The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 380
SUMMARY...Severe thunderstorms have remained relatively discrete
across Severe Thunderstorm Watch 380, posing a risk of large hail
and damaging wind gusts. This severe-weather threat will continue
over the next few hours.
DISCUSSION...Discrete supercells continue to develop off the higher
terrain of east-central Colorado and move east and southeast over
the High Plains. As these storms continue to move into better
low-level moisture, upscale growth is eventually expected over
south-west/central Kansas, especially as the low-level jet ramps up
after 02Z across western Oklahoma and the eastern Texas Panhandle.
If the storms evolve in that manner, trends will be monitored for
the possibility of a downstream watch.
