   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 518...

   Valid 050005Z - 050200Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 518

   SUMMARY...Severe risk -- mainly in the form of gusty winds --
   continues locally within WW 518.

   DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop shows a somewhat broken line of
   storms along the advancing cold front, with gradual decreases in
   intensity noted over the past hour.  With surface analyses showing a
   gradually cooling boundary layer, and afternoon special RAOBs
   showing that cooling to have a very deleterious effect on available
   CAPE, expect the decreasing trend in updraft intensity to continue. 
   While a locally damaging gust will be possible with a few stronger
   elements within the convective band over the next 1-2 hours, risk
   should gradually diminish -- and appreciable risk is not expected to
   extend east of the current WW.
