   PUBLIC SEVERE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   0444 AM CDT THU JUN 13 2013

   ...SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED OVER PARTS OF THE MID ATLANTIC
   STATES TODAY...

   THE NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER IN NORMAN OK IS FORECASTING THE
   DEVELOPMENT OF LARGE HAIL...DAMAGING WIND GUSTS AND A FEW TORNADOES
   OVER PARTS OF THE MID ATLANTIC STATES TODAY.

   THE AREAS MOST LIKELY TO EXPERIENCE THIS ACTIVITY INCLUDE

          WASHINGTON DC
          DELAWARE
          CENTRAL AND EASTERN MARYLAND
          SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY
          SOUTHEAST PENNSYLVANIA
          CENTRAL AND EASTERN VIRGINIA

   ELSEWHERE...SEVERE STORMS ARE ALSO POSSIBLE TODAY ACROSS THE
   CUMBERLAND PLATEAU INTO THE SOUTH ATLANTIC AND EASTERN GULF
   STATES...AS WELL AS ACROSS PARTS OF THE NORTHERN AND CENTRAL ROCKIES
   INTO ADJACENT HIGH PLAINS.

   AN INITIAL CLUSTER OF THUNDERSTORMS SPREADING EAST OF THE
   ALLEGHENIES MAY CONTINUE THROUGH MUCH OF THE NORTHERN MID ATLANTIC
   COAST REGION THROUGH MID MORNING...BEFORE WEAKENING...ACCOMPANIED BY
   A CONTINUING RISK FOR POTENTIALLY DAMAGING WIND GUSTS.  IN THE WAKE
   OF THIS ACTIVITY...THE MOIST ENVIRONMENT ACROSS MUCH OF THE MID
   ATLANTIC COAST REGION STILL APPEARS LIKELY TO BECOME QUITE UNSTABLE
   BY THIS AFTERNOON...WITH DAYTIME HEATING.  COUPLED WITH A BAND OF
   STRONGER JET LEVEL WINDS...CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO BECOME
   CONDUCIVE TO SEVERE STORM DEVELOPMENT.  INITIAL
   STORMS...PARTICULARLY WEST OF THE INTERSTATE 95 CORRIDOR...MAY BE
   SCATTERED IN NATURE...BUT STILL CAPABLE OF PRODUCING STRONG WIND
   GUSTS AND LARGE HAIL.  A COUPLE OF TORNADOES ALSO APPEAR POSSIBLE
   ...PARTICULARLY ACROSS PARTS OF EASTERN MARYLAND AND THE DELMARVA
   PENINSULA NORTHWARD INTO PARTS OF SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA AND
   SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY.  LATER THIS AFTERNOON...INTO THE EVENING
   HOURS...STORMS MAY CONSOLIDATE INTO A SQUALL LINE EAST OF THE I-95
   CORRIDOR...ACROSS EASTERN VIRGINIA INTO THE DELMARVA
   PENINSULA...WITH PERHAPS INCREASING POTENTIAL FOR WIDESPREAD
   POTENTIALLY DAMAGING WIND GUSTS.

   STATE AND LOCAL EMERGENCY MANAGERS ARE MONITORING THIS DEVELOPING
   SITUATION. THOSE IN THE THREATENED AREA ARE URGED TO REVIEW SEVERE
   WEATHER SAFETY RULES AND TO LISTEN TO RADIO...TELEVISION...AND NOAA
   WEATHER RADIO FOR POSSIBLE WATCHES...WARNINGS...AND STATEMENTS LATER
   TODAY.
