    Mesoscale Discussion 1776
    NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
    0144 PM CDT Wed Sep 22 2021

    Areas affected...portions of central into northern South
    Carolina...western North Carolina...western Virginia

    Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely=20

    Valid 221844Z - 222115Z

    Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

    SUMMARY...A couple damaging gusts may accompany the stronger storms
    through the remainder of the afternoon. A WW issuance is not
    anticipated given the isolated, brief nature of the severe threat.

    DISCUSSION...A broad confluence zone, delineating the surface cold
    front/lee trough axis, is progressing across the central/southern
    Appalachians, accompanied primarily by heavier rain bands. However,
    adequate diurnal heating in advance of this confluence band has
    supported surface temperatures reaching near 80 F with 70+ F
    dewpoints, contributing to 1000-2000 J/kg MLCAPE in the absence of
    appreciable lapse rates (per 18Z mesoanalysis).=20

    With continued surface heating, and modest deep-layer ascent from
    the approaching mid-level trough overspreading the surface
    lee-trough axis, some convective intensification is expected along
    the aforementioned confluence zone. However,
    unidirectional/meridional tropospheric flow suggests that vertical
    shear profiles will be mediocre in terms of supporting severe
    potential. Coupled with less than 5.5 C/km mid-level lapse rates,
    updrafts are not expected to become overly robust, hence the
    unlikelihood of a WW issuance. Nonetheless, one of the stronger=20
    line segments within the confluence band may support a couple strong
    wind gusts this afternoon.
