   MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 0729
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0303 PM CDT TUE MAY 27 2014

   AREAS AFFECTED...NRN INTO CNTRL TX

   CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH POSSIBLE 

   VALID 272003Z - 272200Z

   PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...40 PERCENT

   SUMMARY...SCATTERED STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS CAPABLE OF HAIL AND
   GUSTY WINDS ARE LIKELY THIS AFTERNOON.

   DISCUSSION...STRONG HEATING BENEATH THE UPPER LOW IS LEADING TO
   ISOLATED STORM DEVELOPMENT NEAR A WEAK SURFACE TROUGH EXTENDING FROM
   SRN OK INTO CNTRL TX AT 20Z. SHEAR PROFILES ARE MOST FAVORABLE FOR
   SEVERE STORMS ACROSS CNTRL TX BENEATH THE MIDLEVEL JET...BUT
   INSTABILITY PROFILES FAVOR HAIL AREA-WIDE. VISIBLE IMAGERY ALSO
   SHOWS TCU ACROSS THE BWD-SEP AREA WHERE HEATING WILL PERSIST. WHILE
   THE WEAK LOW-LEVEL SHEAR SHOULD LIMIT ANY TORNADO THREAT...THE MOIST
   AIR MASS AND LONGER HODOGRAPHS ACROSS CNTRL TX COULD FAVOR
   SUPERCELLS AND A BRIEF TORNADO THREAT AS WELL.
