   Areas affected...southeast Kansas...southwest Missouri...northeast
   Oklahoma and far northwest Arkansas.

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

   Valid 080638Z - 080815Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

   SUMMARY...A line of storms across southeast Kansas may produce
   isolated damaging wind gusts as it moves southeast this morning.

   DISCUSSION...A cluster of storms across eastern Kansas has become
   somewhat better organized in the past 30 minutes. The more outflow
   dominant appearance on 0.5 degree reflectivity from KTWX and KEAX
   has become better balanced and subsequently, echo tops have
   increased. This is likely related to the strengthening low-level jet
   (50 knots per INX VWP) across the region. A dry airmass across
   Missouri has triggered a quick demise of stronger storms that move
   out of Kansas. However, there remains a corridor of better moisture
   and buoyancy across southeast Kansas and northeast Oklahoma with
   modest moisture in southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas. This
   may support strong/occasionally severe wind gusts with the squall
   line as it moves southeast through the morning hours.
