    • MD 0230 CONCERNING SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH 31... FOR CENTRAL/SOUTHERN OKLAHOMA Mesoscale Discussion 0230 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0810 PM CDT Sat Mar 23 2019 Areas affected...Central/Southern Oklahoma Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 31... Valid 240110Z - 240315Z The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 31 continues. SUMMARY...Severe threat continues for WW31 with large hail, strong wind gusts, and perhaps a brief/weak tornado possible. DISCUSSION...Multiple severe thunderstorms are moving east/northeast across central/southern Oklahoma. There remains a corridor east of the dryline to approximately a line stretching from Tulsa to the Red River where storms will remain surface-based. Effective bulk shear of 40-50 knots and 250-800 J/kg of MLCAPE are within this warm sector according to mesoanalysis. While the severe threat will begin to diminish later this evening, established severe storms could still produce large hail even as storms become elevated. While strong wind gusts and a brief/weak tornado are possible, large hail continues to be the primary severe threat during the next couple of hours. A watch extension is unlikely at this time given the marginal severe environment east of the watch and beyond expiration time. ..Nauslar/Thompson.. 03/24/2019 ...Please see www.spc.noaa.gov for graphic product...
