   Areas affected...portions of northeastern Kansas into northwestern

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 480...

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 480 continues.

   SUMMARY...The severe threat continues across Tornado Watch 480.
   Severe wind and hail are the main threats, though a tornado remains

   DISCUSSION...The severe threat is generally confined to two main
   areas of convection. The first is in far eastern KS with a dominant
   supercell, and the other is with a supercell over extreme
   northwestern MO. Both of these storms persist amid an axis of strong
   buoyancy (3000+ J/kg MLCAPE) and 40+ kts of effective bulk shear. As
   such, supercell structures may be maintained for another hour or so,
   before upscale growth into storm clusters occurs, accompanied by a
   continued threat for severe gusts and large hail. A tornado also
   remains possible. However, the supercell over eastern KS appears to
   be HP and is potentially merging with nearby convection. Some of the
   latest HRRR runs depict the possibility of ongoing storms merging
   into a bow-echo structure. Should this occur, severe gusts will
   become the main threat.
