First Sentence

"April and May 1997, peak tornado season in the southern Mississippi Valley and Texas, had been relatively quiet, but when a weak cold front pushed toward central Texas on May 27, the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) in Norman, Oklahoma, issued Tornado Watch 338 for a large area of the state effective from 1:15 P.M. until 7:00 P.M. central daylight time."
