The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 282
SUMMARY...Damaging winds appear to be the main threat with
convection this evening, although some hail could also occur.
DISCUSSION...Scattered high-based convection that developed along
the dryline as surface temperatures soared above 100F has begun to
spread downstream a bit. This activity is progressing into a bit
more moist environment where temperatures remain hot but dew points
are in the lower 60s. If these updrafts are opportunistic enough to
ingest this higher-quality moisture/buoyancy then damaging wind
threat could increase over the next few hours, especially from
southeast of LTS to west of SPS.
