SUMMARY...LOCALIZED MCV WITH EMBEDDED SUPERCELLS WILL POSE A
NEAR-TERM RISK FOR LARGE HAIL AND SEVERE WIND GUSTS. THIS ACTIVITY
SHOULD DIMINISH AFTER SUNSET AMIDST PROGRESSIVELY WEAKER INSTABILITY
WITH ERN EXTENT.

DISCUSSION...AN MCV CENTERED OVER SRN REEVES COUNTY WITH EMBEDDED
SUPERCELLS ARCING INTO NERN PRESIDIO COUNTY HAVE HAD A HISTORY OF
RADAR-ALGORITHM DERIVED LARGE HAIL ALONG WITH STORM-RELATIVE INBOUND
VELOCITIES UP TO AROUND 90 KT. ALTHOUGH DOWNSTREAM SURFACE DEW
POINTS HAVE MIXED INTO THE MID 40S AT KFST...THESE PROBABLE SEVERE
STORMS SHOULD MOVE ACROSS THIS AREA WITHIN THE HOUR.
