   Areas affected...Western Nebraska and far northeast Colorado

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 268...

   Valid 140015Z - 140215Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 268

   SUMMARY...Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms should continue to
   move eastward across west Nebraska this evening, and will pose a
   risk for hail as well as strong winds. A more robust damaging wind
   threat may evolve in the coming hours, but confidence is somewhat

   DISCUSSION...Thunderstorms that initially developed in the vicinity
   of a surface low across southeast WY continue to gradually shift
   east within the mean flow regime. This activity has produced several
   hail reports, with a few hail stones up to 1.75 inches noted. Storm
   motions and wide spacing have made cold pool consolidation
   difficult, so little upscale growth has occurred and the wind threat
   has been somewhat limited spatially. New development within a
   diffuse surface warm front along the NE/SD border may experience
   favorable storm motion/initiating boundary orientations to foster
   upscale growth over the next 1-2 hours, which could support a more
   robust damaging wind threat given steep low-level lapse rates. The
   overall weak deep-layer flow casts some uncertainty into this
   scenario, however. If this occurs, a downstream watch across central
   NE may be considered. Otherwise, the severe threat should remain
   fairly isolated as storms continue to meander further into western
   NE and far northeast CO.
