    Mesoscale Discussion 0370
    NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK

    Areas affected...Northern Virginia...Maryland...southern
    Pennsylvania

    Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely=20

    Valid 112054Z - 112300Z

    Probability of Watch Issuance...5 percent

    SUMMARY...A few strong to locally severe thunderstorms may develop
    through late afternoon/early evening, primarily across parts of
    northern Virginia and central Maryland into southern Pennsylvania.

    DISCUSSION...Convection has struggled to deepen this afternoon
    near/just ahead of an eastward-moving cold front, owing to factors
    such as limited boundary layer moisture and weak convergence owing
    to veered near-surface winds within the pre-frontal warm sector.
    While surface dewpoints continue to drop coincident with ample
    boundary layer mixing, a recent modest increase in convergence has
    been noted in vicinity of the front and near/just east of the Blue
    Ridge along with increasing cumuliform development.=20

    Additional development and convective intensification is still
    plausible through the late afternoon/early evening, particularly
    within a corridor across northern Virginia/DC vicinity/central
    Maryland into south-central Pennsylvania where low-level convergence
    should maximize in vicinity of surface low/triple point. Where
    thunderstorms are able to develop and sustain, a warm and well-mixed
    boundary layer would support the possibility of some strong/locally
    damaging wind gusts, aside from the possibility of some hail.
