   Mesoscale Discussion 1463
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0532 AM CDT Sun Sep 16 2018

   Areas affected...Southeastern NC...Far Northeastern SC

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 378...

   Valid 161032Z - 161200Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 378 continues.

   SUMMARY...Tornado threat is expected to persist past the expiration
   of Tornado Watch 378 and another watch will be needed soon.

   DISCUSSION...The overall environment (i.e. both thermodynamic and
   kinematic fields) across the region has remained relatively
   unchanged during the past few hours as Florence continues to
   gradually move southwestward. The slow motion of the system suggests
   the tornado threat will persist across southeastern NC past the
   expiration of Tornado Watch 378 and another watch will be needed
   soon. Additionally, threat for tornadoes across far northeastern SC
   will likely increase as the higher theta-e air continues advecting
   into the region.
