   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 376
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   410 PM CDT Wed Jun 28 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Eastern Minnesota
     Western Wisconsin

   * Effective this Wednesday afternoon and evening from 410 PM
     until 1000 PM CDT.

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

   SUMMARY...Thunderstorms are likely to gradually intensify through
   late afternoon and early evening as some additional air mass
   destabilization occurs. While the air mass will not be overly
   unstable, sufficient low-level/deep-layer shear, particularly near a
   warm front, will support some tornado risk aside from severe hail
   and damaging winds.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 55 statute miles
   east and west of a line from 70 miles north northwest of Eau Claire
   WI to 10 miles east of La Crosse WI. For a complete depiction of the
   watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU6).

   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.

   &&

   OTHER WATCH INFORMATION...CONTINUE...WW 375...

   AVIATION...Tornadoes and 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 500. Mean
   storm motion vector 27025.
