   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 336

   SUMMARY...Large hail and damaging gusts remain possible with the
   thunderstorms ongoing over north Texas. Convective trends will be
   monitored to determine if a local extension in time of the ongoing
   watch is needed.

   DISCUSSION...Another round of thunderstorms has developed amid the
   low-level moisture convergence across Jack, Wise, and Denton
   Counties in North Texas. This development is occurring to the north
   of the outflow-dried air that extends from Tarrant and Dallas
   Counties southeastward into Erath County. The presence of this drier
   air just downstream of the storms and onset of nocturnal cooling
   suggest that the longevity of this activity may be limited. However,
   vertical shear remains strong, and there is some potential for the
   most organized storms to persist longer than the thermodynamic
   environment would suggest. Hail remains the primary threat, although
   a strong gust or two is possible as well. Severe Thunderstorm Watch
   336 is currently set to expire at 03Z, but convective trends will be
   monitored to determine if a local extension in time is necessary.
