The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 617

SUMMARY…Severe risk is expected to increase across portions of the
WW area in the next couple of hours.

DISCUSSION…While storms which developed earlier across southeast
Colorado have diminished, new convective development is ongoing over
southwestern Kansas, with storms moving south-southeastward. The
convection is occurring in response to a strengthening low-level
jet, and as such, it appears possible that some of this convection
will affect portions of WW 617 in the next couple of hours. The
main risk with this convection, assuming the expected upscale
growth, would be locally damaging wind gusts.
