The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 505

SUMMARY...Line of strong to severe storms with primary hazards of
wind and hail should accelerate east across parts of north TX.

DISCUSSION...Trailing portion of an extensive QLCS extends to the TX
Big Country. Parts of this line have begun to surge/accelerate east
over the Low Rolling Plains and the primary hazard should be strong
to severe wind gusts as the line persists just south of the Red
River. The far southwest portion of the line should pose a risk for
isolated severe hail owing to a more semi-discrete mode. While the
00Z FWD sounding sampled mean mixing ratios of only around 11 g/kg,
a plume of richer boundary-layer moisture characterized by near 70 F
surface dew points is being advected north towards the Metroplex and
north-central TX. This might foster a maintenance of QLCS intensity
during the early morning, compensating for gradual nocturnal
