   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 327
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   700 PM CDT Tue Jun 13 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Northwestern Iowa
     Central and southwestern Minnesota
     Extreme northeastern Nebraska
     Southeastern South Dakota

   * Effective this Tuesday night and Wednesday morning from 700 PM
     until 200 AM CDT.

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

   SUMMARY...In addition to an existing isolated supercell along the
   warm front in western Minnesota, a band of thunderstorms (with
   embedded supercells and potential QLCS circulations forming) will
   move northeastward into the watch area over the next few hours.  The
   tornado potential will be relatively maximized near that warm front,
   while damaging gusts and sporadic hail are expected throughout the
   convective regime.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 60 statute miles
   east and west of a line from 45 miles southeast of Yankton SD to 40
   miles northeast of Alexandria MN. For a complete depiction of the
   watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU7).

   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.
