   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 510

   SUMMARY...Strong/severe convection will spread across southwest
   Kansas toward extreme northwest Oklahoma into the early-morning

   DISCUSSION...A slow-moving cluster of severe thunderstorms has
   overspread the western half of ww510. This activity is propagating
   southeast into a strengthening LLJ that extends across the eastern
   TX Panhandle into southwest KS. Latest radar trends suggest
   new/robust updrafts are evolving over southwest KS, and satellite
   imagery suggests convection is now deepening over Wichita County,
   about 40 mi northwest of Garden City. Leading edge of the complex is
   not moving particularly fast as there is a propensity for new
   updrafts along the northwest flank, where low-level warm advection
   may be maximized. With time this evolving MCS should progress into
   northwest OK, and the primary risk remains damaging winds.
