    Mesoscale Discussion 1530
    NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
    1050 PM CDT Sun Aug 15 2021

    Areas affected...south-central AZ

    Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely=20

    Valid 160350Z - 160445Z

    Probability of Watch Issuance...5 percent

    SUMMARY...The risk for severe gusts may continue as a thunderstorm
    cluster moves to the west-southwest from eastern AZ and approaches
    the greater Phoenix metro over the next few hours.

    DISCUSSION...Radar imagery from KPHX shows a cluster of intense
    thunderstorms in a relatively optimized balance for renewed
    thunderstorm development on surging outflow. The 00z Phoenix raob
    showed relatively steep low to mid-level lapse rates. Surface
    cooling has been tempered this evening due to rich low-level
    moisture (14 g/kg lowest 100 mb mean mixing ratio)---limiting the
    lessening of low-level lapse rates. Furthermore, the 25-kt flow in
    the 3-6 km layer per the raob will support storm movement to the
    west-southwest and perhaps augment wind potential with evaporative
    cooling. As a result, it is plausible severe gusts move into the
    eastern part of the Phoenix metro during the next 1-2 hours as this
    activity continues west-southwestward before eventually weakening.
