   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 499

   SUMMARY...A focused corridor of strong to severe wind gusts (50-70
   mph) may accompany a rapidly propagating bowing MCS across southern

   DISCUSSION...An MCS has recently organized across southern KS over
   the past couple of hours. This MCS has recently shown some bowing
   structure, with rapid propagation speeds potentially exceeding 50
   mph, and several estimated and measured severe gusts reported.
   Preceding this bow-echo MCS is a deep, mixed boundary layer,
   characterized by 8-9 C/km 0-3 km lapse rates per 22Z mesoanalysis.
   This favorable boundary layer may foster efficient evaporative
   cooling to support a focused corridor (through the axis of steepest
   low-level lapse rates) of strong to severe gusts within the 50-70
   mph range for at least a few more hours.
