   Areas affected...eastern New Mexico into the western Texas Panhandle

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

   Valid 080938Z - 081115Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

   SUMMARY...Several supercells have formed and may pose a large hail
   threat for a few hours as they move east-southeast early this

   DISCUSSION...Elevated supercells have developed across eastern New
   Mexico as a mid-level trough approaches from the northwest. These
   storms have developed in a region with modest, but sufficient
   instability (1000 J/kg MUCAPE) and moderate shear (35-40 knots) per
   SPC mesoanalysis. Expect this environment to shift slowly east which
   may allow for some stronger storms to persist into the western Texas
   Panhandle near daybreak. MRMS MESH suggests 2+ inch hail is possible
   in some of the larger cores. This seems significantly overestimated,
   but some 1 to 1.5 inch hail is possible. 

   This threat is expected to be too isolated/short lived for a severe
   thunderstorm watch.
