Areas affected...Parts of central/eastern Oklahoma into north
Concerning...Tornado Watch 95...
Valid 290325Z - 290430Z
The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 95 continues.
SUMMARY...A risk for strong surface gusts will continue with a
couple of lingering clusters of thunderstorms overspreading parts of
central/eastern Oklahoma and northern Texas (where a new severe
thunderstorm watch has been issued) through 08-10Z.
DISCUSSION...Bowing segment of evolving lead thunderstorm cluster
has been accompanied by at least occasional severe surface gusts,
mostly within/to the cool side of the deeper surface frontal zone
(where low-level shear is maximized) which arcs across southwestern
through northeastern Oklahoma. Forcing supporting this convection
may be in the process of weakening, but it is possible that
occasional strong/severe surface gusts may continue along/north of
the Interstate 44 corridor of northeastern Oklahoma through 04-06Z.
Otherwise, upstream, a squall line which has evolved along the
leading edge of mid-level cooling now overspreading the southern
high Plains likely will progress into/through the Interstate 35
corridor of southern Oklahoma through central Texas overnight,
accompanied by a continuing risk for strong/severe surface gusts.
