   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0718
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0804 PM CDT MON MAY 26 2014

   AREAS AFFECTED...WRN TX

   CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 188...

   VALID 270104Z - 270230Z

   THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 188 CONTINUES.

   SUMMARY...PRIMARY SEVERE THREAT ACROSS REMAINING PORTION OF TORNADO
   WATCH 188 IS EXPECTED TO PERSIST ACROSS THAT PORTION OF WRN TX NEAR
   AND EAST OF MIDLAND TO SOUTH OF SAN ANGELO THROUGH 03Z. DEVELOPMENT
   FARTHER SOUTH ACROSS SWRN TX REMAINS UNCERTAIN BUT APPEARS
   INCREASINGLY UNLIKELY.

   DISCUSSION...CLUSTER OF SUPERCELLS PERSIST ACROSS WRN TX EAST OF
   MIDLAND AND NORTH OF SAN ANGELO. STORMS ARE TRAINING ESEWD ALONG AND
   JUST NORTH OF A SLOWLY SWD MOVING OUTFLOW BOUNDARY. THE ATMOSPHERE
   IN THIS REGION REMAINS MODERATELY UNSTABLE WITH 40-50 KT EFFECTIVE
   SHEAR. THIS CLUSTER OF STORMS WILL LIKELY CONTINUE DEVELOPING SEWD
   NEXT COUPLE HOURS...POSING A THREAT FOR LARGE HAIL...A COUPLE OF
   TORNADOES AND DAMAGING WIND. THE ERN DELIMITER OF THE SEVERE THREAT
   APPEARS TO BE A N-S ORIENTED OUTFLOW BOUNDARY LOCATED NEAR THE ERN
   EDGE OF WW 188...SO ANY STORMS MOVING EAST OF THE CURRENT WW SHOULD
   WEAKEN AS THEY CROSS INTO A MORE STABLE REGIME. SEVERE THREAT SHOULD
   BEGIN TO WANE AFTER 03Z AS THE SFC LAYER STABILIZES AND CONVECTIVE
   INHIBITION INCREASES.
