URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
Tornado Watch Number 210
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
325 PM CDT Wed May 8 2024

The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

* Tornado Watch for portions of 
  Southwest Arkansas
  Central and North and Northeast Texas

* Effective this Wednesday afternoon and evening from 325 PM
  until 1000 PM CDT.

* Primary threats include...
  A couple tornadoes possible
  Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 4
    inches in diameter likely
  Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph likely

SUMMARY...Isolated supercells are forecast to develop southward
along the dryline in north and central Texas this afternoon.  A very
moist and extremely unstable airmass will be favorable for giant
hail with the more intense updrafts.  The risk for a tornado may
maximize with any mature supercell that can locally augment
low-level shear later this afternoon into the evening.  A cluster of
severe storms may develop towards evening over northeast Texas and
pose a risk for all severe hazards.

The tornado watch area is approximately along and 80 statute miles
east and west of a line from 20 miles north of Paris TX to 55 miles
south southwest of Temple TX. For a complete depiction of the watch
see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU0).

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

REMEMBER...A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for
tornadoes and 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.
