    Areas affected...Southern High Plains
    Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 232...233...
    Valid 170037Z - 170230Z
    The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 232, 233
    SUMMARY...Thunderstorms will become more concentrated across the
    Texas Panhandle by 03z.
    DISCUSSION...Weak mid-level short-wave trough has migrated into
    eastern NM early this evening. Scattered convection continues to
    develop ahead of this feature across the southern High Plains,
    extending as far south as Gains County TX, just north of MAF. 20kt
    850mb flow currently extends across the western TX Panhandle but is
    expected to gradually increase across the TX South Plains after
    sunset. As a result, convection may continue to grow upscale as it
    encounters increasingly moist environment, aided by LLJ. This
    activity should spread toward the eastern TX Panhandle by 05z.
    Wind/hail remain possible.
