   Areas affected...Western Oklahoma

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 364...

   Valid 160211Z - 160315Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 364

   SUMMARY...Significant damaging wind threat emerging in western

   DISCUSSION...Storms that had developed earlier across the Texas
   Panhandle have grown upscale into a mesoscale convective system/bow
   echo that is now entering the western tier of counties in Oklahoma.
   This system has a history of producing significant damaging wind
   gusts of 80+ mph. Forecast soundings support the maintenance in the
   short-term, with steep low- and mid-level lapse rates, rich
   boundary-layer moisture (70F surface dew point temperatures), ample
   instability (4000+ J/kg MLCAPE), and a developing low-level jet.
   Outflow along the leading edge of the system has thus far kept pace
   with the convection, suggesting the threat for significant damaging
   wind gusts will continue for the next couple of hours across
   southwest Oklahoma and affect central Oklahoma by 04-05 UTC.
