   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 518...

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 518

   SUMMARY...Additional storm development is possible along the cold
   front moving through the Mid-Atlantic. Damaging winds will be the
   primary risk late this afternoon into the evening.

   DISCUSSION...Lack of mid-level ascent has likely contributed to
   storm coverage and intensity being rather low near the Blue Ridge.
   However, with the cold front moving through the region, additional
   storms may develop and organize along this front late this
   afternoon. Temperatures broadly in the low/mid 90s F have
   contributed to 2500+ J/kg MLCAPE. Storm organization will be greater
   farther north given the proximity to the mid-level jet, but cold
   pool mergers could lead to linear structures farther south. Damaging
   winds remain the primary threat.
