   Areas affected...Portions of Northwest into Central Texas

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 132...

   Valid 240142Z - 240245Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 132

   SUMMARY...Severe gusts and isolated large hail remain possible for
   the next hour or two in Northwest/Central Texas.

   DISCUSSION...A locally upscale-grown cluster (with embedded
   supercell structures) has evolved over Northwest TX this evening,
   and will continue tracking southeastward during the next 1-2 hours.
   Given the slightly larger cold pool that has developed on the
   eastern periphery of a steep low-level lapse-rate plume, severe
   gusts up to 65 mph are the main concern. Isolated large hail is also
   possible in the deeper embedded cores. This storm cluster is moving
   into increasing MLCINH owing to the onset of nocturnal
   boundary-layer cooling, and the severe risk should generally weaken
   with time. Convective trends are being monitored for a local spatial
   extension of Severe Thunderstorm Watch 132, though this is not
   currently expected for reasons above.
