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
