   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1540
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0922 PM CDT SAT AUG 09 2014

   AREAS AFFECTED...PORTIONS OF SW INTO CNTRL KS

   CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 458...

   VALID 100222Z - 100315Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 458
   CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...ISOLATED STRONG WIND AND SOME HAIL WILL BE POSSIBLE THE
   NEXT COUPLE OF HOURS...BUT OVERALL SEVERE THREAT APPEARS TO BE
   DIMINISHING ACROSS WW 458.

   DISCUSSION...STORMS ACROSS SW KS HAVE WEAKENED OVER THE LAST
   HOUR...WHILE STORMS TO THE W/SW OF HYS PERIODICALLY INTENSIFY AND
   THEN DECREASE AGAIN. THIS AREA OF THE LINE HAS DEVELOPED A BOWING
   SEGMENT WHICH IS PROPAGATING E/SE...BUT APPEARS TO GENERALLY BE
   SUB-SEVERE AS THE GUST FRONT HAS SURGED AHEAD OF THE STORMS /44 KT
   RECENTLY REPORTED AT HYS WITH GUST FRONT/. ADDITIONAL STORMS
   APPROACHING THE CENTRAL KS/NEB STATE LINE TO NEAR CNK MAY EVENTUALLY
   TRACK INTO NORTHEASTERN PORTIONS OF WW 458...BUT WHETHER THEY WILL
   MAINTAIN SEVERE STATUS AS THIS HAPPENS REMAINS UNCERTAIN. AT LEAST A
   SMALL THREAT FOR STRONG WINDS AND SOME HAIL WILL CONTINUE ANOTHER
   COUPLE OF HOURS ACROSS WW 458...BUT THE OVERALL THREAT APPEARS TO BE
   DIMINISHING.
