   Mesoscale Discussion 1312
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0749 AM CDT Sun Jun 30 2019

   Areas affected...southern Minnesota...much of western Wisconsin

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 465...

   Valid 301249Z - 301445Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 465

   SUMMARY...Strong to locally severe wind gusts remain possible,
   mainly east of the Mississippi river in the near term.

   DISCUSSION...An MCS continues to surge southward across northwest WI
   and east-central MN, riding along the instability gradient and in a
   zone of modest low-level warm air advection. The strongest outflow
   push is over western WI, just on the eastern edge of the stronger
   instability. The 12Z MPX sounding shows impressively steep lapse
   rates, effectively no cap, and modest westerly winds through a deep
   layer. Therefore, little heating will be needed to erode CIN over
   southern WI, IA, and northern IL today, and this should support a
   continued wind threat with the MCS. Additional watch area may be
   needed south or east of WW 465 later this morning.
