   Areas affected...eastern Maryland...Delaware...southern New
   Jersey...far southeast Pennsylvania

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 482...483...

   Valid 011909Z - 012145Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 482, 483 continues.

   SUMMARY...A threat for a few tornadoes along with damaging wind
   gusts will shift northeast out of Maryland and into Delaware,
   southern New Jersey, and extreme southeast Pennsylvania.

   DISCUSSION...Surface analysis shows a stationary front across
   northern MD, southeast PA and into southern NJ, with a very moist
   air mass to the south. Given persistent southerly surface winds
   impinging on this front, it is likely that sufficient elevated
   instability exists immediately north of the boundary to support
   severe storms, most likely in the form of an MCS which should travel
   east/northeastward. Damaging winds will be possible with such
   activity, with embedded circulations possible.

   Otherwise, a tornado threat remains on and south of the front, where
   storms will have access to around 2000 J/kg SBCAPE. The tornado risk
   is maximized for northeastward-moving cells, providing maximum SRH
   per 16Z IAD sounding. Other cells moving north/northwestward ahead
   of the consolidating convective line may still yield strong gusts.
