   Areas affected...eastern Virginia into southern New Jersey

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 415...

   Valid 040915Z - 041215Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 415 continues.

   SUMMARY...The threat of tornadoes will continue to spread north out
   of southeast Virginia and into Maryland and Delaware.

   DISCUSSION...Surface analysis shows strong pressure falls moving out
   of northeast NC and into southeast VA, on the order of 3-4 mb/hr. A
   band of supercells, tornadic at times, remains largely intact over
   southeast VA.

   To the north, sporadic small storms have been noted over the past
   few hours, and have increased over the Delmarva recently. This is
   likely due to pressure falls and low-level warm advection as wind
   fields increase.

   Over the next several hours, 0-1 SRH in excess of 300 m2/s2 will
   spread north, possibly reaching far southern NJ around 12Z. As this
   occurs, the environment will become increasingly favorable for
   tornadoes with both cells ahead of the main arcing line of storms
   and within the line itself.
