Mesoscale Discussion 0164

0206 AM CST Sat Mar 09 2019

Areas affected...Portions of the Texas Panhandle

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

Valid 090806Z - 091000Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...5 percent

SUMMARY...A shallow convective line, with a history of severe wind
gusts, is expected to maintain intensity for a couple more hours,
before moving into a region of increasing low-level inhibition.

DISCUSSION...Current KAMA NEXRAD radar indicates a relatively
low-topped squall line propagating east across the central Texas
Panhandle at approximately 50 knots. Multiple ASOS/west Texas
Mesonet stations have reported gusts over 50 knots for at least the
past hour, amidst a thermodynamic environment characterized by
250-500 J/kg MUCAPE and minimal inhibition in the lowest 100 mb (per
07Z RAP forecast soundings). As such, at least a few more damaging
wind gusts are expected across the remainder of the discussion area,
until the convective line approaches the Oklahoma border, where
increasing low-level stability will inhibit the downward mixing of
stronger flow aloft to the surface.
