   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 232

   SUMMARY...Additional storms may develop in central Texas near the
   warm front. Storms will likely be slightly elevated and pose
   primarily a risk of large hail. Storm coverage remains a bit

   DISCUSSION...Visible satellite shows cumulus deepening along the
   warm frontal boundary in central Texas. Though the warm front has
   been reinforced by earlier convective outflow, the front may
   preferentially lift north in this location given that the bulk of
   convection is now farther east. Additional storm development seems
   most likely to occur within southwestern portions of WW 232 this
   afternoon. However, forecast soundings do suggest there may be some
   subsidence behind the earlier convection which creates some
   uncertainty as to storm coverage. Should storms develop, large hail
   will be the primary hazard. Any increase in tornado risk will be
   conditional on the warm front lifting northward and sufficient
   low-level jet strength remaining (as the core is forecast to move
   east with time).
