   Mesoscale Discussion 0581
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0938 PM CDT Tue May 07 2019

   Areas affected...the Eastern Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 144...

   Valid 080238Z - 080345Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 144 continues.

   SUMMARY...Tornado watch 144 will be allowed to expire at 03Z.

   DISCUSSION...The primary severe weather threat has moved east of
   tornado watch 144 in the short term. While some convection remains
   in the area, it seems to be mostly sub-severe. 01Z NEWS-e shows
   storms in the Texas Panhandle dissipating over the next hour with no
   additional development until after 06-07Z. Southeast flow remains
   across portions of the area with dewpoints in the low 60s. This
   would support additional storm development later tonight as the
   mid-level wave approaches. Tornado watch 144 will be allowed to
   expire at 03Z and convective trends will continue to be monitored
