   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 387
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   235 AM CDT Sat Jul 1 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     West-central Texas

   * Effective this Saturday morning from 235 AM until 1000 AM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered damaging winds and isolated significant gusts to 75
       mph possible
     Isolated very large hail events to 2 inches in diameter possible

   SUMMARY...A long-lived small storm complex that moved out of New
   Mexico, and produced an 80-mph gust at the Levelland West Texas
   Mesonet site, may merge with another, newer cluster of severe storms
   to its east.  This process can result in an MCS capable of
   additional severe wind as the activity rides east-southeastward,
   along and north of an outflow boundary.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 45
   statute miles either side of a line from 40 miles south southwest of
   Lubbock TX to 40 miles east southeast of Abilene TX. For a complete
   depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
   (WOUS64 KWNS WOU7).

   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.

   &&

   AVIATION...A few severe thunderstorms with hail surface and aloft to
   2 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 65 knots. A
   few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 550. Mean storm motion vector
   29040.
