   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 75
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   525 AM CDT Wed Mar 30 2022

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Arkansas
     Northern Louisiana
     Southern Missouri
     Extreme southeastern Oklahoma
     Northeast and extreme east Texas

   * Effective this Wednesday morning and afternoon from 525 AM
     until 100 PM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     A few tornadoes likely with a couple intense tornadoes possible
     Scattered damaging winds likely with isolated significant gusts
       to 80 mph possible
     Isolated large hail events to 1 inch in diameter possible

   SUMMARY...A broken band of thunderstorms is expected to reorient
   more north-south and gradually intensify through the morning and
   into midday, as it crosses the watch area.  The southern end of the
   activity also may expand and become severe as it crosses from Texas
   into Louisiana and shifts eastward.  Strengthening deep-layer wind
   fields and increasing moisture will favor a threat for tornadoes and
   severe gusts from this activity.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 80 statute miles
   east and west of a line from 45 miles south of Shreveport LA to 25
   miles northwest of West Plains MO. 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.
