   SEL3

   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 93
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   1250 PM CDT Tue Mar 28 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     West and northwest Texas

   * Effective this Tuesday afternoon and evening from 1250 PM until
     900 PM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered large hail likely with isolated very large hail events
       to 2.5 inches in diameter possible
     A tornado or two possible

   SUMMARY...Storms will continue to increase and steadily spread
   north-northeastward across the Texas South Plains and Texas
   Panhandle this afternoon. Large hail will be the primary risk,
   especially northward into the Texas Panhandle where storms will be
   increasingly elevated. An increasing surface-based severe risk later
   this afternoon may result in an increasing tornado risk across parts
   of the region including the Texas South Plains and Low Rolling
   Plains, such that a new/replacement Tornado Watch would be needed
   across these areas.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 70
   statute miles east and west of a line from 55 miles north of Borger
   TX to 55 miles south southeast of Lubbock TX. For a complete
   depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
   (WOUS64 KWNS WOU3).

   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
   20030.

   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 94
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   150 PM CDT Tue Mar 28 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     West-central and southwest Texas

   * Effective this Tuesday afternoon and evening from 150 PM until
     1000 PM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered large hail likely with isolated very large hail events
       to 3.5 inches in diameter possible

   SUMMARY...As the air mass continues to strongly destabilize this
   afternoon, strong shear will support increasing potential for
   supercells near and just east of the dryline across
   west-central/southwest Texas. Very large hail is the main risk. The
   number of storms should increase across the region later this
   evening with a more widespread severe hail and wind threat evolving,
   even beyond the currently scheduled Watch expiration time.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 60
   statute miles east and west of a line from 60 miles northwest of
   Abilene TX to 55 miles east southeast of Dryden TX. For a complete
   depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
   (WOUS64 KWNS WOU4).

   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.

   OTHER WATCH INFORMATION...CONTINUE...WW 93...
