   Mesoscale Discussion 0845
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0815 PM CDT Sun May 19 2024

   Areas affected...southeastern Kansas

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 260...262...

   Valid 200115Z - 200315Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 260, 262

   SUMMARY...Stronger surface gusts, perhaps occasionally exceeding 70
   mph, may be maintained with an evolving cluster of storms northeast
   and east of Wichita toward the Joplin MO/Bartlesville OK vicinities
   through 10-11 PM CDT.

   DISCUSSION...Trailing one still well-defined MCV now migrating
   eastward along the I-70 corridor near Manhattan, a second MCV is
   becoming better-defined along intersecting outflow boundaries to the
   north of Wichita.  Associated with this evolution, measured gusts to
   75 kt were recorded in Hutchinson at 0039Z.  Although inflow into
   the convective system may become less unstable due to somewhat drier
   low-level air across much of eastern Kansas/Oklahoma, strong to
   severe gusts may continue at least another couple of hours to the
   southwest/south of the evolving southern MCV.
