   Areas affected...Northeast OK...Southeast KS

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 499...

   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.
