   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 27
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   500 PM EDT Thu Mar 14 2019

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Extreme southeastern Indiana
     North central Kentucky
     Southwestern into north central Ohio
     Lake Erie

   * Effective this Thursday afternoon and evening from 500 PM until

   SUMMARY...A broken band of storms, with some embedded supercells,
   may persist for a few more hours before diurnal cooling contributes
   to storm weakening.  The storm environment will favor supercells
   capable of producing damaging winds and isolated large hail, along
   with a tornado or two.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 55
   statute miles east and west of a line from 45 miles north northeast
   of Mansfield OH to 35 miles south of Louisville KY. 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.
