    The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 93

    SUMMARY...A localized severe hail threat may continue with existing
    storms for a couple more hours. A localized extension of Severe
    Thunderstorm Watch #093 may be needed if storms maintain their

    DISCUSSION...Two discrete supercells have initiated along the
    trailing portion of a near-stationary cold front across Sutton and
    Kimble Counties in southwest Texas. Latest MRMS mosaic radar data
    shows 50+ dBZ cores reaching 35 kft, with MESH values nearing 2.0
    inch diameters. Despite the intensity of the ongoing storms,
    convective inhibition is gradually increasing in the midst of
    nocturnal cooling. As such, these storms are not expected to be
    particularly long-lived. Still, storms may continue for another hour
    or so while producing severe hail given the presence of 9+ C/km
    700-500 mb lapse rates (per 00Z DRT observed sounding) and resultant
    1000-1500 J/kg MUCAPE (when modified to match the latest KJCT METAR observations, representative of the storm-relative environment). A
    2.0 inch stone also cannot be completely ruled out. A localized
    extension of WW 093 could be necessary should the storms maintain
    intensity through 03Z.
