   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 283
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   555 PM CDT Sat May 28 2022

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Western and Central Nebraska

   * Effective this Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning from 555
     PM until 100 AM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered damaging winds and isolated significant gusts to 75
       mph possible
     Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2
       inches in diameter possible

   SUMMARY...At least widely scattered strong to severe storms are
   expected to develop across the region early this evening, initially
   across west-central/southwest Nebraska, and subsequently
   northeastward toward north-central/central Nebraska by late evening.
   Adequate instability and moderately strong atmospheric winds could
   support some high-based supercells aside from sustained clusters of
   storms. The hot/modestly moist environment will support the
   possibility of severe-caliber wind gusts along with the potential
   for large hail.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 80
   statute miles east and west of a line from 35 miles southeast of
   North Platte NE to 10 miles northwest of Valentine NE. 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 281...WW 282...

   AVIATION...A few severe thunderstorms with hail surface and aloft to
   2 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 65 knots. A
   few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 550. Mean storm motion vector
   23025.
