   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 314
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   140 PM CDT Fri Jun 25 2021

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     South-central/Eastern Kansas
     Western Missouri

   * Effective this Friday afternoon and evening from 140 PM until
     900 PM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered large hail likely with isolated very large hail events
       to 2 inches in diameter possible
     Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph likely
     A tornado or two possible

   SUMMARY...Clusters of storms will continue to develop this afternoon
   along/south of a modifying boundary that extends from
   south-central/eastern Kansas into western Missouri. Some supercells
   and sustained multicells can be expected, with storms likely to
   become more numerous by early evening. Damaging winds and large hail
   are the primary risks, although there is a possibility that some
   tornado risk could materialize later this afternoon/early evening
   particularly for storms interacting with the remnant boundaries.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 65
   statute miles north and south of a line from 30 miles west southwest
   of Hutchinson KS to 25 miles east of Knob Noster MO. For a complete
   depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
   (WOUS64 KWNS WOU4).

   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
   26025.
