   Concerning...Tornado Watch 335...

   Valid 272049Z - 272215Z

   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 335 continues.

   SUMMARY...The severe threat continues across Tornado Watch 335.
   Large hail and damaging gusts remain a concern. The best chance for
   tornadoes would be closer to the coastline ahead of ongoing storms.

   DISCUSSION...Multicells and transient supercells persist across
   northeastern NC and are moving northeast toward southeast VA. At the
   moment, these are the most robust storms across eastern NC/VA,
   though an increase in thunderstorm coverage is possible later this
   afternoon. Given widespread 1000-3000 J/kg MLCAPE and 40+ kts of
   effective bulk shear, most thunderstorms should maintain a
   multicellular or transient supercell mode through the afternoon.
   While a tornado or two cannot be ruled out anywhere across Tornado
   Watch 335 in eastern NC/VA, the best chance for tornadoes appears to
   be far southeast VA/northeast NC closer to the coast, where backed
   low-level winds are contributing to slightly larger low-level
