   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 419

   SUMMARY...Some threat for severe gusts will persist into early

   DISCUSSION...A small thunderstorm cluster with a history of
   producing severe gusts is moving across northeast KS. A shortwave
   trough moving across central KS is likely aiding this storm cluster,
   which will likely persist in some form through early evening. While
   there has been some tendency for outflow to outpace the leading edge
   of convection, some reintensification of this cluster will be
   possible as it moves into a downstream environment characterized by
   richer low-level moisture and MLCAPE in excess of 2500 J/kg. Given
   the current outflow-dominant cluster mode, severe gusts will likely
   continue to be the primary threat in the short term, though the
   downstream environment would also favor some potential for hail and
   possibly a tornado, if any more cellular development can occur
   along/ahead of the ongoing storms.
