   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0756 PM CDT Wed May 01 2024

   Areas affected...Texas South Plains...Southeast Texas
   Panhandle...Far Southwest OK

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 171...

   Valid 020056Z - 020230Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 171 continues.

   SUMMARY...Threat for strong gusts, include some gusts over 75 mph,
   appears to be increasing across the southeast Texas Panhandle and
   far southwest Oklahoma.

   DISCUSSION...Several severe wind gusts have been measured in Lubbock
   vicinity over the past 30 minutes as a more
   linear/forward-propagating cluster moved quickly northward. This
   cluster is beginning to interact with the supercell over Crosby and
   Floyd Counties, with perhaps some transition to a more organized
   linear convective system underway. Some interaction between this
   developing line and the supercell cluster in Briscoe and Hall
   Counties is then anticipated, likely leading to an increased
   potential for damaging gusts as well as additional forward
   propagation. If this scenario is realized, the threat for strong
   gusts, including some gusts over 75 mph, will increasing.
   Additionally, this would likely bring storms into southwest OK
   within the next two hours.
