   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 440...

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 440

   SUMMARY...The severe threat continues across Severe Thunderstorm
   Watch 440. Damaging gusts are the primary threat with all storms,
   though an instance or two of severe hail remains possible.

   DISCUSSION...A bow-echo MCS continues to progress eastward across
   central into eastern IA, with relatively more discrete multicellular
   storms persisting along a baroclinic zone extending eastward to the
   WI/IL border. Though boundary-layer stabilization has begun, surface
   temperatures remain in the upper 80s F, with surface dewpoints
   between 75-80 F. Given the widespread 6.5 C/km tropospheric lapse
   rates overspreading the aforementioned moisture across the east-west
   oriented baroclinic zone, 4000 J/kg MLCAPE remains in place. As
   such, the bow-echo MCS and preceding convection should continue with
   some vigor for at least a few more hours before more appreciable
   MLCINH sets in. For the next few hours, at least a few damaging
   winds gusts are possible, though an instance or two of marginally
   severe hail are possible with the more dominant updrafts (especially
   with the storms preceding the bow-echo) given the magnitude of CAPE
