The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 593, 595

SUMMARY…A strong to damaging wind threat may continue eastward out
of Severe Thunderstorm Watch 593 this evening. A new watch has been
issued into southern Minnesota and northern Iowa to address this

DISCUSSION…A well-organized but small bowing thunderstorm cluster
is progressing east-southeastward around 40 kt across far
southeastern SD as of 0330Z. Multiple strong to severe wind gusts of
55-65 mph have been measured by various observing sites across this
area over the past couple of hours, with KFSD reporting a gust to 47
mph at 0306Z. Although instability gradually decreases with eastward
extent into southern MN and north-central IA, a modestly enhanced
southwesterly low-level jet should aid continued storm organization
and intensity through the remainder of the evening and into the
early overnight hours. Given the ongoing linear convective mode,
strong to damaging winds will likely remain the primary threat.
Additional convective development along a cold front may occur into
parts of northeastern NE into northwestern and west-central IA.
