    Mesoscale Discussion 1557

    Areas affected...MD...DC...northern VA...central/eastern PA

    Concerning...Tornado Watch 447...

    Valid 182057Z - 182230Z

    The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 447 continues.

    SUMMARY...The threat for a couple tornadoes and isolated damaging
    wind gusts will continue into the early evening.

    DISCUSSION...At 2045Z, robust convection has recently developed
    across south-central PA, in conjunction with the primary midlevel
    vorticity maximum associated with post-tropical cyclone Fred.
    Further east, convection continues to occasionally flare up across
    southeast PA and northern MD. The westernmost convective band now
    moving across south-central PA should be maintained as it moves
    eastward this evening. While the strongest low-level shear/SRH may
    remain east of this band, occasional rotating cells will be possible
    into this evening with the band, posing a threat of isolated
    damaging wind gusts and a couple tornadoes.=20

    Additional rotating cells will remain possible further east,
    potentially evolving out of showers ongoing across southeast PA, or
    along the southern edge of a cluster moving across central PA, where
    a diffuse baroclinic zone remains in place. Some tornado threat may
    still evolve with any sustained cells in this region, where
    low-level shear/SRH remain somewhat enhanced.
