The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 582

SUMMARY…Isolated strong to severe storms with large hail and
downburst winds will persist through about 02Z, followed by a
diminishing trend.

DISCUSSION…New storms have recently developed near the
CO/northwest KS border along what appears to be the merger between a
northwest-southeast oriented boundary and a southwest advancing
outflow boundary. It remains possible that other isolated storms may
develop farther northwest over the higher terrain and spread
southeast. Vertical wind profiles with 40-50 kt effective bulk shear
support potential for some supercell structures. Activity is
developing within an environment characterized by weak forcing aloft
suggesting storms are mostly diurnally driven and should remain
isolated. Convective inhibition will increase substantially with
onset of nocturnal cooling, and storms are expected to begin a
gradual weakening trend by 02Z.
