The atmosphere is suppose to destabilize again by tonight. The HRRR shows CAPE values over 3500+ J/kg as the squall line moves through.

My TWC app is reporting a dew point of 77 in Rosharon. So no doubt it’s extremely muggy and uncomfortable around your area. It’s looking like around 4am should be go time for you according to the HRRR.

A little concerning that the sun is coming out again, that combined with strong inflow from the gulf would explain why models show CAPE values increasing so much over night.

Just by looking at the HRRR and whatever model Travis Herzog just showed, it looks like the squall line starts to fall apart south of I-10. I sure hope not.

Of course it does...

Looking at the forecast this is the only shot for another whole week.

I think your area will have a better shot at rain than where I’m at in west-central Wharton County. Looks like all of the models have me right on the western edge of the rain so it’s possible here I might not get anything.

The squall line is really starting to bow out , if the trend continues the line may be stronger down here than it was in Dallas/Ft Worth earlier.

Mesoscale Discussion 0500
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0156 AM CDT Wed Apr 29 2020

Areas affected...East-central Texas...Louisiana

Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 154...155...

Valid 290656Z - 290900Z

The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 154, 155
continues.

SUMMARY...A severe threat is likely to continue for several more
hours as a line of storms moves southeastward across WW 154 and WW
155. New weather watch issuance may be needed to the southeast of
the current watches.

DISCUSSION...A well-developed squall line is evident on radar from
north-central Texas arching east-northeastward across northwest
Arkansas into northwest Mississippi. The line of storms is located
on the northern edge of a moist airmass. Surface dewpoints are
highest in east-central Texas where the RAP is showing a moderately
unstable airmass. MLCAPE values are estimated to be in the 3000 to
4000 J/kg range across much of east-central Texas. For this reason,
the potential for wind damage and large hail will be greatest there
over the next few hours. Wind damage and hail will also be possible
eastward across northern Louisiana where low-level flow is stronger.
The severe threat should move southeastward to the edges of WW 154
and WW 155 by 10Z. If the intensity of the line can be sustained as
it approaches the edge of the weather watches, then a new weather
watch could need to be issued across parts of southeast Texas and
central Louisiana late tonight.

SUMMARY...A well-organized squall line will continue a general
south-southeastward progression across the region through the early
morning hours, with some additional and more isolated storms also
across south-central/southeast Texas. Damaging winds will be the
most common hazard, but severe hail is possible particularly across
the Texas portion of the Watch (south-central Texas).

statute miles north and south of a line from 60 miles northwest of
Victoria TX to 80 miles east of Lafayette LA. For a complete

weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible
warnings. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally do produce
tornadoes.
