   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 526
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1105 PM CDT Tue Oct 12 2021

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Western and Northern Oklahoma
     Northwest Texas

   * Effective this Tuesday night and Wednesday morning from 1105 PM
     until 600 AM CDT.

       to 75 mph possible
     Isolated large hail events to 1.5 inches in diameter possible

   SUMMARY...Broken quasi-linear clusters of storms will move
   east-northeastward across the region overnight. Damaging winds will
   be possible through the overnight/early morning hours. A few mostly
   brief tornadoes will also be a possibility given the unseasonably
   high moisture content and robust low-level shear.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 85 statute miles
   east and west of a line from 15 miles north northwest of Alva OK to
   20 miles west southwest of Altus OK. For a complete depiction of the
   watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU6).

   PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

   area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for
   threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements
   and possible warnings.
