MD 1468 CONCERNING SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH LIKELY FOR MUCH OF SOUTHEAST CO INTO SOUTHWEST KS AND SOUTHWARD INTO THE PANHANDLES
Mesoscale Discussion 1468 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0350 PM CDT Thu Aug 10 2017 Areas affected...Much of southeast CO into southwest KS and southward into the Panhandles Concerning...Severe potential...Watch likely Valid 102050Z - 102245Z Probability of Watch Issuance...80 percent SUMMARY...Storms will increase across the Front Range and near a stationary front, with cells possibly merging into an MCS. Damaging wind and hail are likely and a watch is expected in the next 1-1.5 hrs. DISCUSSION...Air mass recovery continues across southwest KS and southeast CO with strong heating. An east-west oriented boundary currently extends from east central CO into west central KS, with northeasterly upslope flow behind the front and into CO. Cells near the CO Front Range and toward the Sangre de Cristo mountains should gradually become more numerous as convective inhibition is reduced over the lower terrain, with northwesterly winds aloft helping to push development southeastward. A substantial area of theta-e and instability is already in place over southeast CO and northeast NM, and this will support upscale growth. ..Jewell/Goss.. 08/10/2017 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...
