   Mesoscale Discussion 0748
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0448 PM CDT Fri May 10 2024

   Areas affected...Parts of SC into eastern NC

   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 231...

   Valid 102148Z - 102315Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 231

   SUMMARY...The threat for hail and damaging gusts will spread
   southeastward toward the coast into this evening.

   DISCUSSION...Numerous small cells (some exhibiting supercell
   characteristics) have produced scattered hail reports in the 1.0 -
   1.75 inch diameter range through the afternoon, within an
   environment characterized by MLCAPE of 750-1500 J/kg and moderate
   deep-layer shear. Any remaining discrete cells will be capable of
   producing hail of a similar size into this evening. There has been
   some tendency for gradually increasing outflow and clustering of
   storms, which could result in a somewhat greater threat for damaging
   wind, especially in areas from SC into southeast NC, where warmer
   temperatures and relatively greater instability remain in place. 

   The primary severe threat should continue to spread toward the
   coast, though a couple stronger cells could trail the primary band
   of convection with an isolated severe threat into this evening.
