   Mesoscale Discussion 0453
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0142 AM CDT Tue Apr 16 2024

   Areas affected...South-central/southeast NE and
   north-central/northeast KS

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 113...

   Valid 160642Z - 160745Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 113 continues.

   SUMMARY...Cluster of severe storms across north-central KS into
   south-central NE should be maintained east-northeast through the
   pre-dawn hours. A downstream/replacement of WW 113 will likely occur
   prior to its scheduled expiration at 08Z.

   DISCUSSION...Convection has consolidated into a small linear
   cluster, mainly across north-central KS. Thus far, measured severe
   gusts to 60 mph and hail to 1.25 inches have been reported. Given
   the increasing linear character, it is plausible that a swath of
   severe wind mixed with hail will persist east-northeast into parts
   of northeast KS and southeast NE during the next few hours. Despite
   downstream surface dew points largely holding in the low 60s, MLCIN
   is weak. With 40-50 kt 0-1 km shear, low-level mesovortices are
   possible as well.
