   Mesoscale Discussion 1213

   Areas affected...the Piedmont into coastal plain of North
   Carolina...South Carolina and Georgia

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 385...386...

   Valid 172201Z - 172330Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 385, 386

   SUMMARY...Increasing thunderstorm development, gradually evolving
   into growing clusters, will be accompanied by increasing outflow
   with strong surface gusts through 8-9 PM.  Occasional localized
   gusts may exceed severe limits, and becoming potentially damaging. 
   A new severe weather watch probably will be issued downstream of WW
   385 before it expires.

   DISCUSSION...In areas not impacted by ongoing convective
   development, a strongly heated (temps in the mid/upper 90s F) and
   seasonably moist boundary-layer appears characterized by steep lapse
   rates and CAPE in excess of 2000 J/kg.  This should support
   substantive continuing upscale growth of convection, ahead of a
   conglomerate outflow boundary now advancing to the southeast of the
   southern Appalachians.  Propagation off the higher terrain is being
   aided by weak to modest (10-20 kt northwesterly deep-layer mean
   flow), which may be sufficiently strong, coupled with the
   thermodynamic profiles and precipitation loading, to support strong
   surface gusts at least occasionally approaching 50 kt.
