    Areas affected...Southern Louisiana and far southeast Texas

    Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 166...

    Valid 120133Z - 120300Z

    The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 166

    SUMMARY...An isolated severe weather threat will continue overnight.
    Isolated damaging wind will be the primary threat.

    DISCUSSION...Widespread storms have developed across southern
    Louisiana along an instability gradient with a very moist low-level
    airmass being transported northward into the region. The 00Z KLCH
    RAOB sampled this rich low-level environment well with a mean mixing
    ratio of 16.5 g/kg. This low-level moisture provides a broad
    reservoir of unstable air with MUCAPE in excess of 3000 J/kg per 00Z
    KLCH RAOB. This moist airmass has limited the ability for cold pool
    development and thus the line of storms entering western Louisiana
    has struggled to accelerate eastward and produce much wind damage.
    The expansive storm development has limited discrete development and
    the potential for severe hail, especially given the tropical airmass
    present in the region. Therefore, expect widespread storms to
    continue overnight, but expect the severe threat to be muted with
    water-loaded downdrafts the primary mechanism for isolated damaging
    wind gusts. Therefore, no downstream watch is anticipated at this
