   Areas affected...the Four Corners Area and eastern UT vicinity

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 441...

   Valid 212011Z - 212145Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 441

   SUMMARY...An isolated severe hail and wind threat should continue
   for the next several hours as single cells and a few supercells
   spread slowly east-northeastward, mainly affecting the eastern Utah
   to Four Corners Area.

   DISCUSSION...Scattered to numerous thunderstorms are ongoing across
   the eastern Great Basin to southern/central Rockies region. The most
   intense storm has been a persistent slow-moving supercell along the
   AZ/UT border area near Page. Significant severe hail from 2-2.5
   inches in diameter and even a brief tornado will be possible as this
   storm moves along the Lake Powell to Glen Canyon vicinity over the
   next couple hours. A few additional supercells should develop over
   eastern UT into the Four Corners vicinity amid MLCAPE of 1000-1500
   J/kg and effective bulk shear of 40-50 kts. Convection across
   west-central CO in the Grand Junction vicinity may tend to struggle
   owing to the limit period of heating between morning convection and
   renewed development this afternoon.
