   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 472

   SUMMARY...A band of strong/severe storms continues moving eastward
   across southern New England, where locally damaging wind gusts
   remain possible over the next couple of hours.

   DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop shows a north-south band of
   strong/severe storms moving eastward at around 40 kt in the vicinity
   of the Connecticut/Rhode Island border.  The storms have a history
   of producing strong/severe wind gusts, including a 67 kt gust at
   Hartford/Bradley Airport (KBDL) in the past hour.  

   While instability is gradually diminishing nocturnally, and capping
   correspondingly increasing, storms will likely maintain intensity
   given the degree of organization.  With that said, hints exist in
   KBOX radar data that outflow is beginning to outpace the main band
   of storms.  This -- and the ongoing nocturnal boundary-layer cooling
   -- suggests that storms are becoming slightly elevated with time. 
   Still, locally severe/damaging gusts remain possible over the next 1
   to 2 hours.
