   Mesoscale Discussion 0058
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1058 PM CST Sun Jan 15 2017

   Areas affected...South Central to North Central Texas

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 8...

   Valid 160458Z - 160600Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 8 continues.

   SUMMARY...Severe threat is decreasing across the region.

   DISCUSSION...Long-lived, well-organized squall line continues its
   eastward progression across WW007.  Overall intensity of convection
   has gradually decreased as this activity has progressed east of
   I-35.  Even so, gusty winds remain likely with the stronger-forced
   portion of the squall line as it surges into northeast TX. 
   Low-level warm advection is maximized across this part of the state
   and weak supercell structures can't be ruled out for the next hour
   or so.  Farther south into south central TX, large hail threat
   appears to have decreased substantially across this region as
   earlier supercells have lost their structures.
