   0645 PM CDT Sat May 28 2022

   Areas affected...Southern High Plains

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 282...

   Valid 282345Z - 290145Z

   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.
