   Mesoscale Discussion 0562
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0908 PM CDT Mon May 28 2018

   Areas affected...Portions of southwestern/south-central KS into the
   TX/OK Panhandles and northwestern OK

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 129...

   Valid 290208Z - 290315Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 129

   SUMMARY...Mainly a damaging wind and isolated large hail threat
   continues across eastern portions of WW 129. While downstream watch
   issuance remains unlikely, a local extension in time of the Severe
   Thunderstorm Watch beyond the scheduled 03Z expiration time may be
   needed if current radar trends continue.

   DISCUSSION...Across southwestern KS convection has organized into a
   line with multiple wind gust/damage reports, including a 73 mph gust
   recorded at Garden City, KS at 0106Z. Mainly a damaging wind threat
   should continue into parts of south-central KS over the next hour or
   two before increasing convective inhibition likely reduces the
   overall severe threat. Farther south into the central/eastern TX/OK
   Panhandles, convection has remained a bit more discrete, with
   several supercells producing hail up to baseball size noted. A
   downstream watch into northwestern OK and central KS remains
   unlikely due to a less favorable thermodynamic environment with
   eastward extent, but a local extension in time of WW 129 for an hour
   or two may be needed if current radar trends continue.
