Areas affected...Southern Texas

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible

Valid 201241Z - 201415Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent

SUMMARY...At least isolated severe hail and wind are expected
through morning.

DISCUSSION...A small complex of thunderstorms continues to redevelop
along a slow moving front/outflow boundary west and northwest of the
San Antonio area. Several of these storms have contained hail, but
few have remained very long-lived as they have been progressively
undercut by outflow. Recently a small line segment has materialized,
suggesting a bit more outflow surge.

A very moist and unstable air mass is in place across the region,
and daytime heating will lead to further destabilization and also
increased storm propagation. Morning soundings also show relatively
long hodographs owing to good mid to upper level flow, however,
winds in the lower part of the troposphere are relatively weak,
though veering with height.

Daytime heating should allow for a gradual increase in storm
coverage and intensity as they progress east/southeastward across
south TX. Large hail and damaging winds will be possible, and a
watch may be needed later this morning as these storms evolve.
