PUBLIC 
URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 24
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   955 PM EST Sun Jan 22 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Central and South Florida
     Coastal Waters

   SUMMARY...A lingering threat for severe thunderstorms will shift
   southeastward down the peninsula overnight, both from the main band
   of thunderstorms initially across central Florida and relatively
   discrete cells moving off the Gulf.  Instability, moisture and
   vertical shear all will remain favorable for several more hours at
   least.  The risk exists for damaging gusts, isolated large hail and
   a couple of tornadoes.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 70 statute miles
   either side of a line from 35 miles north of Avon Park FL to 55
   miles southwest of Miami FL. For a complete depiction of the watch
   see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU4).

   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.

   &&

   OTHER WATCH INFORMATION...This tornado watch replaces tornado
   watch number 23. Watch number 23 will not be in effect after 955
