   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     West central to northeastern Minnesota
     Southeastern North Dakota
     Northeastern South Dakota
     Extreme northwestern Wisconsin
     Lake Superior

   * Effective this Sunday afternoon and evening from 350 PM until
     1100 PM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2

     A tornado or two possible

   SUMMARY...Thunderstorm development/intensification is expected the
   next few hours from southeastern North Dakota eastward into
   Minnesota.  The storm environment will initially favor supercells
   with large hail and the potential for a tornado or two.  Storms
   should grow upscale into clusters and line segments later this
   evening, when the primary threat will become damaging winds and
   hail.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 45
   statute miles north and south of a line from 120 miles west
   southwest of Detroit Lakes MN to 40 miles south southeast of Ely MN.
   For a complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch
   outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU7).

   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 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 60 knots. A
   few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 550. Mean storm motion vector
