   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 1
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   135 AM CST Mon Jan 2 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Central and East Texas

   * Effective this Monday morning from 235 AM until 900 AM CST.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible
     Isolated very large hail events to 2 inches in diameter possible
     A tornado or two possible

   SUMMARY...Thunderstorms will continue to increase in coverage and
   intensity through the early morning hours near an eastward-advancing
   front and ahead of an upper-level impulse. Bands of
   east/northeastward-moving strong to severe thunderstorms capable of
   hail and damaging wind are expected into a large part of central
   Texas including the I-35 corridor, reaching parts of east Texas
   toward daybreak, where an isolated tornado risk cannot be ruled out.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 95
   statute miles east and west of a line from 40 miles north northeast
   of Dallas TX to 30 miles west southwest of Austin TX. For a complete
   depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
   (WOUS64 KWNS WOU1).

   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.

   &&

   AVIATION...A few severe thunderstorms with hail surface and aloft to
   2 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 60 knots. A
   few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 500. Mean storm motion vector
   24035.
