   Areas affected...much of central South Dakota into northern Nebraska

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 404...

   Valid 102232Z - 110100Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 404

   SUMMARY...A threat of severe gusts and localized hail may spread
   east/southeast out of WW 404 into central South Dakota and northern

   DISCUSSION...A line of storms producing locally severe gusts has
   consolidated across west-central SD, with an additional cluster of
   cells over northwest NE. Merging/colliding outflows may aid further
   development from south-central SD into parts of northern NE this

   Northeastern parts of the line have weakened recently as it has
   interacted with cooler air. Objective analysis and surface obs show
   a surface theta-e gradient just east of the existing watch, and
   given the northeast/southwest line orientation, the primary severe
   risk is forecast to translate southward over time, as new
   development prefers the warmer boundary layer. As such, a new watch
   may be considered.
