will also be possible with circulations embedded in the line, or
with cell interactions immediately in advance of the line.
The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 90

complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU1).
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

favorable for severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area.
Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening
weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible
warnings. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce
tornadoes.

... and they laughed at me for driving ... ;) There are far worse places to be stuck. (As long as you’re still on the island.)
It’s dry so far up here 13mi from Hobby as of 10:15am. Obviously that’s about to change.
It was great to see you guys!!

Good visiting with you too Brooks. Bill Read is driving back now through this mess since our flight was cancelled. Most everyone still here are on the Island experiencing some CG and very chilly gales with the cold air behind the MCV.
