    The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 458

    SUMMARY...The severe thunderstorm threat continues across WW 458 in south-central South Dakota. A favorable environment for isolated
    strong to severe storms is developing across northern South Dakota
    and southern North Dakota. Trends are being monitored across this

    DISCUSSION...Latest radar trends from South Dakota show a few
    isolated cells ongoing within and on the periphery of WW 458. These
    storms have exhibited periods of supercellular characteristics with
    strong hail signatures (via MRSM MESH and vertically integrated ice
    estimates), though thunderstorm coverage has been limited with some
    weakening trends noted in the last half hour. This may be the result
    of somewhat weak forcing for ascent coupled with the onset of
    diurnal cooling. However, water vapor imagery suggests that stronger
    lift associated with an upper-level impulse remains upstream across
    CO/WY. Modest, but persistent, surface pressure falls over the High
    Plains over the past 2 hours support this idea and hint that more
    favorable broad-scale lift may overspread the region in the coming
    hours. Recent HRRR guidance loosely captures this scenario, which is
    supported by the aforementioned observed trends and points towards a continuation of the severe threat at least through the evening

    Further north, gradual destabilization is noted as MUCAPE values
    increase to above 1000 J/kg along the ND/SD border due to low to
    mid-level moisture transport to the north/northwest. Weak convection
    moving out of northwest SD into this environment may undergo
    intensification given the favorable instability, strong deep layer
    shear (nearly 50 knots effective bulk shear sampled by the 00z BIS
    and ABR soundings), and increasing lift through the evening (via
    isentropic ascent in the 850-700 mb layer). While confidence in
    storm coverage is somewhat uncertain, convective trends in this area
    will be monitored.
