   Areas affected...Southwest KS...Eastern OK/TX Panhandles...Northwest

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 365...

   Valid 130355Z - 130600Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 365

   SUMMARY...Severe threat will spread southeast across ww365.

   DISCUSSION...Broken squall line has developed over western KS,
   extending southwest into the western OK Panhandle. This activity is
   not moving particularly fast, about 25kt, but will likely continue
   propagating southeast along an instability axis, aided by southerly
   LLJ. A few marginally severe hail cores are currently noted within
   stronger updrafts, but locally strong winds should be the primary
   concern as this activity spreads southeast. At this time it's not
   clear whether the intensity of the squall line will warrant a new
   watch downstream; however, trends will be monitored nonetheless.
