   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 95
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   230 PM CDT Tue Apr 23 2019

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Southwest into western north Texas

   * Effective this Tuesday afternoon and evening from 230 PM until
     1100 PM CDT.

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

   SUMMARY...Thunderstorm development is expected along a slow-moving
   front the next few hours from southwest Texas into western north
   Texas, and over the high terrain west of Del Rio.  The storm
   environment along and south of the watch will favor splitting
   supercells capable of producing isolated very large hail and
   damaging gusts.  Storm clusters should persist into the early
   overnight hours along the front, with a gradual transition to
   locally heavy rainfall as the main concern.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 65
   statute miles north and south of a line from 45 miles north
   northwest of Dryden TX to 25 miles east of Mineral Wells TX. For a
   complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
   update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU5).

   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 500. Mean storm motion vector
   26020.
