   Mesoscale Discussion 0671
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1156 PM CDT Mon May 06 2024

   Areas affected...Central IA into MO and far western IL/southern IA

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 191...192...

   Valid 070456Z - 070630Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 191, 192 continues.

   SUMMARY...Damaging wind and perhaps a couple line-embedded tornadoes
   remain possible overnight as an extensive QLCS moves eastward.
   Downstream watch issuance may eventually be needed.

   DISCUSSION...An extensive QLCS has recently moved through areas
   near/south of Kansas City, with multiple mesovortices recently noted
   along the leading edge of the line. Downstream, the environment
   remains favorably unstable into central MO, with somewhat cooler and
   more stable conditions noted into northeast MO, though some recovery
   remains possible into this area prior to storm arrival. 

   Low-level shear/SRH remains strong according to regional VWPs, and a
   threat for line-embedded tornadoes and damaging gusts will continue
   eastward through the early overnight hours. Some threat is likely to
   eventually move eastward out of WW 192, and downstream watch
   issuance into parts of central/eastern MO may eventually be needed.
