   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 95
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   335 PM CDT Tue Mar 28 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Southwest and south-central Oklahoma
     western North Texas

   * Effective this Tuesday afternoon and evening from 335 PM until
     1100 PM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     A few tornadoes and a couple intense tornadoes possible
     Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2.5
       inches in diameter possible
     Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible

   SUMMARY...As a warm front continues to spread northward and
   low-level moisture continues to increase, the potential for
   tornadoes should increase in addition to increasing risks for large
   hail and damaging winds across western North Texas into southwest
   and eventually south-central Oklahoma. These will be initially via
   semi-discrete supercells, with a more linear mode and widespread
   damaging wind risk later this evening.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 80 statute miles
   east and west of a line from 30 miles north northwest of Fort Sill
   OK to 35 miles west of Brownwood TX. For a complete depiction of the
   watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU5).

   PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

   REMEMBER...A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for
   tornadoes and 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.

   &&

   OTHER WATCH INFORMATION...CONTINUE...WW 93...WW 94...

   AVIATION...Tornadoes and a few severe thunderstorms with hail
   surface and aloft to 2.5 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind
   gusts to 60 knots. A few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 500. Mean
   storm motion vector 21030.
