   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 442

   SUMMARY...The strongest convection will continue southeastward this
   evening. Additional development may occur. Large hail and isolated
   severe winds are the main hazards.

   DISCUSSION...A few widely scattered supercells are moving slowly
   southeastward into parts of central Montana. This motion is
   generally expected to continue into the evening, as this is where
   the moisture axis is situated. However, some early convection has
   left some outflow (cooler/modestly drier) that is evident in surface
   observations. It is unclear how this will impact the ongoing
   strong/severe storms as they encounter this mesoscale environment.
   Additional storms may develop within the terrain or perhaps along
   the southern edge of the outflow. It also appears possible that a
   storm or two could move southeastward out of Alberta. In general,
   large hail (conditionally up to 2 inches with a mature supercell)
   and isolated strong/severe gusts are the main threats into the
