   Areas affected...portions of northeast PA...central/eastern
   NY...central/southern VT/NH...northern CT...central/estern MA

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 385...

   Valid 302020Z - 302215Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 385

   SUMMARY...The threat for damaging winds and perhaps isolated large
   hail continues primarily over the eastern two-thirds of the watch

   DISCUSSION...A loosely organized area of strong/occasionally severe
   thunderstorms was moving across eastern New York/northeast
   Pennsylvania at 2015Z.  A tendency towards a more linear
   reflectivity structure/short line segments has been noted since
   1930Z over east-central New York in the general vicinity of KSCH,
   with a subtle low/mid-level cyclonic circulation was evident over
   Saratoga County NY.  Latest objective analysis and area VWP data
   indicate 35-45 kts of deep-layer shear and 1000-1500 j/kg of MLCAPE,
   and this downstream environment will continue to support a risk for
   isolated/widely scattered damaging winds for the next few hours. 
   Across western portions of the watch area, generally weak buoyancy
   (500-locally 1000 j/kg) and adequate shear remains in place for at
   least some risk for a stronger storm over the next couple of hours
   with the convective line currently moving through central New York
