Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 278...
Valid 280100Z - 280130Z
The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 278
SUMMARY...A marginally severe hail risk will likely persist beyond
the 02Z watch expiration time. A local watch extension-in-time
(EXT) will probably best address the remaining severe risk.
DISCUSSION...Radar mosaic shows a cluster of strong to severe
thunderstorms over southeastern VA and into far northeastern NC.
The 00Z MHX raob exhibited a very steep 700-500 lapse rate (8
degrees C/km) with a deep-layer shear profile supportive of
continued storm organization (44-kt effective shear). The moisture
rich airmass over the coastal plain will be slow to cool this
evening with moderate buoyancy likely persisting for a few more
hours (MUCAPE 1500-2500 J/kg). As such, a transient
supercell/organized multicellular storm mode will tend to at least
have an accompanying marginally severe hail risk and perhaps a
localized wind damage threat for the next few hours.
