The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 38
SUMMARY...Gusty winds and some hail threat will spread across
northern portions of ww38 over the next few hours.
DISCUSSION...Extended line of strong storms is propagating south at
roughly 15kt...currently extending from west-central portions of AL,
west-southwest across northern portions of ww38 into central TX.
This squall line appears to have slowed its forward motion a bit
over the last few hours but an expanding precip shield should
encourage this MCS to continue its southward motion. Gusty winds are
the primary threat; although, MRMS data suggests the most robust
updrafts may still produce some hail.
