The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 499
SUMMARY...Isolated hail will continue to be the primary threat with
storms this evening.
DISCUSSION...Scattered convection is beginning to mature along the
advancing wind shift over northeast OK with lightning now detected
with updrafts over Osage County. Frontal convection may gradually
increase across northeast OK over the next few hours but overall
intensity of this activity may struggle to produce more than
isolated large hail. Latest MRMS data at times exhibits hail
approaching 1" but mostly marginally severe. One reason may be that
large-scale forcing for ascent lags this region considerably. In
addition, the onset of boundary-layer cooling will result in
updrafts becoming increasingly elevated in nature. Even so, some
threat for isolated severe will continue for the next few hours.
