   Areas affected...Portions of the Mid-Atlantic

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 303...

   Valid 022043Z - 022215Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 303

   SUMMARY...The large hail and damaging wind threat will continue into
   the evening hours across portions of the Mid-Atlantic.

   DISCUSSION...Scattered to numerous storms have developed within
   severe thunderstorm watch 303 with scattered reports of large hail
   and damaging winds. Despite poor mid-level lapse rates, multiple
   reports of large hail have been received in the Washington DC area
   where stronger shear is present and updrafts have exhibited moderate
   rotation. Farther south, storm mode is more multicellular with less
   of a hail threat and more of a damaging wind threat. 

   The hot and unstable environment ahead of this activity should
   continue to support a severe weather threat to the Atlantic Coast
   into the evening. Farther west, additional rounds of thunderstorms
   have developed. Instability is less in this area due to earlier
   thunderstorm activity, but at least a marginal threat for damaging
   wind gusts exists with this activity. Therefore, the severe
   thunderstorm watch will be maintained in central/western Virginia in
   the wake of the first round of storms.
