Areas affected...portions of western/central WI
Concerning...Tornado Watch 371...
Valid 152019Z - 152145Z
The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 371 continues.
SUMMARY...Increasing potential for tornadoes and large hail expected
in a corridor across west-central into central WI over the next
couple of hours.
DISCUSSION...Initially messy convection developing along and just
ahead of the surface cold front across northeast IA and western WI
is showing signs of organization over the last 15-30 minutes. This
activity is moving into a corridor of backed low-level surface
winds. Increasing rotation aloft has been noted in KARX data and
this trend may continue with eastward extent over the next couple of
hours. Latest VWP data from KARX continues to show an enlarged,
favorably curved low-level hodograph with 0-1 SRH values now around
250-300 m2/s2 as low-level flow has increased somewhat over the last
couple of hours. As convection encounters this corridor of more
favorable low-level shear within a strongly unstable environment, an
increase in tornado potential as well as large hail is expected.
