   Concerning...Tornado Watch 192...193...

   Valid 070425Z - 070600Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 192, 193 continues.

   SUMMARY...Tornadic supercells remain possible ahead of an expanding
   QLCS. The QLCS will remain capable of producing severe gusts and
   perhaps a few line-embedded tornadoes.

   DISCUSSION...Renewed storm development has been noted over the last
   hour across eastern OK, to the east and south of an expanding QLCS
   approaching southwest MO. Regional VWPs continue to depict a very
   favorable wind profile for tornadic supercells, within a moderate to
   strongly unstable environment. Any discrete supercells that can
   become established ahead of the line will pose a strong tornado
   threat into the early overnight hours. Otherwise, the QLCS will
   continue to move eastward into southwest MO with a threat for severe
   gusts. Line-embedded tornadoes also remain possible with the QLCS,
   especially where it overtakes any discrete cells that develop in
   advance of the line.
