   Mesoscale Discussion 0601
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1258 AM CDT Thu May 02 2024

   Areas affected...portions of central into southeast Texas

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 173...

   Valid 020558Z - 020730Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 173

   SUMMARY...Damaging-wind potential may persist beyond the 07z
   expiration time of Severe Thunderstorm Watch 173. A replacement
   watch may be needed.

   DISCUSSION...A small but strong bowing segment from Llano into
   Gillespie Counties in the central TX continues to be well-organized
   per regional radar. Meanwhile, further to the east, a cluster of
   strong to severe thunderstorms is ongoing north of Houston. Both of
   these areas of convection are persisting along a west-to-east
   oriented instability gradient, and within a 40-50 kt southerly
   low-level jet. This should aid in continued storm organization and
   at least some risk for damaging gusts the next few hours. With
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch 173 set to expire at 07z, a replacement
   watch may be needed if current trends persist over the next 30
   minutes or so.
