1058 PM CST Sun Jan 15 2017
Areas affected...South Central to North Central Texas
Concerning...Tornado Watch 8...
Valid 160458Z - 160600Z
The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 8 continues.
SUMMARY...Severe threat is decreasing across the region.
DISCUSSION...Long-lived, well-organized squall line continues its
eastward progression across WW007. Overall intensity of convection
has gradually decreased as this activity has progressed east of
I-35. Even so, gusty winds remain likely with the stronger-forced
portion of the squall line as it surges into northeast TX.
Low-level warm advection is maximized across this part of the state
and weak supercell structures can't be ruled out for the next hour
or so. Farther south into south central TX, large hail threat
appears to have decreased substantially across this region as
earlier supercells have lost their structures.
