The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 257
SUMMARY...Damaging wind gusts are possible for another couple of
hours across parts of eastern Nebraska and perhaps far southwest
DISCUSSION...A south/southeastward-advancing bow is producing
near-severe level wind speeds this morning across northeast NE.
Recently, a 49 kt gust was measured at KOFK. Velocity data from KOAX
also shows strong inbound signatures while the VWP from KFSD
indicated a rear-inflow jet up to 65 kt around 1-2 km. The bowing
segment will tracking along a stronger instability gradient amid
modest shear and strong low level inhibition. Nevertheless, wind
gusts around 45-55 kt appear possible at least in the short term,
and could persist another 1-2 hours. A local extension of WW 257 or
a new downstream watch is being considered.
