   Areas affected...southeast NE and northeast KS

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

   Valid 020754Z - 020930Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

   SUMMARY...Isolated severe hail will be possible through about
   sunrise with an arc of elevated thunderstorms across northeast
   Kansas to southeast Nebraska.

   DISCUSSION...Nearly simultaneous to the decay of an MCS over
   southwest KS/northwest OK, a band of elevated convection intensified
   across northeast KS/southeast NE. This activity appears to be driven
   by low-level warm theta-e advection along the MUCAPE gradient. While
   the 06Z HRRR has minimal reflection of this development, the
   Hastings and Topeka VWPs indicate moderate low-level
   south-southwesterly flow. Moderate upper-level west-northwesterlies
   will remain adequate for transient supercell structures and hail
   growth. Still, the cluster to loosely linear convective mode should
   temper peak hail sizes to the 1-1.5 inches in diameter range.
