   Mesoscale Discussion 1569
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0702 PM CDT Thu Oct 11 2018

   Areas affected...southeast Virginia through southern Maryland

   Concerning...Tornado Watch 409...

   Valid 120002Z - 120100Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 409 continues.

   SUMMARY...The threat for isolated tornadoes will persist through
   eastern VA and possibly into southern MD through about 03Z. Current
   tornado watch is scheduled to expire at 01Z, but a local extension
   for a couple of hours from eastern VA and into southern MD will
   probably be needed.

   DISCUSSION...The outer convective rainbands of Michael will continue
   developing through the remainder of eastern VA this evening. Largest
   0-1 km hodographs accompanying the attendant low-level jet will
   remain confined to eastern VA and possibly as far north as southern
   MD. The tornado threat appears to be ending across eastern NC as
   low-level winds veer and dryer air aloft is entrained into the
   southern periphery of the circulation.
