   Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 316...317...

   Valid 261925Z - 262100Z

   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 316, 317

   SUMMARY...Damaging gusts (some severe) should remain possible across
   Severe Thunderstorm Watches 316 and 317 over the next few hours as a
   QLCS moves across the region. An additional Severe Thunderstorm
   Watch may also be needed downstream, near the OH/PA border area.

   DISCUSSION...A long-lived QLCS, with an extensive history of strong
   and damaging wind gusts, continues to track across eastern portions
   of the OH into central Appalachians. Low to mid 80s F surface
   temperatures precede the QLCS, with the boundary layer mixed enough
   to support a continued threat of damaging gusts for at least a few
   more hours. This favorable airmass extends to the OH/PA border area,
   downstream of both the severe thunderstorm watches, so an additional
   Severe Thunderstorm Watch may be needed in the next hour or so.
