   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 498

   SUMMARY...Locally damaging winds will accompany convection as it
   propagates across northeast MO into western IL.

   DISCUSSION...Weak MCV has evolved within remnant convection that
   tracked across eastern KS into northwest MO, just east of Kansas
   City over Ray County. This feature may be partly responsible for
   organized squall line that currently extends from near Sedalia to
   Randolph County. Larger MCS appears to be evolving along the nose of
   LLJ which is forecast to translate downstream into central IL later
   tonight. This activity is currently propagating through the main
   instability axis which should continue to support robust updrafts,
   at least into extreme western IL before weaker buoyancy is
   encountered. Locally damaging winds are the primary concern with
   this cluster of storms.
