   Areas affected...Portions of central/eastern KS and far west-central

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 308...

   Valid 270822Z - 270915Z

   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.
