   Areas affected...Western Dakotas

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 318...

   Valid 300242Z - 300445Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 318 continues.

   SUMMARY...Severe threat is focusing mainly across the western

   DISCUSSION...Earlier supercells that formed over eastern MT/western
   ND have merged and grown upscale into a squall line over western ND.
   Latest radar data suggests the leading bow-type structure over
   Montrail County is moving northeast at 25kt and will likely exit the
   watch in a little over 1hr. Given the evolution into a linear MCS,
   it appears gusty winds will be the most common threat along the
   leading edge of this convection. Even so, some hail threat remains
   with embedded supercell structures. Watch will likely need to be
   extended downstream to include the northeastern-most counties of BIS
