   PERSIST THROUGH 05Z. HOWEVER...THE RISK FOR TORNADOES HAS
   DIMINISHED...AND REMAINING CLUSTER OF STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS IS
   EXPECTED BEGIN A WEAKENING TREND AFTER 04Z.

   DISCUSSION...STORMS HAVE EVOLVED INTO A SMALL MCS FROM NEAR SAN
   ANGELO TO WEST OF STEPHENVILLE. MUCH OF THIS ACTIVITY HAS BECOME
   UNDERCUT BY THE SEWD ADVANCING CONVECTIVE OUTFLOW BOUNDARY WHICH IN
   ADDITION TO THE ONSET OF NOCTURNAL COOLING...HAVE MITIGATED THE
   TORNADO THREAT. STORMS MAY CONTINUE TO POSE A THREAT FOR DAMAGING
   WIND AND HAIL AS THEY DEVELOP SEWD NEXT HOUR OR TWO. HOWEVER...THE
   ATMOSPHERE FARTHER EAST ACROSS NCNTRL TX HAS BEEN STABILIZED BY
   EARLIER CONVECTIVE OUTFLOW...SUGGESTING THE STORMS SHOULD BEGIN TO
   UNDERGO A WEAKENING TREND BY 04-05Z.
