   Areas of western Kentucky

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 212...

   Valid 082329Z - 090100Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 212 continues.

   SUMMARY...Severe/tornado risk continues across portions of western
   Kentucky, within Tornado Watch 212.

   DISCUSSION...Recent KLVX WSR-88D radar loop shows clusters of
   strong/severe storms moving eastward across eastern portions of WW
   212 into WW 206 at this time.  Widespread ongoing/prior convection
   across central Kentucky has resulted in a decrease in instability
   downstream, but moderately strong deep-layer southwesterly flow
   should support a continuation of the organized nature of the storms,
   along with associated risk for damaging wind gusts and marginal
   hail, along with potential for a brief tornado over the next 1 to 2
