   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 133
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   930 PM CDT Tue May 29 2018

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Parts of western, central, and northern Oklahoma

   * Effective this Tuesday night and Wednesday morning from 930 PM
     until 400 AM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered large hail likely with isolated very large hail events
       to 2 inches in diameter possible
     Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible

   SUMMARY...Scattered severe storms are ongoing in clusters across
   northwest and west central Oklahoma.  These storms will likely
   persist and spread eastward through the overnight hours with an
   attendant threat for large hail, especially with embedded
   supercells.  There is still some potential for the storms in
   northwest Oklahoma to grow into a somewhat larger cluster, which
   would favor an increase in the threat for damaging winds.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 80
   statute miles east and west of a line from 25 miles northwest of
   Ponca City OK to 35 miles west southwest of Chickasha OK. 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.

   &&

   OTHER WATCH INFORMATION...CONTINUE...WW 132...

   AVIATION...A few severe thunderstorms with hail surface and aloft to
   2 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 60 knots. A
   few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 500. Mean storm motion vector
   28030.
