Areas affected...Portions of eastern New Mexico...west Texas...and
the Texas/Oklahoma Panhandle
Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 353...
Valid 140001Z - 140100Z
The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 353
SUMMARY...Severe weather threat continues for the next several hours
across Severe Thunderstorm Watch #353. In addition, the area
downstream of WW #353 across portions of the Texas Panhandle is
being monitored for a possible Severe Thunderstorm Watch issuance.
DISCUSSION...Radar/satellite/lightning data continue to indicate
periodic strengthening of convection across WW #353. The environment
across the area is characterized by 1000-2000 J/kg of MLCAPE and
40-50 knots of effective bulk shear, which will continue to support
at least isolated instances of large hail into the evening. Latest
trends suggest some strengthening of convection across portions of
northeastern New Mexico, and the OK/Texas Panhandles -- including a
thunderstorm which recently intensified near the New Mexico/Oklahoma
state line. If this activity can congeal into a larger complex, as
some high-resolution guidance suggests, then a Severe Thunderstorm
Watch may be needed over portions of the Texas Panhandle this
evening for the potential of damaging wind gusts.
