URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
Tornado Watch Number 503
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
300 PM CDT Sat Oct 21 2017

The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

* Tornado Watch for portions of 
  Western and central Oklahoma
  Northwest Texas

* Effective this Saturday afternoon and evening from 300 PM until
  1000 PM CDT.

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

SUMMARY...Thunderstorm development is expected around 4pm, with an
increase in storm coverage/intensity into this evening.  More
isolated supercells with very large hail will be possible initially
across western Oklahoma and northwest Texas.  Storms will then grow
upscale into a more solid squall line by late evening, when damaging
winds will become the more common threat.  A tornado or two could
occur with the initial discrete supercells, as well as later this
evening with circulations embedded in the developing line across
central Oklahoma.

The tornado watch area is approximately along and 60 statute miles
east and west of a line from 45 miles west northwest of Ponca City
OK to 55 miles southwest of Wichita Falls TX. For a complete
depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
(WOUS64 KWNS WOU3).

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.

  Isolated large hail events to 1.5 inches in diameter possible
  A tornado or two possible

SUMMARY...Thunderstorms will increase in coverage and intensity
through late afternoon along and immediately ahead of a cold front. 
The stronger storms initially could pose a large hail threat, though
storm mergers should lead to the formation of a squall line with
damaging winds by this evening.  An isolated tornado could occur
with embedded circulations in the line.

The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 70
statute miles east and west of a line from 55 miles north northwest
of Chillicothe MO to 50 miles south southeast of Wichita KS. For a
complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU2).

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