   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 622
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1210 PM CDT Mon Aug 26 2019

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Parts of central and southern Missouri

   * Effective this Monday afternoon from 1210 PM until 500 PM CDT.

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

   SUMMARY...A well-developed storm cluster with bowing characteristics
   will likely persist into the afternoon while moving
   east-southeastward into an environment more supportive of
   surface-based storms.  The storms have produced measured gusts up to
   76 mph in the past hour or so, and the threat for damaging winds and
   isolated large hail should continue for several more hours.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 50
   statute miles north and south of a line from 50 miles north of
   Joplin MO to 45 miles east southeast of Fort Leonard Wood MO. For a
   complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
   update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU2).

   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 65 knots. A
   few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 550. Mean storm motion vector
   30040.
