    WW 34 SEVERE TSTM OK TX 192205Z - 200600Z

    URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
    Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 34
    NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
    405 PM CST Sun Feb 19 2017
    
    The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a
    
    * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
      southern Oklahoma
      west-central and western north Texas
    
    * Effective this Sunday afternoon from 405 PM until Midnight CST.
    
    * Primary threats include...
      Isolated very large hail events to 2 inches in diameter possible
      Isolated damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible
      A tornado or two possible
    
    SUMMARY...Thunderstorms should gradually intensify through early
    evening across west-central and western north Texas into southern
    OK. Damaging winds and severe hail will be possible, and wind
    profiles could support a brief tornado risk across parts of north
    Texas into southern Oklahoma.
    
    The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 60
    statute miles east and west of a line from 50 miles north northeast
    of Wichita Falls TX to 20 miles south southwest of Junction TX. For
    a complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
    update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU4).
    
    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
    
    REMEMBER...A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are
    favorable for severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area.
    Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening
    weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible
    warnings. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce
    tornadoes.
    
    &&
    
    AVIATION...A few severe thunderstorms with hail surface and aloft to
    2 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 60 knots. A
    few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 500. Mean storm motion vector
    19025.

    MD 0190 Image
    
    Mesoscale Discussion 0190
    NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
    0512 PM CST Sun Feb 19 2017
    
    Areas affected...Portions of central/western/northern OK
    
    Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 
    
    Valid 192312Z - 200145Z
    
    Probability of Watch Issuance...5 percent
    
    SUMMARY...Thunderstorms will continue to develop northward/eastward
    through the evening hours, and an isolated/marginal severe risk
    could evolve. Watch issuance will not be needed.
    
    DISCUSSION...Thunderstorms from parts of central/western TX into
    southwest OK will continue to develop northward/eastward during the
    next several hours. This will occur as midlevel height falls
    continue overspreading the region amidst modest 850-700-mb warm
    advection. Convection over southwest OK already is assuming somewhat
    disorganized/cluster-type convective modes. This is consistent with
    multiple subtle inflections in the hodograph representing deep
    meridional flow indicated by the FDR VAD wind profile. With around
    50-55 kt of deep shear, and modest strengthening of low-level shear
    profiles through the evening, a few briefly severe storms could
    occur. Locally damaging wind gusts will be the primary concern with
    this activity. Convective interference owing to increasingly
    numerous thunderstorm development, coupled with a relatively more
    dry/stable boundary layer compared to points south, should greatly
    minimize the severe risk.

    Valid 192000Z - 201200Z
    
    ...THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FROM SOUTH TEXAS
    THROUGH SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA...
    
    ...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS OVER A LARGE
    PART OF THE SOUTHERN PLAINS...
    
    ...SUMMARY...
    Severe thunderstorms remain possible across a portion of the
    Southern Plains this afternoon and evening, developing farther
    southward across the Texas Hill Country and south Texas this evening
    and tonight.  Large hail and sporadic wind damage are possible, and
    a tornado or two could also occur.
    
    ...Southern Plains...
    
    Only minor adjustments have been made to previous outlook. The
    atmosphere continues to destabilize as modifying gulf air advects
    northward into the southern plains beneath a capping inversion.
    Latest objective analysis shows mlcape from 2000 J/kg over south TX
    to around 500 J/kg over southern OK. Deeper forcing for ascent
    attendant to vorticity maxima rotating through the eastern and
    southeast periphery of the upper trough will gradually erode the
    cap. Thunderstorms should develop from north central TX into
    southern and central and OK this afternoon as well as farther south
    across portions of south TX later this afternoon and evening. 
    Strong effective bulk shear may promote a few supercells capable of
    large hail with initial discrete storms. Low-level shear is
    sufficient for a few low-level mesocyclones and a couple tornadoes
    in vicinity of warm front from north central TX into southern OK.
    With time, tendency will be for most storms to evolve into a linear
    MCS with isolated damaging wind becoming the primary threat during
    the evening and overnight. Ref swomcd 188 for more information.
    
    ..Dial.. 02/19/2017
    
    .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 1030 AM CST Sun Feb 19 2017/
    
    ...Synopsis...
    A southern-stream upper low presently over the southern Rockies at
    late morning will gradually progress generally eastward over the
    next 24 hours, essentially evolving into split streams with one
    portion approaching the central High Plains and the other
    overspreading northern Mexico.
    
    ...Southern Plains...
    Ahead of the previously described evolving upper system, near 60F
    surface dewpoints continue to develop northward, as far north as the
    Red River vicinity as of 16Z, while middle/upper 60s F surface
    dewpoints are semi-prevalent along the TX coast and Hill Country.
    This amplified/meridional large-scale pattern will continue to yield
    ample higher-level cloud cover, which casts some uncertainty on
    pockets of stronger heating/destabilization coincident with
    otherwise moistening boundary layer. 
    
    Regardless, indications are that the potential for surface-based
    thunderstorms should initially be focused late this afternoon/early
    evening across parts of western North Texas into
    southwest/south-central OK. Presuming some cloud breaks/modest
    destabilization, wind profiles/low-level hodographs would support
    initial supercells potentially including a hail/tornado risk,
    although with time, flow weakness around 700 mb is suggestive of a
    messy and more linear mode by early into mid-evening.
    
    Farther south, with the arrival of large-scale forcing for ascent,
    bands of scattered storms seems likely to increase late this evening
    into the overnight across the Hill Country and Rio Grande vicinity.
    Some hail will initially be possible, but damaging winds should be
    the primary risk given forecast wind profiles.
