The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 620

SUMMARY…Some severe risk continues across portions of South
Dakota, in and near WW 620. With storms — and possibly some severe
risk — likely to spread southeastward into northern Nebraska with
time, some need for a new WW south of the existing watch could

DISCUSSION…Latest radar loop shows a band of storms — with
embedded stronger cells — crossing eastern North Dakota and central
South Dakota, through remaining portions of WW 619. These storms
are gradually moving into a less unstable environment with eastward
extent, and should gradually diminish. Meanwhile, a fast-moving
cluster of cells continues moving across southwest South Dakota, and
is likely producing strong wind gusts and possibly hail.

As these storms continue moving southeastward and encounter a more
unstable airmass over northern parts of the Nebraska Panhandle, some
expansion/intensification of this convection is expected.
Progression of these storms south of WW 620 into the next hour or so
may require new WW issuance across parts of Nebraska.
