Areas affected...Southeast OK...Far North TX...Northwest AR

Concerning...Tornado Watch 111...

Valid 010241Z - 010415Z

The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 111 continues.

SUMMARY...Storms moving out of north Texas into southeast Oklahoma
will continue to pose a tornado threat into the late evening, in
addition to some hail/wind risk. Further north, a threat for
damaging wind and perhaps a brief tornado or two continues along the
cold front.

DISCUSSION...Rotation has recently increased with semi-discrete
cells moving out of north TX into southeast OK. Moderate instability
and strong low-level shear/helicity will support a tornado threat
with these cells as they move northeastward, with a strong tornado
or two remaining possible with any sustained supercells. Further
north, convection has consolidated into a QLCS along the cold front,
and this trend is likely to continue as the low-level jet remains
strong in advance of this line. Damaging wind will likely be the
primary threat as the QLCS moves eastward, though a brief tornado or
two will also be possible given the strong low-level shear in place.

With WW 111 scheduled to expire at 04Z, and the potential for the
QLCS to move into a larger portion of northwest AR in the next 1-2
hours, new watch issuance is possible within the next hour or so.
