   Areas affected...Portions of far eastern Montana and western North

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 473...

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 473

   SUMMARY...Severe risk is increasing across far eastern Montana into
   western ND, including the potential for large hail, damaging winds,
   and perhaps a tornado or two.

   DISCUSSION...Cumulus is deepening along an effective warm front
   extending east-southeastward from eastern MT into western ND, and
   isolated convective initiation is underway over Wibaux County MT.
   Regional VWP shows ample low-level hodograph curvature associated
   with backed surface winds beneath a plume of strong low-level
   warm-air advection. Additionally, diurnal heating along the boundary
   has yielded moderate surface-based instability. These factors, along
   with around 50 kt of effective shear, could support a couple
   semi-discrete supercells. Large hail and damaging winds are the main
   concern, though the favorable low-level hodograph curvature could
   support a tornado threat as well. 

   A watch will eventually be needed into western North Dakota for the
   above-mentioned severe risk and for severe storms tracking eastward
   out of eastern Montana.
