Areas affected...deep south Texas

Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 297...

Valid 290702Z - 290900Z

The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 297
continues.

SUMMARY...A bowing band of storms continues moving east across deep
south Texas (within WW 297) where local severe risk continues.

DISCUSSION...Latest radar loop continues to show a bowing cluster of
storms that remains well-organized from a reflectivity perspective,
but which continues moving east at a rather modest 30 kt.  Recent
wind measurements from affected observation sites have been below
severe levels (around 40 mph), while MRMS MESH continues to suggest
only marginally severe hail at best.  With weak mid-level flow
across this area likely contributing to a somewhat limited severe
risk, the well-organized nature of the convective cluster and
favorable thermodynamic environment ahead of the storms (mixed-layer
CAPE in excess of 3000 J/kg across the area) suggest that local risk
for severe weather will persist until storms move offshore over the
next 2-3 hours.
