   Areas affected...Central/Eastern KY...Far Southern OH

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 327...

   Valid 270442Z - 270615Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 327 continues.

   SUMMARY...Threat for damaging gusts and line-embedded QLCS tornadoes
   remains possible.

   DISCUSSION...Organized convective line continues to push eastward
   across central KY at around 40 kt. At the this speed, the line
   should move into eastern KY at around 0530Z and to the edge of
   Tornado Watch 327 around 0730 to 0800Z. Updrafts have largely
   maintained their intensity over the past hour, which is a testament
   to the organized character of the line given the reduced buoyancy it
   has encountered. Vertical shear remains strong and the line is
   oriented favorably for continued forward propagation. Damaging wind
   gusts will be the primary threat within this line as it continues
   eastward. The JKL VAD continues to show strong low-level shear with
   notable veering with height, suggesting that some line-embedded QLCS
   tornadoes are still possible, particularly in any surge within the
   line. One such surge may be possible soon with the strong updraft on
   the southern end of the line over south-central KY.
