   Areas affected...central MN into northwest WI

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 192...

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 192

   SUMMARY...Severe thunderstorms capable of large hail will continue
   across parts of central Minnesota this morning. This activity may
   continue to pose a severe threat into parts of northwest Wisconsin
   over the next 2-3 hours.

   DISCUSSION...Fast moving, elevated severe thunderstorms continue to
   pose a threat for large hail this morning. This activity is quickly
   approaching the eastern edges of greater elevated instability on the
   nose of a strong low-level jet and warm advection regime. The 12z
   RAOB from MSP shows very steep 700-500 mb lapse rates and strong
   vertical shear, supporting continued organized cells capable of
   large hail. With northeastward extent a gradual weakening trend is
   expected. However, severe hail will continue to be possible across
   northeastern portions of WW 192 and may spread into a small portion
   of northwest WI over the next 2-3 hours before sufficient weaken
   below severe limits occurs. As a result, a small downstream watch
   will likely be needed soon.
