   URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 113
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   820 PM CDT Sun Apr 2 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     South-central and southwestern Louisiana
     Coastal Waters

   * Effective this Sunday night and Monday morning from 820 PM
     until 200 AM CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     A few tornadoes likely with a couple intense tornadoes possible
     Scattered damaging winds and isolated significant gusts to 75
       mph possible
     Isolated large hail events to 1.5 inches in diameter possible

   SUMMARY...A band of thunderstorms is expected to reorient more
   north-south and begin to progress eastward over the watch area
   tonight, offering damaging gusts and the risk for embedded
   tornadoes.  The potential still exists for tornadic supercells ahead
   of the line as well.  See SPC mesoscale discussion 411 for initial
   meteorological details.  This effectively replaces tornado watch 110
   in the Lake Charles WFO warning area.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 55 statute miles
   either side of a line from 30 miles west of Intracoastal City LA to
   60 miles east northeast of Fort Polk LA. 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.

   OTHER WATCH INFORMATION...CONTINUE...WW 110...WW 111...WW 112...

   surface and aloft to 1.5 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind
