   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 99
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   350 PM CDT Wed Mar 29 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Eastern Kansas
     Western and south-central Missouri

   * Effective this Wednesday afternoon and evening from 350 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
       inches in diameter possible
     Isolated damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible

   SUMMARY...The air mass continues to gradually destabilize to the
   east of a surface low and along/south of a northward-spreading warm
   front across eastern Kansas and western Missouri. Severe hail may be
   the most common risk initially. With time, a tornado risk may
   increase particularly across parts of western/southern Missouri
   where damaging winds will also be a concern.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 75 statute miles
   east and west of a line from 10 miles east northeast of Olathe KS to
   50 miles south southeast of Springfield MO. For a complete depiction
   of the watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS
   WOU9).

   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 98...
