    Mesoscale Discussion 1576
    NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
    0221 PM CDT Sun Aug 22 2021

    Areas affected...the east-central Dakotas

    Concerning...Severe potential...Watch likely=20

    Valid 221921Z - 222145Z

    Probability of Watch Issuance...80 percent

    SUMMARY...Storms will likely form by 21Z, with severe hail or a
    tornado possible as they mature across the Dakotas.

    DISCUSSION...Surface analysis shows a low over north-central ND,
    with a developing cold front extending south/southwestward into
    western SD, and a dryline from near BIS to PIR. A diffuse warm front
    extends east from the low across ND, where pockets of heating and
    low-level warm advection are helping to slowly destabilize the air

    Moisture quality is a concern across the region, but cooling aloft
    as well as strong lift along the front will likely result in a few
    severe storms after 20-21Z. Wind profiles are favorable or
    supercells with deep-layer shear around 50 kt and increasing SRH.
    Given drying behind the cold front, and relatively coolness
    currently over the eastern Dakotas, only a narrow ribbon of surface-based/effective SRH is expected to exist immediately ahead
    of the front. Tornado potential is heavily dependent on
    boundary-layer moisture quality, but the overall supercell setup
    appears favorable. As such, a watch will likely be needed. Large
    hail will be a distinct threat given expected storm mode as well as
    cool temperatures aloft.
