   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 434...

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 434

   SUMMARY...A mix of isolated severe hail and wind should transition
   to predominately wind over the next few hours into early evening
   from north-central Kansas into western Iowa. A tornado or two will
   also remain possible.

   DISCUSSION...A thin, but increasingly extensive line of
   thunderstorms is ongoing along a southeast-moving cold front from
   northwest IA through north-central KS. Several cores within this
   developing line have had MRMS MESH values reaching into the 1-1.75
   inch diameter range. Bulk of this activity thus far appears to be
   forming on the immediate cool side of the front. As further cold
   pool strengthening occurs in the next couple hours, some
   acceleration of clusters eastward should occur along the KS-NE
   border into western IA. This should foster an uptick in wind gust
   intensity to around 55-70 mph before 00Z.
