   Mesoscale Discussion 0629
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0820 PM CDT Mon May 02 2022

   Areas affected...portions of south-central and eastern Oklahoma

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 171...

   Valid 030120Z - 030245Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 171 continues.

   SUMMARY...Risk for locally severe storms -- including the
   possibility of a tornado or two -- continues across existing
   portions of Tornado Watch #171.

   DISCUSSION...Latest radar loops shows a complex/broken line of
   storms extending from the Tulsa area southwestward to near Lawton. 
   Several complex structures are indicated with updrafts within this
   band, including a well-developed supercell moving across Seminole
   County in central Oklahoma that appears to have produced a tornado
   within the past half hour.

   Expect the convection -- and associated severe risk -- to continue
   over the next 1 to 2 hours, with some of the convection eventually
   expected to move into Tornado Watch 172 currently in effect from
   eastern Oklahoma into central Arkansas.  Meanwhile farther to the
   west, convection -- and at least some hail/damaging wind risk --
   will likely expand south of WW 171, possibly requiring some
   consideration for a new severe thunderstorm watch.
