    The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 189

    SUMMARY...Sporadic damaging winds remain possible in the near term,
    but a gradual weakening trend appears likely heading through the
    remainder of the evening hours.

    DISCUSSION...An organized line of storms continue to propagate east/northeastward across western AR and the Arklatex region. A
    handful of wind damage reports have been noted along the leading
    edge of the QLCS, and recent GOES IR imagery shows a few strong
    updrafts persist within the line, suggesting damaging winds remain
    likely in the near term (roughly over the next hour or so). However,
    composite reflectivity and lightning trends over the past hour hint
    at a gradual weakening trend as the line of storms moves further
    into AR where deep-layer shear is less favorable for organized
    convection. Sufficient instability with minimal inhibition across
    central and southern AR should allow for additional convective
    development as this line continues east, and this may pose an
    isolated wind/hail threat with any stronger updrafts. But the lack
    of more robust deep-layer flow will likely limit the potential for a
    more organized severe threat. Trends will be monitored, but a
    downstream watch is currently not anticipated.
