   Areas affected...Eastern PA...NJ...Far Southeast NY

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 426...

   Valid 202348Z - 210115Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 426

   SUMMARY...The threat of locally damaging wind continues across
   mainly the southern portion of WW 426, with a general diminishing
   trend expected with time this evening.

   DISCUSSION...The northern portion of the long-lived MCS approaching
   the Mid-Atlantic has weakened quite a bit across portions of
   southeast NY, likely due to a lack of buoyancy and weak midlevel
   lapse rates. A few stronger wind gusts remain possible along the
   leading outflow as this convection approaches NYC, but the severe
   threat appears to have diminished in this area and the northern
   portions of the watch may be canceled early. 

   Further south, a stronger embedded cell is approaching the I-95
   corridor north of Philadelphia. With more vigorous convection
   persisting in this area, the threat for locally damaging wind will
   continue for the next 1-2 hours as convection approaches the coast.
   With time, nocturnal cooling/destabilization should eventually
   result in a weakening trend with this activity as well.
