   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   activity should offer Large hail and locally severe gusts.  Some
   clustering, upscale growth and southward forward propagation are
   possible, which would boost the wind threat locally along any such
   corridor.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 105
   statute miles east and west of a line from 45 miles west northwest
   of Russell KS to 50 miles south southwest of Hutchinson KS. For a
   complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
   update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU1).

   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.
