   Mesoscale Discussion 1651
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0227 PM CDT Thu Aug 04 2022

   Areas affected...Eastern PA into southern New England

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

   Valid 041927Z - 042130Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

   SUMMARY...The threat for primarily isolated damaging gusts will
   spread northeastward this afternoon.

   DISCUSSION...Sporadic damaging winds and observed gusts up to 40-45
   mph have been noted recently when convection spreading northeastward
   across northeast PA into central/southern NY. Deep-layer shear
   remains weak across the region, but unidirectional southwesterly
   flow will continue to support occasionally vigorous redevelopment
   along a northeastward-propagating cold pool. Moderate downstream
   instability (MLCAPE of 1500-2000 J/kg) and steep low-level lapse
   rates will continue to support a threat of localized damaging wind
   gusts as storms spread toward southern New England through the
   afternoon. With the threat still expected to be relatively
   disorganized, watch issuance remains unlikely.
