URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 195
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
155 AM CDT Mon May 20 2019

The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

* Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
  Eastern New Mexico
  Oklahoma Panhandle
  Texas Panhandle and South Plains

* Effective this Monday morning from 155 AM until 1000 AM CDT.

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

SUMMARY...Thunderstorms should grow in coverage and intensify
through sunrise and beyond, offering predominantly a large-hail
threat for the first few hours, with isolated severe gusts possible.
 As storms organize further into greater moisture and instability
toward sunrise, the damaging-wind risk will increase as well.

The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 85
statute miles east and west of a line from 55 miles east southeast
of Roswell NM to 25 miles north northeast of Guymon OK. 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 550. Mean storm motion vector
23035.

PUBLIC SEVERE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0212 AM CDT MON MAY 20 2019

...Outbreak of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms expected over
parts of the southern Plains this afternoon and tonight...

* LOCATIONS...
  Northwest Texas
  Western and central Oklahoma

* HAZARDS...
  Numerous tornadoes, several intense and long track
  Widespread damaging winds, some hurricane force
  Widespread large hail, some baseball size

* SUMMARY...
  An outbreak of tornadoes, some potentially long-track and
  violent, is expected today into this evening over portions of
  northwest Texas into western and central Oklahoma. More-isolated
  but still potentially dangerous severe weather, including
  tornadoes, is possible in surrounding parts of Texas, Oklahoma,
  Kansas, and Arkansas.

Preparedness actions...

Review your severe weather safety procedures for the possibility
of dangerous weather today. Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio, 
weather.gov, or other media for watches and warnings. A tornado
watch means that conditions are favorable for tornadoes to form
during the next several hours. If a tornado warning is issued for
your area, move to a place of safety, ideally in a basement or
interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building.
