Weather Statement 08.14.2010 (3:30 pm CDT) In an extremely warm and unstable atmosphere thunderstorms have redeveloped along an outflow boundary from storms that were northwest of the region this morning. Due to the unstable nature of the atmosphere some of the storms have become severe to our west with a damaging wind threat. The storms should organize further into a broken squall line and continue to move east into the region by 6 pm. The main threat late this afternoon and evening is for scattered severe storms with gusty winds over 60 mph. Our region is also being monitored closely for a severe thunderstorm watch. STN will go into alert mode until the scattered severe threat diminishes this evening.
