MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1862
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0141 AM CST SAT DEC 03 2016

AREAS AFFECTED...MUCH OF SOUTH-CENTRAL TX TOWARD THE UPPER TX COAST

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY

VALID 030741Z - 031145Z

PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...5 PERCENT

SUMMARY...A FEW STRONG STORMS EMBEDDED WITHIN A BROAD AREA OF
PRECIPITATION MAY BECOME CAPABLE OF MARGINALLY SEVERE HAIL THIS
MORNING.

DISCUSSION...STRONG WARM ADVECTION IS CURRENTLY UNDERWAY NORTH OF
THE SURFACE BOUNDARY WHICH CURRENTLY EXTENDS FROM NEAR CORPUS
CHRISTI NORTHEASTWARD TO JUST SOUTH OF GALVESTON. RADAR TRENDS SHOW
PERHAPS STRONGER LIFT BEING AUGMENTED BY LOW-LEVEL UPSLOPE FLOW
ACROSS THE FOOTHILLS OF THE SERRANIAS DEL BURROS WITH A FEW CORES
CAPABLE OF MAINLY SMALL HAIL EXTENDING TO JUST SOUTH OF THE SAN
ANTONIO AREA.

ALTHOUGH HEIGHT TENDENCIES ALOFT WILL REMAIN NEUTRAL...STRONG
DEEP-LAYER SHEAR ABOVE THE SURFACE STABLE LAYER WILL CONTINUE TO
SUPPORT ISOLATED STRONG CELLS ACROSS THE WARM ADVECTION ZONE AS IT
SLOWLY SHIFTS NORTHWARD THIS MORNING. MOST HAIL IS EXPECTED TO
REMAIN SUB-SEVERE DUE TO MARGINAL MUCAPE AT OR BELOW 1000 J/KG...BUT
HAIL IN THE 0.5" TO 1.0" DIAMETER RANGE CANNOT BE RULED OUT GIVEN
THE POTENTIAL FOR LONG-ACTING SHEAR ON A FEW OF THE MORE ROBUST
UPDRAFTS.
