The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 308
SUMMARY...An isolated strong to severe wind threat continues in the
short term, but the overall severe risk should gradually diminish
early this morning.
DISCUSSION...Consolidation of multiple clusters has occurred over
the past couple of hours across KS and into the Kansas City metro.
Overall radar presentation has recently become less organized as
convective inhibition continues to increase along/south of ongoing
storms. Even so, the more organized/strongest segment of the cluster
is now moving across the Kansas City metro, with mainly an isolated
strong to damaging wind threat. As the 35-45 kt southwesterly
low-level jet over KS gradually weakens through the remainder of the
early morning, the expectation is for a slow weakening trend to
ongoing storms within Severe Thunderstorm Watch 308. Accordingly, a
downstream/replacement watch for east-central KS into far
west-central MO is not anticipated at this time.
