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.
