The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 78
SUMMARY...An evolving line of thunderstorms will continue to move
east into the overnight. Although an isolated large hail or damaging
wind gust will be possible, the overall severe weather threat should
diminish with time.
DISCUSSION...A surface cold front will continue to accelerate east,
overtaking a dryline across the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles. The
result will be a brief increase in thunderstorm intensity and
coverage as low-level convergence increases, especially across the
Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles. However, with time, weakening
instability, increasing convective inhibition, and decreasing
surface moisture to the east should result in an overall weakening
thunderstorm trend. As such, the severe thunderstorm watch will be
allowed to expire.
