   ...SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED OVER PARTS OF THE CENTRAL AND
   SOUTHERN PLAINS THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT...
   
   THE NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER IN NORMAN OK IS FORECASTING THE
   DEVELOPMENT OF A FEW STRONG...LONG-TRACK TORNADOES...LARGE HAIL AND
   DAMAGING WINDS OVER PARTS OF THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS THIS
   AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.
   
   THE AREAS MOST LIKELY TO EXPERIENCE THIS ACTIVITY INCLUDE
   
          EXTREME NORTHWEST ARKANSAS
          CENTRAL AND EASTERN KANSAS
          PARTS OF WESTERN MISSOURI
          CENTRAL AND EASTERN OKLAHOMA
   
   ELSEWHERE...SEVERE STORMS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE FROM SOUTHERN NEBRASKA
   TO THE MIDDLE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY AND SOUTHWARD TO PARTS OF TEXAS.
   
   A STRONG STORM SYSTEM TRACKING NORTHEASTWARD ACROSS KANSAS AND
   OKLAHOMA THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING...REACHING THE MIDDLE
   MISSISSIPPI VALLEY LATER TONIGHT...WILL SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF
   SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON INTO TONIGHT ACROSS PARTS OF
   CENTRAL KANSAS AND OKLAHOMA TO WESTERN MISSOURI AND NORTHWEST
   ARKANSAS.  STRONG SOUTHERLY LOW LEVEL WINDS WILL SUPPORT A CONTINUED
   NORTHWARD TRANSPORT OF MOISTURE THROUGH THE SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL
   PLAINS INTO THE OZARKS TO MIDDLE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY.  THIS MOISTURE
   COMBINED WITH SURFACE HEATING ACROSS WESTERN OKLAHOMA INTO SOUTHWEST
   KANSAS TODAY WILL CONTRIBUTE TO A VERY UNSTABLE AIR MASS BY LATE
   AFTERNOON.  THE ARRIVAL OF STRONG SOUTHWESTERLY MIDDLE LEVEL WINDS
   ATOP THE SOUTHERLY WINDS NEAR THE SURFACE WILL RESULT IN FAVORABLE
   CONDITIONS FOR FAST MOVING SEVERE STORMS PRODUCING A FEW STRONG...
   LONG-TRACK TORNADOES...LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS BEGINNING
   ACROSS CENTRAL PARTS OF KANSAS AND OKLAHOMA IN THE LATE AFTERNOON. 
   ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN FAVORABLE FOR THESE STRONG TO
   SEVERE STORMS TO SPREAD NEWD INTO PARTS OF MISSOURI AND NORTHWEST
   ARKANSAS TONIGHT.
   
   STATE AND LOCAL EMERGENCY MANAGERS ARE MONITORING THIS POTENTIALLY
   VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. THOSE IN THE THREATENED AREA ARE URGED TO
   REVIEW SEVERE WEATHER SAFETY RULES AND TO LISTEN TO
   RADIO...TELEVISION...AND NOAA WEATHER RADIO FOR POSSIBLE
