The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

extreme eastern West Virginia Panhandle

coastal waters

Effective this Tuesday night and Wednesday morning from 605 PM

until 100 am EST.

Tornadoes... hail to 1 inch in diameter... thunderstorm wind gusts

to 80 mph... and dangerous lightning are possible in these areas.

The Tornado Watch area is approximately along and 65 statute miles

east and west of a line from 15 miles north of Harrisburg

Pennsylvania to 25 miles east of Rocky Mount North Carolina. For

a complete depiction of the watch see the associated watch outline

update (wous64 kwns wou7).

Remember... a Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for

tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area.

Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening

weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible


Discussion... line of strong/severe storms over central VA/NC will

track eastward this evening across the watch area. Several small

Bow/lewp structures have developed along line... in advance of

impressive mid level shortwave trough. Despite marginal

instability... very strong wind fields and dynamics suggest a threat

of damaging winds and isolated tornadoes.

Aviation... tornadoes and a few severe thunderstorms with hail

surface and aloft to 1 inch. Extreme turbulence and surface wind

gusts to 70 knots. A few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 450.

Mean storm motion vector 22040.

Same thing that goes on every year. Aside from the Hurricane season, this year has been pretty "average" for most of the U.S.

The US sees two severe weather seasons. The first is more active as the weather goes from cool to warm in the Spring. The second is now when the weather goes from warm to cool.

Hope eveyone enjoyed today's and yesterday's warm weather because we won't be seeing that again for a while. Our second snow is likely to occur next week (Sunday night into Monday perhaps).
