Areas affected...portions of northwest KS
Concerning...Tornado Watch 200...
Valid 242042Z - 242145Z
The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 200 continues.
SUMMARY...The tornado risk over the next 1-2 hours will be greatest
across parts of northwest KS in the vicinity of an outflow boundary.
DISCUSSION...Several tornadoes have been reported recently across
northeast Wallace/northwest Logan and southwest Thomas counties in
northwest KS. The supercell associated with this tornadic activity
is tracking northeastward in the vicinity of an outflow boundary.
This boundary is enhancing low level vorticity and low level shear,
and supercells in this vicinity are likely to continue producing
tornadoes over the next 1-2 hours. A mature supercell further south
over northern Wichita and southern Logan county has shown moderate
rotation over the past hour. As this cell lifts northeast, it is
possible the tornado threat could increase with this cell as well as
it encounters the outflow boundary and more favorable low level
