   DISCUSSION...SEVERE STORMS FROM ERN CO INTO NWRN KS CONTINUE TO
   EVOLVE NWD AIDED BY A MERIDIONAL SHORTWAVE-TROUGH. STORMS HAVE
   ORGANIZED INTO TWO MAIN LINES WHICH SHOULD CONTINUE TO PROPAGATE
   NNEWD INTO NEB LATER THIS EVENING. OTHER ISOLATED STORMS WERE
   ONGOING ACROSS SWRN NEB NEAR THE FRONT WHERE HODOGRAPH LENGTH IS
