Areas affected...Portions of central/northeast Kansas

Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 251...

Valid 010451Z - 010615Z

The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 251
continues.

SUMMARY...While there is a residual threat for a few damaging gusts,
storms should weaken over the next few hours, reducing the severe
threat.

DISCUSSION...A small line of strong/severe storms is moving
east/southeast around 40-45 kt this evening. Despite increasing
convective inhibition with eastward extent, strong forced ascent
along the cold pool is sustaining robust convection within the line,
and damaging/severe gusts have occurred intermittently with the
line. Still, stable air with eastward extent, as well as weaker
storm-relative inflow, should lead to a downward intensity trend
over then next several hours. While a localized severe threat may
continue through about 06Z, new watch issuance is not expected.
