   Areas affected...Portions of central and northern Kansas into
   southeast Nebraska

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 257...

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 257

   SUMMARY...An isolated severe threat continues, mainly with organized
   storm clusters in south-central Nebraska and central Kansas. As
   boundary layer stabilization sets in, an overall decrease in the
   severe threat is anticipated, and a downstream WW issuance is not

   DISCUSSION...A small MCV is currently traversing the south-central
   Nebraska region, with a multicellular cluster located across
   Barton/Ellsworth Counties in Kansas. Both convective complexes have
   only produced sparse severe over the past couple of hours. In
   addition, both complexes are beginning to outrun the favorable
   instability axis, with MLCAPE decreasing below 1000 J/kg downstream
   of the aforementioned clusters (per TOP/OAX 00Z observed soundings).
   Modest effective bulk shear values of around 40 knots and over 200
   m2/s2 of effective SRH suggest that a few storms (especially those
   associated with the southern Nebraska MCV) may produce an isolated
   severe hail/wind gust or two and perhaps a brief tornado in the near
   term. Otherwise, the overall severe threat is expected to gradually
   decrease with time.
