   Areas affected...Eastern North Carolina and far southeast Virginia.

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible 

   Valid 241640Z - 241815Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...60 percent

   SUMMARY...Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible this
   afternoon/evening across southeast Virginia and eastern North

   DISCUSSION...Storms have started to develop across southeast
   Virginia and northeast North Carolina in a hot/unstable airmass
   featuring temperatures in the low 90s and dewpoints in the 70s. This
   has yielded 2500 J/kg MLCAPE and an uncapped atmosphere. Initial
   storms have shown occasional supercellular characteristics with some
   multicell clustering also apparent. This storm organization can
   likely be attributed to the 30-35 knot westerly flow aloft apparent
   on the AKQ VWP.

   Expect additional storms to form along and ahead of the cold front
   as it sags south across eastern North Carolina. The modest shear
   combined with strong instability will permit a continued damaging
   wind threat through the afternoon and evening. A severe thunderstorm
   watch may be needed to cover this threat.
