   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0529 PM CDT Wed Jun 26 2024

   Areas affected...Southeast Colorado into northern Texas
   Panhandle..Oklahoma Panhandle...far southwest Kansas

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible 

   Valid 262229Z - 270000Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent

   SUMMARY...Though coverage may remain isolated, the strongest storms
   will be capable of large hail and severe winds. Trends will be
   monitored for a possible watch late this afternoon.

   DISCUSSION...Moist upslope flow into the Raton Mesa and nearby
   vicinity has led to a cluster storms within parts of the
   Texas/Oklahoma Panhandle as well as more isolated development in
   southeastern Colorado. Modest westerly mid-level winds within the
   upper-level ridge atop easterly/southeasterly surface winds have
   promoted modest effective shear of around 30-35 kts. Given weak
   forcing, storm organization my remain relatively brief/sporadic and
   coverage of severe storms may remain isolated. The strongest storms
   will be capable of large hail and severe winds. It is possible that
   a more organized wind threat could materialize if storms can
   cluster. A northward moving boundary in southeast Colorado could
   provide a focus for this. A watch is possible, but with coverage
   being uncertain, convective trends will continue to be monitored
   late this afternoon.
