    Areas affected...portions of east/southeast Texas into western

    Concerning...Severe potential...Tornado Watch likely=20

    Valid 231743Z - 231945Z

    Probability of Watch Issuance...95 percent

    SUMMARY...Severe thunderstorms capable of producing tornadoes,
    damaging gusts and hail are expected this afternoon and evening
    across parts of eastern Texas into western Louisiana.

    DISCUSSION...A strong low-level warm advection regime continues
    across east Texas into western LA early this afternoon. A warm front
    is draped northwest-to-southeast from central TX into southwest LA
    per 17z surface analysis. This front should continue to gradually
    lift northward over the next several hours. Dewpoints will increase
    to the mid 60s to low 70s F near and south of the front,
    contributing to increasing low-level instability. Forecasts
    currently increase 0-3 km CAPE to around 100-150 J/kg after 20z in a
    corridor near the warm front, with mixing ratios around 15-16 g/kg. Additionally, the front will further augment already favorable
    low-level wind profiles suitable for tornadoes. As a
    south/southwesterly low-level jet increases to 50+ kt toward 00z,
    some upscale growth into one or more bowing segments is possible.
    This could increase damaging wind potential. Even as storm mode
    evolves, low-level hodographs will remain favorable for mesovortex
    formation and a continuation of a tornado threat with eastward
    extent into western LA.
