   Mesoscale Discussion 0795
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1105 PM CDT Fri May 19 2017

   Areas affected...central Texas

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 251...

   Valid 200405Z - 200600Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 251 continues.

   SUMMARY...Local severe/brief tornado risk continues with storms
   ongoing across southern parts of WW 251 at this time.  Additional
   storm development possible overnight.

   DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop shows a band of strong/severe storms
   over southern portions of watch 251 at this time, with risk for
   primarily large hail indicated presently.

   Latest CAM runs continue to suggest possible storm development near
   the cold front, now moving across northwestern portions of the
   watch.  Much of this activity may reside to the cool side of the
   front however, which would suggest hail would be the primary risk
   with any new storm development.  Meanwhile, possibility for locally
   damaging winds or an isolated/brief tornado may persist for a couple
   more hours with aforementioned activity in the southern portion of
   the ww.
