   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 409

   SUMMARY...Cluster of severe thunderstorms will propagate across
   southeast Iowa/northeast Missouri into western Illinois. Very large
   hail, possibly in excess of 2 inches, can be expected with this

   DISCUSSION...An expanding cluster of severe thunderstorms has
   developed over southeast IA/northeast MO early this evening. This
   activity is evolving along a wind shift that extends from western
   IL/southeast IA/northwest MO. Latest diagnostic data suggests this
   convection is evolving within an air mass characterized by 3000 J/kg
   MLCAPE and adequately sheared for sustained rotating updrafts.
   Numerous reports of hail in excess of 2 inches have been received
   with this convection. With time this cluster should grow upscale and
   an MCS may ultimately evolve. Severe winds may become more common
   if/when the MCS matures. Subsequent movement is expected across
   western into central IL.
