Areas affected…the Texas Panhandle into the northern South Plains
Concerning…Severe Thunderstorm Watch 681…
Valid 110352Z – 110545Z
The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 681
SUMMARY…Gusty winds will persist across much of the area over the
next couple hours, with locally severe gusts expected.
DISCUSSION…A large cluster of storms continues to develop
southward across the northern TX Panhandle with heavy rain and
strong outflow winds. Just to the southwest, additional activity has
redeveloped along a separate eastward-moving outflow boundary from
new BGD southwestward through AMA and to just northwest of LBB. The
remaining area of instability between these boundaries remains
favorable for supporting a continued severe threat as the air mass
gets overturned over the next several hours with colliding outflows.
The current south and eastward extent of watch 681 appears to
encompass the greatest risk area, as instability rapidly decreases
near the TX/OK border and to the south of the watch.
