   Areas affected...Northwest TX

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 282...

   Valid 290230Z - 290330Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 282

   SUMMARY...Severe threat is waning across the southern High Plains.

   DISCUSSION...Dryline convection has struggled to move appreciably
   east before weakening, this despite ample 850mb inflow and higher
   boundary-layer moisture immediately downstream.  One lingering
   robust updraft continues west of Munday, likely due to more
   south-southwesterly flow where surface temperatures remain in the
   90s. However, boundary-layer cooling should lead to weakening of
   this storm over the next 1-2 hours and aside from locally gusty
   winds overall severe threat should be waning.
