The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 212
SUMMARY...Numerous strong to severe thunderstorms are ongoing across
central and eastern KS. Severe threat attendant to these storms will
likely continue for at least the next few hours into more of eastern
KS and perhaps far western MO.
DISCUSSION...Several somewhat separate clusters of thunderstorms are
currently ongoing, sustained predominantly by a strong and moist
low-level jet. Southernmost cluster near Wichita has recently shown
a bit more forward propagation and KAAO measured a 60 kt at 0529Z.
Radar presentation of the supercell in Morris continues to show the
presence of a strong updraft. Northernmost areas of thunderstorms
includes numerous supercells arranged in the east-west line just
south of the central NE/KS border. Thus far, none of these storm
clusters have shown significant signs of weakening. Buoyancy does
decrease with eastern extent into MO, but the already organized
character of these storms coupled with the strong low-level jet
suggests the severe threat will likely persist across eastern KS.
