   ...THERE IS A MRGL RISK OF SVR TSTMS OVER PARTS OF NEB/KS/IA/MO...

   ...THERE IS A MRGL RISK OF SVR TSTMS ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE
   SOUTHEAST STATES...

   ...SUMMARY...
   ISOLATED MARGINALLY SEVERE STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS PARTS OF
   THE CENTRAL PLAINS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING...AS WELL AS PARTS OF
   THE SOUTHEASTERN U.S.

   ...CENTRAL PLAINS...
   WATER VAPOR LOOPS SHOW BROAD CYCLONIC FLOW OVER THE GREAT LAKES
   REGION TODAY...WITH A WEAK SHORTWAVE TROUGH MOVING ACROSS WI/MN. 
   THIS FEATURE WILL GRAZE PARTS OF THE CENTRAL PLAINS THIS
   AFTERNOON...WHERE AMPLE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE AND STRONG INSTABILITY
   WILL BE IN PLACE.  A CONSENSUS OF 12Z MODEL SOLUTIONS SUGGEST THAT
   ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL FORM OVER PARTS OF EASTERN NEB AND
   SOUTHWEST IA AND TRACK SLOWLY SOUTHEASTWARD TOWARD NORTHEAST
   KS/NORTHWEST MO THIS EVENING.  STEEP LOW LEVEL LAPSE RATES AND
   STRENGTH OF CAPE VALUES SUGGEST A MARGINAL RISK OF GUSTY WINDS AND
   HAIL IN THE STRONGEST CELLS.

   ...SOUTHEAST STATES...
   VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS STRONG HEATING OCCURRING OVER PARTS
   OF GA AND NORTH FL...WHERE DEWPOINTS ARE IN THE MID 70S.  THIS WILL
   YIELD AFTERNOON MLCAPE VALUES OF OVER 2000 J/KG.  VERTICAL SHEAR IS
   WEAK AND STORMS WILL BE VERY SLOW MOVING.  HOWEVER...MODEL GUIDANCE
   SUGGESTS SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS WILL AFFECT THIS REGION
   THIS AFTERNOON...WITH A RISK OF GUSTY WINDS IN THE STRONGER CORES. 
   ORGANIZED SEVERE WEATHER IS NOT EXPECTED TODAY.
