   Areas affected...portions of far southern Minnesota into central

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 438...440...

   Valid 052349Z - 060115Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 438, 440

   SUMMARY...The severe threat associated with a bow-echo MCS continues
   across Severe Thunderstorm Watch 438, towards western parts of
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch 440. Widespread severe gusts remain a
   concern and a couple of significant gusts are still possible over
   the next couple of hours.

   DISCUSSION...A mature derecho-producing MCS continues to translate
   across far southern MN into central IA with a recent history of
   producing measured severe wind gusts. The 23Z mesoanalysis still
   shows a reservoir of extreme instability overspread by 35 kts of
   effective bulk shear out ahead of the MCS. The MCS bow remains
   north-south oriented and is progressing due east. Since the
   deep-layer shear vectors are oriented roughly normal to the MCS, the
   ambient CAPE/shear parameter space will continue to support a
   bow-echo structure with widespread strong to severe wind gusts.
   Given the magnitude of MLCAPE ahead of the MCS and organized nature
   of the MCS, a couple of significant severe wind gusts are still
   possible into the early evening hours.
