    The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 148

    SUMMARY...Strong thunderstorms have become increasingly organized
    over the last half hour suggesting an increased potential for severe
    weather. WW148 may need to be locally extended.

    DISCUSSION...2130z radar shows some consolidation of updrafts and a
    merging of outflow with ongoing storms to the north occurring with
    the scattered convection along and west of the I-95 corridor through
    southern Virginia. Hi-res model guidance and observation trends
    suggest this will likely continue as storms move into an
    increasingly unstable and moderately sheared environment. A local
    maximum (1500-2000 J/kg) of MLCAPE near the eastern coast will
    likely continue to support robust updraft development over the next
    1 to 2 hours. Storm organization in the form of clusters and short
    line segments from 20-30 kts of effective shear will continue to
    pose a risk for damaging wind gusts before storms move offshore
    around 23-00z. A local extension of WW148 southward may be needed to
    cover the evolving severe threat.
