   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 387
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   100 PM CDT Sun Jun 16 2019

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     North-central/west-central Texas

   * Effective this Sunday afternoon and evening from 100 PM until
     800 PM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered damaging winds likely with isolated significant gusts
       to 75 mph possible
     Scattered large hail likely with isolated very large hail events
       to 3 inches in diameter possible
     A tornado or two possible

   SUMMARY...Severe thunderstorms will continue to rapidly develop and
   intensify, initially across north Texas in the vicinity of
   boundaries related to prior storms. This will include supercells
   capable of very large hail, and possibly some tornado risk, which
   may be locally enhanced in vicinity of these boundaries. Over time,
   storms will expand and develop south-southeastward through late
   afternoon/early evening with an increased damaging wind risk aside
   from wind-driven large hail.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 70
   statute miles north and south of a line from 40 miles northwest of
   San Angelo TX to 30 miles east northeast of Dallas TX. For a
   complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
   update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU7).

   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.

Stay tuned for further updates.
