The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 343
SUMMARY...The severe thunderstorm threat will continue.
Thunderstorms are developing/continuing along a surface cold front
across Nebraska. Additional thunderstorms have developed farther
south in parts of northwest Kansas. The large-scale environment will
continue to support a severe potential into the evening.
DISCUSSION...A surface-cold front continues to move south and east
this evening. Convergence along this front has allowed for the
development and maintenance of several severe thunderstorms across
southern Nebraska, with additional thunderstorms along a myriad of
surface boundaries in northwest Kansas. Mixed-layer CAPE around 3000
J/kg and deep-layer shear around 30-40 knots along and ahead of
these storms will maintain an environment supportive of severe
thunderstorms capable of producing gusty winds and large hail.
Additionally, sufficient combination of 0-3km CAPE values and
surface vorticity in the region will support the potential for a
landspout or two with any vigorous updraft that persists atop any
surface boundary. Additionally as thunderstorms from the northern
cluster (Lincoln County, NE) interact with thunderstorms from the
southern cluster (Hayes County, NE) an increase in the potential for
all severe modes may briefly occur.
