   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Northeastern Kansas
     Northwestern Missouri

   * Effective this Tuesday afternoon and evening from 155 PM until
     1000 PM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     A few tornadoes likely with a couple intense tornadoes possible
     Widespread large hail and scattered very large hail events to 3
       inches in diameter likely
     Widespread damaging winds and isolated significant gusts to 80
       mph likely

   SUMMARY...Initially elevated storms could become rooted near the
   surface along a slow-moving front from northeastern Kansas into
   northern Missouri this afternoon.  Additional storms are expected to
   form and spread northeastward into the watch area from the southwest
   by mid-late afternoon.  Supercells are expected with very large hail
   and potentially a few tornadoes, especially with storms able move
   along the front.  Upscale growth into a cluster is also possible
   late this afternoon/evening, with an increasing threat for damaging
   winds.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 50 statute miles
   north and south of a line from 35 miles south southeast of
   Kirksville MO to 25 miles south southwest of Manhattan KS. For a
   complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
   update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU5).

   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.
 


   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 276
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   250 PM CDT Tue May 28 2019

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Central and south central Kansas
     Central Oklahoma

   * Effective this Tuesday afternoon and evening from 250 PM until
     1000 PM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     A few tornadoes likely
     Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 3
       inches in diameter likely
     Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph likely

   SUMMARY...Scattered supercell development is expected in the next
   couple of hours along the dryline from west central Oklahoma
   northward into central Kansas, as well as in the warm sector east of
   the dryline across south central Kansas.  The storm environment will
   favor very large hail as a primary concern, though a few tornadoes
   will also be possible.  Damaging gusts will become more of a threat
   if any clustering of storms occurs.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 60 statute miles
   east and west of a line from 35 miles northeast of Salina KS to 30
   miles east of Fort Sill OK. For a complete depiction of the watch
   see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU6).

   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.

URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 274
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   145 PM EDT Tue May 28 2019

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Western New Jersey
     Extreme east central Ohio
     Pennsylvania
     The extreme northern West Virginia Panhandle

   * Effective this Tuesday afternoon and evening from 145 PM until
     1000 PM EDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     A few tornadoes possible
     Scattered large hail likely with isolated very large hail events
       to 2 inches in diameter possible
     Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph likely

   SUMMARY...Scattered severe thunderstorm development is expected this
   afternoon from Ohio into Pennsylvania, and storms will spread
   generally eastward through this evening.  The storm environment will
   be favorable for supercells capable of producing large hail and
   damaging winds.  A more favorable environment for tornadoes is
   expected across northern and eastern Pennsylvania into western New
   Jersey as the low levels destabilize.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 60 statute miles
   north and south of a line from 40 miles west southwest of Franklin
   PA to 35 miles north northeast of Trenton NJ. 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.

Additional severe storms and potentially strong tornadoes are expected later this evening across the Plains states.

I'll be monitoring the situation closely and will provide WxLIVE coverage thru the newly launched #WxLIVENOW YouTube channel if conditions warrant.

Otherwise Lisa and I plan on seeing you at regular time tonight on #WxLIVEat945.  See you then!
