   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 250

   SUMMARY...The damaging wind and large hail threat will persist this

   DISCUSSION...A well formed line of storms which produced significant
   wind damage in parts of Midland has grown upscale as it continues to
   accelerate east. This will continue to pose a threat for 70 to 80
   mph wind gusts as it moves east. Ahead of this line, a strong
   supercell which has a history of 2.75 to 3 inch hail continues to
   move east. This supercell and the squall line are both moving toward
   better instability. Additional cells are forming between the squall
   line and the mature supercell, but it is still uncertain if any
   additional well established supercells can develop. Given the more
   favorable downstream environment and the synoptic support from the
   upper-level wave, expect the threat from the squall line and any
   leading supercells to continue for at least a few more hours.
