   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

     Western Oklahoma
     Northwest and west-central Texas

   * Effective this Monday night and Tuesday morning from 905 PM

   SUMMARY...An already-severe convective complex is becoming better

   sweep southeastward across much of the watch area through the
   remainder of the evening, offering destructive wind, with isolated

   also still may occur from any supercells involved.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 85
   statute miles either side of a line from 50 miles south southwest of
   Lubbock TX to 35 miles east northeast of Altus OK. For a complete
   depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
   (WOUS64 KWNS WOU6).

   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.
