LIVE CODE RED briefing on severe weather / isolated tornado threat today between HOUSTON and AUSTIN

Live code red briefing on the severe weather threat this afternoon west of Houston, including the potential for isolated tornadoes. A potent vorticity maximum surges into East TX through this afternoon, exciting a modest 30-40 knot SSW-ly low-level jet from Corpus Christi through Shreveport. The best overlap between surface-based instability and low-level shear looks to be west of Houston and east of Austin, TX by 1/2 pm through 5/6 pm, before the instability axis is pinched well SW of Houston. LIVE updates expected this afternoon as the severe weather threat ramps up along southern edge of mesoscale convective complex.
