   Areas affected...Lower/middle Texas Coast and deep south Texas

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch likely 

   Valid 192357Z - 200100Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...80 percent

   SUMMARY...Tornado risk to increase through the evening as outer
   bands of Tropical Storm Alberto move inland across the lower/middle
   Texas Coast.

   DISCUSSION...Recent radar imagery has shown supercells developing in
   a band of convection just off the middle Texas Coast northeast
   Corpus Christi. At least transient rotation and supercell structures
   are expected to increase as low-level shear strengthens through the
   evening. Forecast soundings show greater low-level shear and
   curvature in hodographs after 00z across much of the area across
   south Texas and inland to the Rio Grande Valley. This will lead to
   an increase in embedded supercells within bands of deeper convection
   and potential risk for tornadoes.  Isolated supercells also may
   develop over the Gulf and move ashore south of the primary band(s). 
   A watch is likely to be needed in the next hour.
