    Mesoscale Discussion 0403
    NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
    1122 AM CDT Wed Apr 21 2021

    Areas affected...Far Southern NJ...Delmarva...Southeast VA

    Concerning...Severe potential...Watch possible=20

    Valid 211622Z - 211815Z

    Probability of Watch Issuance...40 percent

    SUMMARY...Damaging wind gusts are possible as storm develop along
    the front this afternoon.

    DISCUSSION...Recent surface analysis places a cold front from far
    eastern PA southwestward through south-central VA. Temperatures are
    in the low 70s across southern NJ, increasing into the mid 70s
    across south-central/southeast VA. Dewpoints follow a similar trend,
    increasing from the upper 40s across southern NJ into the mid 50s
    across southeast VA. Steep low and mid-level lapse rates are
    fostering destabilization, despite this relatively modest low-level
    moisture. This destabilization is evidenced by an increase in
    cumulus across southeast VA as well as the deepening convection
    along the front from northeast into south-central VA.

    Surface winds are veering ahead of the front, limiting convergence
    along this boundary but at least scattered storm coverage is still
    possible. The presence of steep low-level lapse rates will augment
    downdrafts, resulting in the potential for damaging wind gusts.
    Overall coverage of these stronger gusts is in question, largely as
    a result of uncertainty regarding overall coverage of storms.
    Convective trends will be monitored closely and a Severe
    Thunderstorm Watch may eventually be needed.
