The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 232, 233
SUMMARY...Thunderstorms will become more concentrated across the
Texas Panhandle by 03z.
DISCUSSION...Weak mid-level short-wave trough has migrated into
eastern NM early this evening. Scattered convection continues to
develop ahead of this feature across the southern High Plains,
extending as far south as Gains County TX, just north of MAF. 20kt
850mb flow currently extends across the western TX Panhandle but is
expected to gradually increase across the TX South Plains after
sunset. As a result, convection may continue to grow upscale as it
encounters increasingly moist environment, aided by LLJ. This
activity should spread toward the eastern TX Panhandle by 05z.
Wind/hail remain possible.
