   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 487 continues.

   SUMMARY...A damaging gust or two remains possible with one of the
   stronger storms, though the overall severe threat is expected to

   DISCUSSION...MRMS mosaic radar imagery depicts decreasing storm
   coverage and an overall decrease in 30 dBZ echo top heights across
   northwestern portions of Tornado Watch 487. As deep-layer ascent
   continues to drift away from portions of south-central Nebraska in
   tandem with nocturnal cooling, low-level lift will further weaken
   with time, as will storm intensity. Nonetheless, given ample
   vertical shear across the region and some residual buoyancy (1000+
   J/kg MLCAPE), storms may remain organized enough to support a
   damaging gust or two over the next couple of hours.
