   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 375
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   255 PM CDT Wed Jun 28 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Iowa
     Northwest Illinois
     Northern Missouri
     Southeast Nebraska
     Southwest Wisconsin

   * Effective this Wednesday afternoon and evening from 255 PM
     until 1000 PM CDT.

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

   SUMMARY...In the wake of early-day storms, strong to severe
   thunderstorm development should continue to occur with a steadily
   moistening and destabilizing air mass. While large hail and damaging
   winds should be the most common hazards, relatively strong low-level
   shear and the influence of subtle residual boundaries could yield a
   few tornadoes through the mid/late afternoon hours into this
   evening.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 105 statute miles
   east and west of a line from 40 miles northeast of Waterloo IA to 40
   miles southwest of Lamoni IA. For a complete depiction of the watch
   see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU5).

   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.

   &&

   AVIATION...Tornadoes and 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 500. Mean
   storm motion vector 27030.
