    Areas affected...Northwest Texas into the Pecos/Rio Grande Valley

    Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 216...

    Valid 272324Z - 280130Z

    The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 216

    SUMMARY...Widely scattered strong to severe storms, including a few
    supercells, will continue to develop through mid to late evening,
    posing a risk for large hail and strong surface gusts before

    DISCUSSION...Large-scale forcing for ascent appears mostly weak, and
    likely to remain so into the evening hours, but weakening
    inhibition, due to a combination of insolation and mid-level cold
    advection, has allowed for the initiation of scattered thunderstorms
    near the dryline.=20=20

    Along and east of the dryline, a corridor of deep boundary-layer
    mixing with sufficient moisture for large CAPE in excess of 3000
    J/kg has developed. This has occurred in the presence of strong
    deep-layer shear, beneath 30-50+ kt southwesterly flow in the
    500-300 mb layer. Low-level wind fields are weak, however, with
    little appreciable strengthening forecast, except perhaps in a small
    area near the Del Rio, TX vicinity.=20=20

    Given this environment, a period of continued thunderstorm
    intensification appears probable into the 01-03Z time frame, before
    the onset of boundary-layer cooling contributes to waning
    instability. This may include the evolution of additional isolated
    supercells, with strongest storms posing a risk for large hail, and
    eventually strong surface gusts before diminishing.
