...THERE IS AN ENHANCED RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FROM EXTREME
EAST-CENTRAL SD INTO FAR NORTHERN IA...SOUTHERN MN AND CENTRAL WI...

CORRECTED FOR THUNDER LINE IN THE NORTHEAST

...SUMMARY...
Severe thunderstorms are expected Tuesday from the middle Missouri
and upper Mississippi Valleys into the Great Lakes. Damaging wind
gusts, large hail and a couple of tornado are possible, with the
greatest threat expected from southern Minnesota into central
Wisconsin.

...Synopsis...

An active day is expected on Tuesday as several northern-stream
shortwave troughs/impulses migrate from the northern Plains to the
lower Great Lakes atop a southern stream upper ridge centered over
the southern/central High Plains. 

...SD/NE into Lower MI...

Rich boundary layer moisture will continue to stream into the mid-MO
Valley and Great Lakes vicinity on strong southerly low level winds.
Surface dewpoints are forecast to range from the mid/upper 60s to
perhaps near 70 F along and ahead of a cold front from western upper
MI into central MN and southeast SD midday Tuesday. Strong heating
is forecast across the region, with high temperatures generally in
the upper 80s to low 90s. A plume of steep midlevel lapse rates (7-8
C/km) will overspread the region, supporting MLCAPE values from
2000-4000 J/kg. Meanwhile, a band of 35-45 kt bulk effective shear
will support organized convection. 

Supercells may initially develop near a triple point over southeast
SD east/northeast along the surface boundary across southern MN.
Thermodynamic and shear parameters will support storms initially
capable of very large hail (some potentially bigger than 2 inches in
diameter), and damaging gusts. Where low level SRH is enhanced near
the surface low and along the surface boundary, a couple of
tornadoes could occur with any discrete convection. Convection is
expected to grow upscale within a few hours of initiation as frontal
forcing increases, and as thunderstorm outflows/cold pool production
becomes more supportive of bowing segments across parts of northern
IA, far southern MN and into WI/MI during the evening and overnight
hours.

...WY into the central Plains...

A dryline will extend southwestward from the surface low over
southeast SD through central NE and into northwest KS. Isolated
supercells are expected to develop during the afternoon in this very
unstable but weaker shear environment. a deeply-mixed boundary layer
and steep low level lapse rates will favor strong, locally damaging
gusts and possibly some large hail. Further west, thunderstorms are
expected to develop over higher terrain in WY. As these higher-based
storms move eastward off of the higher terrain, a few intense cells
could support locally strong gusts and hail through the evening
hours. 

...Lower Great Lakes Vicinity...

Morning showers and cloud cover are expected across parts of
northeast OH into western NY/PA on the back side of an exiting
shortwave impulse.  This cloud cover should clear the area by
afternoon, as rich moisture advects northeastward across the region.
Convection is expected to develop across Ontario along the eastern
extension of the surface cold front and spread south/southeast into
northeast OH and western PA/NY during the evening and overnight
hours. Strong wind gusts and small hail are the main threats
expected with this activity.
