   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0332
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0202 AM CDT FRI APR 17 2015

   AREAS AFFECTED...EASTERN TX PANHANDLE/WESTERN OK

   CONCERNING...SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 66...

   VALID 170702Z - 170830Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 66
   CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...ISOLATED MARGINALLY SEVERE HAIL AND LOCALLY STRONGER WINDS
   WILL CONTINUE OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS FROM THE FAR EASTERN TX
   PANHANDLE INTO WESTERN OK. SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 66 CONTINUES
   UNTIL 10Z.

   DISCUSSION...STORMS HAVE GENERALLY MERGED AND ORGANIZED IN A
   NORTHEAST-SOUTHWEST LINEAR ORIENTATION ALONG THE BORDER OF THE TX
   PANHANDLE/WESTERN OK EARLY IN THE OVERNIGHT. THIS MODAL TRANSITION
   AND RELATED UPDRAFT INTERFERENCE WILL TEND TO PRECLUDE LARGER HAIL
   MAGNITUDES...BUT AN INSTANCE OR TWO OF MARGINALLY SEVERE HAIL MAY
   REMAIN POSSIBLE. AS THE COMPOSITE CONVECTIVE LINE CONTINUES TO
   PROPAGATE EASTWARD WITH AID OF LOW-LEVEL EASTERLY INFLOW /ALBEIT
   INCREASINGLY ELEVATED AND STABLE/...EMBEDDED BOWING SEGMENTS MAY
   CONTINUE TO OCCUR...PARTICULARLY ACROSS WEST-CENTRAL OK WHERE THE
   CONVECTIVE LINE INTERCEPTS A RESIDUAL OUTFLOW BOUNDARY. WHILE
   LOCALLY STRONGER/POSSIBLY SEVERE WIND GUSTS COULD OCCUR INTO WESTERN
   OK...A CONTINUED COOLING OF THE BOUNDARY LAYER/INCREASING CINH WILL
   TEND TO MITIGATE SEVERE-CALIBER WIND GUST POTENTIAL.
