   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   245 PM CDT Thu May 25 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     northeast Colorado
     northwestern Kansas
     southwestern Nebraska

   * Effective this Thursday afternoon and evening from 245 PM until
     1000 PM CDT.

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

   SUMMARY...An area of developing thunderstorms over northeastern
   Colorado appears likely to increase further in coverage and
   intensity while spreading east southeastward across the watch area
   through this evening.  A small upscale growing mesoscale convective
   system may eventually evolve, with increasing potential for severe
   wind gusts, particularly near the Interstate 70 corridor of
   northwestern Kansas.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 65
   statute miles north and south of a line from 40 miles northwest of
   Burlington CO to 40 miles east of Hill City KS. For a complete
   depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
   (WOUS64 KWNS WOU7).

   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 450. Mean storm motion vector
   27035.
