   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 326
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   555 PM CDT Tue Jun 13 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Northwestern Minnesota
     Eastern North Dakota

   * Effective this Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning from 555
     PM until 100 AM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2.5
       inches in diameter possible
     Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible
     A tornado or two possible

   SUMMARY...Severe-thunderstorm potential is increasing across the
   watch area, north of a surface warm front and northeast of a surface
   low, as the air mass at and especially above the surface continues
   to destabilize.  The main risks will be damaging wind and large hail
   from activity emerging out of South Dakota, with an arching band or
   complex of storms likely to evolve and sweep northeastward.  A
   tornado or two cannot be ruled out near the southern end of the
   watch, closer to that warm front.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 90
   statute miles east and west of a line from 75 miles south southeast
   of Jamestown ND to 15 miles west northwest of Warroad MN. For a
   complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
   update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU6).

   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...WW 325...

   AVIATION...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 550. Mean storm motion vector
   23035.
