONG/SOUTH OF A WEST-EAST FRONTAL ZONE. DAMAGING WINDS WILL BE THE
   PRIMARY CONCERN.
