Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 495

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of 
     Northeast Colorado
     The western Nebraska Panhandle
     Southeast Wyoming

   * Effective this Saturday afternoon and evening from 1240 PM
     until 900 PM MDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2.5
       inches in diameter likely
     Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible
     A tornado or two possible

   SUMMARY...Scattered thunderstorm development appears to be underway
   along the Front Range from northeast Colorado into southeast
   Wyoming.  The environment east of the mountains will favor splitting
   supercells capable of producing isolated very large hail, and
   perhaps a tornado with the more dominant right-moving storms. 
   Otherwise, some clustering of storms will be possible later this
   evening farther east toward the Nebraska Panhandle, with an
   attendant threat for a few severe gusts.

   The severe thunderstorm watch area is approximately along and 75
   statute miles east and west of a line from 40 miles east northeast
   of Douglas WY to 25 miles west of Limon CO. For a complete depiction
   of the watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS
