   Mesoscale Discussion 0301
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0353 PM CDT Sun Mar 28 2021

   Areas affected...Southeast Virginia and eastern North Carolina

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 68...

   Valid 282053Z - 282200Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 68

   SUMMARY...Threat for damaging wind gusts across WW68 should continue
   into early evening.

   DISCUSSION...A broken band of storms roughly along the I-95 corridor
   from Virginia southward will continue to move east over the next few
   hours. A few wind gusts to 50kts have been noted with these storms
   suggesting a damaging wind risk remains. SPC mesoanalysis indicates
   sufficient buoyancy of 1000-1500 J/kg of MLCAPE exists east of the
   ongoing storms. This should continue to support strong updraft
   development and a subsequent severe weather risk into the early
   evening. Storm longevity is a bit more questionable farther east
   toward the coast where a modified airmass exists behind an inland
   seabreaze front. Cooler temperatures should eventually weaken storms
   near the coast and barrier islands this evening.
