   Areas affected...portions of central into eastern Texas

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 224...

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 224

   SUMMARY...The severe threat continues across Severe Thunderstorm
   Watch 224. Severe wind and hail remains the primary concern,
   particularly with the more dominant supercell updrafts.

   DISCUSSION...Two supercell thunderstorms with a history of very
   large hail and severe wind gusts continue to move southward over
   central/south-central TX, while a cluster of severe storms across
   eastern TX may be growing upscale into an MCS. These storms continue
   to progress amid a highly unstable and sheared environment. Though
   nocturnal cooling will contribute to a gradual decline of the severe
   threat, the degree of remaining instability suggests that severe
   wind and hail should accompany the ongoing storms for at least a few
   more hours. Should discrete supercell modes prevail, large hail will
   remain the main threat, with severe gusts becoming the dominant
   threat with any clusters that grow upscale.
