   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 493

   SUMMARY...An isolated severe wind/hail threat should shift across a
   part of east-central Montana before weakening in western North
   Dakota overnight.

   DISCUSSION...Strengthening of the low-level jet earlier this evening
   (the eastern periphery of which is sampled by the Bismarck VWP),
   yielded an increase in thunderstorm development along remnant
   outflow from decayed afternoon convection. Thus far, severe wind
   gusts up to 53 kts have been measured at Miles City, with
   golfball-sized hail reported in Treasure County, MT. Recently, the
   more intense updrafts have accelerated northeastward in east-central
   MT. This trend is expected to continue as MLCIN becomes more
   pronounced south of the I-94 corridor. The orientation of this
   evolution will result in storms encountering an increasingly more
   stable airmass in western ND. This should yield a diminishing trend
   to storms as they spread farther northeastward overnight. Until that
   time, isolated large hail and severe wind gusts will remain
   possible, mainly through about 06Z.
