   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 200
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1230 PM MDT Mon May 24 2021

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Eastern Colorado
     Western Kansas
     Southwest Nebraska

   * Effective this Monday afternoon and evening from 1230 PM until
     800 PM MDT.

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

   SUMMARY...An outflow boundary will continue to modify and move
   slowly northward across the region, serving as a focus for severe
   thunderstorm development aside from a front that extends
   southwest-northeast across the region. At least isolated locally
   intense supercells are possible. This includes potential for large
   hail along with the possibility of a few tornadoes, particularly
   given the moist environment and influences of the low-level
   boundaries across the region.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 75 statute miles
   east and west of a line from 10 miles west northwest of Mccook NE to
   25 miles west southwest of Garden City KS. For a complete depiction
   of the watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS
   WOU0).

   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.

   &&

   AVIATION...Tornadoes and 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 24025.
