Storm Prediction Center Issues a Statement Concerning Potential Tornado Outbreak

As I expressed in my from last night, today will be a bad day for the Plains.  As expected, the severe threat has been elevated to a rare HIGH RISK.  Here is a statement from the Storm Prediction Center on the potential of a violent outbreak of tornadoes late today/tonight for parts of Texas and Oklahoma.  

   1214 PM CDT MON MAY 20 2019

   ...Outbreak of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms expected over
   parts of the southern Plains today and tonight...

     Much of Oklahoma
     Northwest Texas and the eastern Texas Panhandle

   * HAZARDS...
     Numerous intense and long-track tornadoes
     Widespread damaging winds, some hurricane force
     Widespread large hail, some baseball size

   * SUMMARY...
     An outbreak of tornadoes, some potentially long-track and
     violent, is expected today into this evening over portions of
     northwest Texas into western and central Oklahoma. More isolated
     but still potentially dangerous severe weather, including
     tornadoes and destructive winds and hail, is possible in
     surrounding parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Arkansas.

   Preparedness actions...

   Review your severe weather safety procedures for the possibility
   of dangerous weather today. Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio,, or other media for watches and warnings. A tornado
   watch means that conditions are favorable for tornadoes to form
   during the next several hours. If a tornado warning is issued for
   your area, move to a place of safety, ideally in a basement or
   interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building.
