   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 361

   SUMMARY...The ongoing cluster of severe storms will likely remain
   capable of damaging hail (some greater than 2 inches) and severe
   wind gusts into this evening.

   DISCUSSION...As of 0215 UTC, regional radar analysis showed a loose
   cluster of strong to severe storms ongoing across east-central CO.
   Over the last 2 hours, several reports of severe hail have occurred
   with these storms. Moderate instability and deep-layer shear remain
   in place ahead of the cluster suggesting a continued risk for strong
   updrafts capable of severe hail, some of which could be greater than
   2 inches. Recent radar trends and surface observations also suggest
   stronger cold pool development is underway, which may eventually
   support the development of a small MCS. Along with the risk for
   hail, damaging wind potential may increase as storms begin to
   propagate east/southeast over the next few hours. However, with the
   onset of nocturnal cooling and air mass overturning from previous
   convection, it remains unclear how far south and east the severe
   threat will persist.
