URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 95
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
230 PM CDT Tue Apr 23 2019

The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

* Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
  Southwest into western north Texas

* Effective this Tuesday afternoon and evening from 230 PM until
  1100 PM CDT.

* Primary threats include...
  Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2.5
    inches in diameter possible
  Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible

SUMMARY...Thunderstorm development is expected along a slow-moving
front the next few hours from southwest Texas into western north
Texas, and over the high terrain west of Del Rio.  The storm
environment along and south of the watch will favor splitting
supercells capable of producing isolated very large hail and
damaging gusts.  Storm clusters should persist into the early
overnight hours along the front, with a gradual transition to
locally heavy rainfall as the main concern.

The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 65
statute miles north and south of a line from 45 miles north
northwest of Dryden TX to 25 miles east of Mineral Wells TX. For a
complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU5).

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
2.5 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 60 knots. A
few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 500. Mean storm motion vector
26020.
