   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 76
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1205 PM CDT Fri Apr 9 2021

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Southern Arkansas
     Northwestern Louisiana
     Northeastern Texas

   * Effective this Friday afternoon and evening from 1205 PM until
     600 PM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2.5
       inches in diameter likely
     Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph likely
     A tornado or two possible

   SUMMARY...Thunderstorms now forming across northeastern Texas are
   expected to intensify this afternoon while spreading eastward across
   northwestern Louisiana and southern Arkansas.  Isolated very large
   hail will be possible with any more discrete supercells, while
   damaging winds will become more of a threat as storms grow upscale
   into clusters and line segments.  An isolated tornado cannot be
   ruled out with storms interacting with a surface front/outflow
   boundary across the watch area.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 60
   statute miles north and south of a line from 30 miles north
   northwest of Longview TX to 35 miles east northeast of Monticello
   AR. For a complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch
   outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU6).

   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 60 knots. A
   few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 550. Mean storm motion vector
   26025.
