   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 235
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   340 PM MDT Thu Jun 28 2018

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Eastern Montana
     Northwestern South Dakota

   * Effective this Thursday afternoon and evening from 340 PM until
     1100 PM MDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     A few tornadoes likely
     Widespread damaging winds and isolated significant gusts to 80
       mph likely
     Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 4
       inches in diameter likely

   SUMMARY...Severe thunderstorms, including a few supercells with
   tornadoes and very large/damaging hail, are expected to develop over
   the MT part of the watch area and ultimately move/spread into
   portions of the Dakotas.  The threat for severe wind will increase
   as activity interacts with very rich low-level moisture and congeals
   into clusters this evening.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 80 statute miles
   north and south of a line from 95 miles west of Miles City MT to 10
   miles northeast of Baker MT. For a complete depiction of the watch
   see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU5).

   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.
