    The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a
    
    * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
      Central and Eastern Iowa
    
    * Effective this Friday morning from 100 AM until 700 AM CDT.
    
    * Primary threats include...
      Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2
        inches in diameter possible
      Isolated damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible
    
    SUMMARY...Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms will move
    east-southeastward across the region overnight. Isolated severe hail
    should be the most common hazard, but locally damaging winds could
    also occur, particularly if storms semi-organize into a linear
    cluster, which is most probable to occur across
    north-central/east-central Iowa.
    
    The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 75
    statute miles north and south of a line from 25 miles west southwest
    of Fort Dodge IA to 35 miles north northeast of Cedar Rapids IA. For
    a complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline
    update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU6).
    
    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
    
    REMEMBER...A Severe Thunderstorm Watch...
