    Maybe the rain and associated coastal low will move through quicker than expected and allow for good rain tonight and earlier clearing tomorrow? Earlier timing is common with systems.

    0.47" today, earlier we had some steady rain, now we have steady drizzle even without radar returns overhead.

    We will not have the benefit of good shear for this event, but keep in mind that one of Virginia's best tornado events occurred in August 1993 and was not a tropical induced event.

    We have had decent mid level lapse rates(around or just above 7 C/km) for the morning and early afternoon, not enough shear today.

    Today seems to be a discrete storm mode, question for us will be if that can occur tomorrow and hold on for an evening Bay breeze or low level jet?

    North of Baltimore, and northeastward through Philadelphia to central NJ could have quite a rough evening. Storm mode looks to stay discrete as storms continue to move east southeast towards the areas of best parameters as the day/evening progresses. Tomorrow could be quite a rough day in our area.

    6z 3kNAM shows scattered severe storms rolling through our region between 18z and 21z. 9z HRRR run shows similar scenario with more storms. 10z HRRR run was much more quiet. The MCS is in western Ohio and southern Indiana, We should see some decent storms later today.

    We shall see what SPC and Sterling have to say over the next few hours. The lapse rates over us now are quite strong. That will move out as we head towards morning. The sun will definitely be out for some period of time tomorrow, just a matter of how long and whether a new batch of prefrontal storms breaks out and squashes any substantial buildup of instability. The timing of the event across AL/MS is slightly quicker than was expected. That throws wrinkles into our forecast tomorrow.
