   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 324
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   700 PM MDT Sun Jul 29 2018

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Southeastern Colorado
     Southwestern Kansas

   * Effective this Sunday night and Monday morning from 700 PM
     until 100 AM MDT.

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

   SUMMARY...Supercells have begun to consolidate into a small storm
   cluster that will likely grow upscale some during the next few hours
   while continuing to move south-southeastward.  Damaging winds will
   be likely with this cluster, while the stronger embedded supercells
   could produce large hail and perhaps an isolated tornado in the
   short term.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 95
   statute miles east and west of a line from 35 miles north northeast
   of Lamar CO to 15 miles west southwest of Liberal KS. 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.
