   Areas affected...portions of far northwestern Pennsylvania into far
   southwestern New York

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

   Valid 182024Z - 182200Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

   SUMMARY...A localized concentration of damaging gusts is possible
   over the next few hours along the PA/NY border region. Given the
   spatially and temporally confined nature of the damaging gust
   threat, a WW issuance remains unlikely.

   DISCUSSION...An organized cluster of thunderstorms with a history of
   damaging gusts (and at least one measured 50+ kt gust) has developed
   over far northeastern OH. This cluster is slowly propagating
   northeast as convective outflow spreads to the southeast,
   overturning the ambient airmass in the process. Weak deep-layer
   west-southwesterly flow pivoting around the Mid-Atlantic anticyclone
   suggests that the ongoing cluster, should it persist, will continue
   moving east-northeast. As such, the northeast flank of the ongoing
   cluster may not gust out and undercut convection for at least a few
   more hours. In this time-frame, 3000+ J/kg MLCAPE will support
   stronger storm cores capable of producing a focused corridor locally
   damaging gusts. However, the damaging gusts should be contained
   within a small area, and convection may become outflow dominant and
   undercut sooner than expected. A WW issuance remains unlikely in the
   short-term, but convective trends will continue to be monitored for
   the possibility of greater upscale growth and subsequent damaging
   wind potential.
