    Mesoscale Discussion 1565

    Areas affected...central NE...north-central KS

    Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely=20

    Valid 200355Z - 200530Z

    Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

    SUMMARY...A new severe thunderstorm watch to the east of tornado
    watch #450 is not likely as a gradual lessening of the severe threat
    occurs late this evening into the overnight.

    DISCUSSION...Radar mosaic shows a squall line from Thedford, NE
    arching southwestward to the KS/NE/CO border as of 0345 UTC. A
    strong south-southeasterly LLJ will probably continue to strengthen
    over the next several hours and gradually veer to southerly. The
    Goodland, KS and Dodge City, KS WSR-88D VAD data show 40-50 kt being
    sampled around 1 km AGL of the LLJ, indicative of strong low-level
    warm air advection. Despite increasing convective inhibition, rich
    low-level moisture characterized by surface dewpoints near 70 deg F,
    will aid in maintaining a squall line across central NE and far
    northern KS late tonight. However, the aforementioned increase in
    convective inhibition and sub-optimal orientation of the squall line
    with respect to the low- to mid-level shear vector, both suggest a
    lessening in potential for severe gusts overnight. Nonetheless,
    isolated severe gusts may continue for the next several hours but
    the perceived spatial coverage of severe gusts will probably
    preclude the need for an additional watch tonight.
