    Concerning...Tornado Watch 447...

    Valid 181929Z - 182100Z

    The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 447 continues.

    SUMMARY...The tornado and damaging-wind threat will continue to
    gradually increase this afternoon.

    DISCUSSION...While cells with occasional weak rotation have been
    noted recently across central PA and northern MD, supercell
    structures have this far struggled to be sustained across WW 447.
    Earlier discrete cells may have struggled to mature in the midlevel
    dry slot (noted in WV imagery), but renewed development may be more
    vigorous this afternoon as the dry slot shifts eastward and ascent
    associated with the primary midlevel vorticity maximum spreads over
    the region.=20

    Low-level shear/SRH remains sufficient to support some tornado
    threat with any sustained supercell. The greatest relative tornado
    risk may reside across central PA in the vicinity of the
    increasingly diffuse warm front, as convection deepens to the south
    and moves through the baroclinic zone this afternoon. However, any
    sustained cell within the warm sector will also pose some threat.
    Locally damaging wind gusts will also remain possible, especially in
    areas where some steepening of low-level lapse rates has occurred.
