    Areas affected...Parts of northeastern Colorado...southwestern Nebraska...northwestern and north central Kansas

    Concerning...Tornado Watch 209...210...

    Valid 262244Z - 270045Z

    The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 209, 210 continues.

    SUMMARY...Increasing and intensifying thunderstorm development into
    the 7-9 PM CDT time frame. This will probably continue to include a
    few supercells with increasing tornadic potential, along with
    potential for the evolution of organizing thunderstorm clusters.=20
    Areas to the east of the Tornado Watches will continue to monitored
    for additional severe weather watches.

    DISCUSSION...Although isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms are
    now initiating along the dryline, a much more substantive increase
    in thunderstorms is underway along a corridor from the Russell, KS
    vicinity northwestward through the McCook and Scottsbluff areas of
    western Nebraska. This appears focused within a broad zone of
    lower/mid tropospheric warm advection, northeast of somewhat warmer
    and more strongly capping elevated mixed-layer air (as inferred from
    700 mb thermal fields).

    Storms near Russell also appear focused near a zone of locally
    enhanced boundary-layer convergence, near the eastern periphery of a
    20-30 kt southerly 850 mb jet, which is forecast to strengthen to 40
    kt this evening. While there may be a tendency for this convection
    to begin to advect eastward, in the presence of 20-30 kt
    west-southwesterly ambient deep-layer mean flow, until the low-level
    jet begins to veer later this evening, strong storm development
    probably will remain focused near/west-northwest of the Russell

    Otherwise, a general increase and intensification of thunderstorm
    activity probably will continue across parts of the Nebraska
    Panhandle and southwestern into south central Nebraska through
    00-02Z, with a tendency for activity to advect east/northeast of the
    Tornado Watch area. However, strongest storms, including discrete
    supercells and upscale growing clusters, probably will remain
    focused near the edge of the warmer/more strongly capping elevated
    mixed-layer air, where the more moist and strongly heated
    boundary-layer is characterized by large CAPE (up to 3000 J/kg).=20=20

    As the southerly low-level jet begins to strengthen by early
    evening, the risk for tornadoes in discrete supercells will probably
    continue to increase, include potential for a couple of strong
