Areas affected...Chesapeake Bay Vicinity
Concerning...Tornado Watch 350...
Valid 090201Z - 090300Z
The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 350 continues.
SUMMARY...A marginal threat for a brief tornado may continue along
the immediate Atlantic coast beyond the expiration of Tornado Watch
350. No additional WW is expected this evening.
DISCUSSION...The strongest convection in WW 350 has continued to
move offshore in eastern North Carolina and Virginia. Farther
inland, there has been little notable low-level rotation on regional
radar imagery. As tropical storm Elsa continues northeast this
evening, an isolated stronger convective cell could develop along
the gulf stream and move inland. While low-level winds could still
support a brief tornado, the unfavorable low-level thermodynamic
environment -- especially inland of the immediate coast -- suggests
that this threat will be marginal. No additional watches are
anticipated this evening.
