   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 31

   SUMMARY...Hail continues to be the primary risk with storms this

   DISCUSSION...Scattered thunderstorms, a few supercells, persist
   across ww31. This activity continues to evolve along the eastern
   plume of steeper lapse rates that extend across the southern High
   Plains of west TX into northern OK. While large-scale forcing is not
   particularly noteworthy, low-level convergence is more than adequate
   for renewed development east of the dryline, extending northeast
   along the synoptic front over OK. Hail has been the most common
   severe threat with this activity, and radar data suggests the most
   robust updrafts are generating hail in excess of 1 inch. Over the
   last hour or so, convection has gradually increased along the
   synoptic front from north of CDS to near PNC. This corridor may
   become more concentrated into the mid-evening hours as the boundary
   advances slowly southeast.
