   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 283
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1120 AM CDT Thu Jul 19 2018

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Western and Central Missouri

   * Effective this Thursday morning and evening from 1120 AM until
     900 PM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Widespread damaging winds likely with isolated significant gusts
       to 75 mph possible
     Scattered large hail likely with isolated very large hail events
       to 2.5 inches in diameter possible
     A tornado or two possible

   SUMMARY...An increasingly organized convective cluster across
   central Missouri should continue to intensify and gradually
   accelerate east/southeastward through the afternoon. Meanwhile,
   additional storm development should occur on its western flank
   and/or move into Missouri out of Kansas later this
   afternoon/evening. Corridors of damaging winds/large can be expected
   and a tornado cannot be entirely ruled out.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 75
   statute miles east and west of a line from 50 miles north northeast
   of Knob Noster MO to 50 miles south southeast of Springfield MO. For
   a complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
   update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU3).

   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
   2.5 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 65 knots. A
   few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 600. Mean storm motion vector
   31030.
