   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 207

   SUMMARY...A swath of large hail from 1-1.75 inches in diameter and
   damaging winds of 55-70 mph will remain likely as organized clusters
   across western parts of North Carolina and South Carolina progress
   east into this evening.

   DISCUSSION...An organized, outflow-dominated cluster is currently
   approaching Charlotte, while a separate supercell exists south of
   Spartanburg. Low-level shear/SRH remains quite weak in area VWP
   data, suggesting that this outflow-dominated evolution will persist
   downstream across the rest of the Piedmont towards the coastal
   plain. With surface temperatures peaking in the upper 80s to low
   90s, MLCAPE of 2000-2500 J/kg has become common. With enhanced
   westerly mid/upper flow over the southern Appalachians, a continued
   severe hail/wind threat is expected straddling the Carolina border
   area for the next several hours.
