   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 325
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   525 PM CDT Tue Jun 13 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Extreme western Iowa
     North-central Kansas
     Eastern Nebraska

   * Effective this Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning from 525
     PM until 100 AM CDT.

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

   SUMMARY...Multiple episodes of thunderstorms are expected to affect
   the watch area through this evening, moving rapidly northeastward
   through a favorably moist and unstable air mass.  Damaging winds and
   hail are likely, and even with likely clustered mode by that time, a
   tornado cannot be ruled out in the relatively moist air mass of
   eastern Nebraska.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 60
   statute miles either side of a line from 35 miles south of Russell
   KS to 30 miles northeast of Norfolk NE. For a complete depiction of
   the watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS
   WOU5).

   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.

   OTHER WATCH INFORMATION...CONTINUE...WW 323...WW 324...

   2 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 60 knots. A
