The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 218
SUMMARY...Severe risk continues locally, within WW 218.
DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop shows that the storm which crossed
Coryell County -- likely producing large hail -- has weakened some
and moved east-southeastward into McLennan County. Meanwhile,
fairly widespread -- but currently sub-severe -- storms continue
across portions of the watch. With a favorably unstable airmass -- particularly across southern and eastern portions of the watch which
have been spared of convective contamination -- still in place, risk
for large hail as well as locally stronger/damaging wind gusts
remains evident. Convection appears to be increasing just west of
the watch, and as it evolves/spreads eastward, southwestern portions
of the WW may be a focus for greater short-term risk.
