   Areas affected...portions of eastern NE and western IA

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 257...

   Valid 111228Z - 111400Z

   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.
