   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 435...

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 435

   SUMMARY...The threat for large hail, damaging winds, and some
   landspout tornadoes continues for the watch area.

   DISCUSSION...The severe thunderstorm threat continues across
   portions of west-central Kansas as a cold front progresses slowly
   southeastward. Additional storm development is expected further
   south and west along the cold front this afternoon. 

   The primary threat is for large hail and damaging wind gusts, as
   initially superceullar storms begin to grow upscale into linear
   segments. Additionally, SPC Mesoanalysis indicates ongoing
   supercells in west-central Kansas are located in a region of large
   surface vorticity along the frontal boundary. With relatively slow
   boundary and storm motions supportive of long residence times,
   enhanced stretching is favorable for landspout tornado activity.
