   Mesoscale Discussion 0715
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0822 PM CDT Tue May 10 2022

   Areas affected...Parts of the TX South Plains...TX
   Panhandle...Western OK

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 198...199...200...201...

   Valid 110122Z - 110245Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 198, 199,
   200, 201 continues.

   SUMMARY...Swaths of severe wind will remain possible through late

   DISCUSSION...After numerous cell mergers earlier this evening, an
   eastward surging thunderstorm cluster has evolved across the central
   TX Panhandle. An outflow boundary from earlier convection is draped
   near the I-40 corridor downstream of this cluster, with strong
   instability remaining to the south of the boundary. As this cluster
   moves eastward along the boundary, a swath of strong/severe gusts
   will be possible into the eastern TX Panhandle/western OK. 

   Further southwest, a northeastward-surging cluster has recently
   evolved out of slow-moving convection across extreme southeast NM.
   This cluster will move along a southwestward extension of the
   primary outflow boundary toward the Lubbock area, with a locally
   enhanced severe wind risk.  

   Increasing MLCINH may eventually lead to a weakening trend late this
   evening with the ongoing convection, though some threat of severe
   wind along the outflows will likely persist even after convection
   begins to weaken.
