The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

* Tornado Watch for portions of 
  Parts of central and north Texas

  until 1000 PM CST.

* Primary threats include...
  A few tornadoes possible
  Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph likely
  Isolated large hail events to 1 inch in diameter possible

SUMMARY...Thunderstorms will persist through the evening within a
broken band in the warm sector, generally west of Interstate 35. 
Gradual destabilization of the low levels, in an environment with
strong low-level wind shear, will support a threat for tornadoes
with embedded supercells.  Later this evening, a squall line will
reach the watch area, with an attendant threat for damaging winds
and brief tornadoes with embedded circulations.

The tornado watch area is approximately along and 75 statute miles
east and west of a line from 60 miles northwest of Mineral Wells TX
to 55 miles east of Junction TX. For a complete depiction of the
watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU2).


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.



AVIATION...Tornadoes and a few severe thunderstorms with hail
surface and aloft to 1 inch. Extreme turbulence and surface wind
gusts to 60 knots. A few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 450. Mean
storm motion vector 22035.
