   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of

   threat should persist into the late evening hours as storms spread
   southeastward onto the High Plains.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 55
   statute miles east and west of a line from 40 miles west northwest
   of Limon CO to 35 miles southeast of Raton NM. For a complete
   depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
   (WOUS64 KWNS WOU5).

   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
   2.5 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 60 knots. A
   few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 550. Mean storm motion vector
