   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 519
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   335 PM CST Mon Dec 4 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Northwestern Arkansas
     Eastern Oklahoma

   * Effective this Monday afternoon and evening from 335 PM until
     900 PM CST.

   * Primary threats include...
     Isolated damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible
     Isolated large hail events to 1 inch in diameter possible
     A tornado or two possible

   SUMMARY...Thunderstorms will increase in coverage/intensity this
   afternoon into this evening as a surface cold front overtakes a
   remnant dryline.  The storm environment will favor some potential
   for supercells the first few hours after initiation, and then growth
   into a line along the cold front.  Damaging winds will be the main
   concern, but isolated large hail and/or a brief tornado will also be
   possible.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 55
   statute miles east and west of a line from 5 miles northeast of
   Monett MO to 40 miles southeast of Mcalester OK. For a complete
   depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
   (WOUS64 KWNS WOU9).

   PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

   REMEMBER...A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are
   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.
