   Areas affected...Portions of the Lower Trans-Pecos and Edwards

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 345...

   Valid 282315Z - 290045Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 345

   SUMMARY...A severe threat of large hail and severe wind gusts will
   continue across portions of the Lower Trans-Pecos and Edwards

   DISCUSSION...A right moving supercell, along with another deepening
   updraft on its western flank, will continue to progress eastward
   into Crockett and Val Verde Counties over the next hour. The
   downstream convective environment will remain favorable for updraft
   organization, with deep effective shear around 45-55 kt, and steep
   mid level lapse rates contributing to around 3500 J/kg of MLCAPE.
   Large hail around 1.5 to 2.5" will remain the main severe threat
   with these thunderstorms. However, severe wind gust potential may
   increase through the evening hours as a deeper cold pool develops
   with merging updrafts.
