   Mesoscale Discussion 1383

   0434 PM CDT Tue Jul 05 2022

   Areas affected...portions of extreme eastern Tennessee...extreme
   southern Virginia...western into central North Carolina...far
   northern South Carolina

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

   Valid 052134Z - 052330Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

   SUMMARY...A couple of damaging gusts may accompany the stronger
   storm cores embedded within a southward moving squall line. The
   overall severe wind threat is expected to remain isolated through
   the remainder of the evening and a WW issuance is not expected.

   DISCUSSION...A modestly organized MCS has materialized over the past
   couple of hours across portions of the central Appalachians into the
   Carolina Piedmont, where a couple of damaging gusts have recently
   been reported. Deep-layer tropospheric flow/shear remain weak across
   much of the eastern U.S., with squall line organization driven
   predominantly by cold pool mergers in a moderately unstable
   environment. 2000-2500 J/kg MLCAPE resides ahead of the MCS/squall
   line, driven primarily by 8 C/km 0-3 km lapse rates. As such,
   adequate evaporative cooling within the boundary layer should
   support an isolated damaging gust threat through the remainder of
   the afternoon with the stronger storm cores.
