   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 182
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   945 PM CDT Sat Jun 16 2018

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     North-central and northeast Minnesota
     Far southeast North Dakota
     Northwest Wisconsin
     Lake Superior

   * Effective this Saturday night and Sunday morning from 945 PM
     until 500 AM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2
       inches in diameter likely
     Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible
     A tornado or two possible

   SUMMARY...Storms will continue to increase in coverage and perhaps
   intensity through late evening as warm advection increases to the
   north of a surface boundary. Ample source-region moisture and
   instability will support at least sporadic potential for severe hail
   and wind into the overnight.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 140
   statute miles east and west of a line from 65 miles northwest of
   Duluth MN to 45 miles east southeast of Saint Cloud MN. For a
   complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
   update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU2).

   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 180...WW 181...
