   Mesoscale Discussion 1695
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0558 PM CDT Thu Aug 18 2022

   Areas affected...southern and eastern Nebraska into far southeastern
   South Dakota and western Iowa

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 520...

   Valid 182258Z - 190100Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 520

   SUMMARY...Severe-weather risk continues with isolated storms moving
   eastward/southeastward in and near WW 520.

   DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop shows isolated intense updrafts along
   a surface front now draped from far southwestern Minnesota to
   south-central Nebraska.  Ahead of this boundary, a corridor of
   moderate instability (mixed-layer CAPE averaging 1000 to 2000 J/kg)
   will continue to fuel isolated storms, with updraft organization
   aided by veering/increasing flow with height yielding favorable
   shear (in excess of 40 kt in the 0-6km layer).  The most intense of
   these storms will remain capable of producing hail greater than
   golf-ball size, and wind gusts above 50 kt.
