URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 349
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
245 PM CDT Sun Jun 9 2019

The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

* Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
  Central Texas

* Effective this Sunday afternoon and evening from 245 PM until
  1000 PM CDT.

* Primary threats include...
  Widespread damaging winds and isolated significant gusts to 75
    mph likely
  Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2
    inches in diameter possible

SUMMARY...Severe convective cluster moving through the Dallas-Fort
Worth metroplex will likely continue southward into central Texas
through the afternoon.  Additional storm development to the west
along its outflow boundary, and along a surface cold front closer to
San Angelo, will likely lead to additional upscale growth of
clusters.  The storm environment favors very strong downdrafts and
resultant damaging wind potential, while the strongest storms may
also have transient supercell structures with large hail.

The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 125
statute miles east and west of a line from 25 miles north northwest
of Waco TX to 25 miles southeast of Del Rio TX. For a complete
depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline update
(WOUS64 KWNS WOU9).

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.
