  4. Mesoscale Discussion 0928 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0105 PM CDT Wed May 31 2017 Areas affected...Eastern OH...Western PA...Northern WV Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely Valid 311805Z - 311930Z Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent SUMMARY...Isolated hail and damaging wind gusts are possible over the next several hours as thunderstorms move across eastern OH, western PA, and far northern WV. DISCUSSION...Storms have developed over the past hour within the modestly unstable airmass across central OH. Primary forcing for this increased convection is likely the shortwave trough currently pivoting through the southwestern periphery of the large upper low centered over Ontario. Despite relatively scant low-level moisture, some instability has developed ahead of these storms across central OH and western PA, largely as a result of cool mid-level temperatures (around -19 deg C at 500 mb) and modest surface heating. Unidirectional shear profiles will support fast storm motion and the potential for a few strong wind gusts with the more robust updrafts. Additionally, the enhanced flow aloft and resulting potential updraft organization is supportive of an isolated hail threat. Limited severe coverage is currently expected, precluding higher watch probabilities. Even so, convective trends across the area will be monitored closely. ..Mosier/Hart.. 05/31/2017
  5. Seems like it should be out of here prior to the puck drop.

  7. Mesoscale Discussion 0621 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1059 AM CDT Mon May 01 2017 Areas affected...eastern Ohio...West Virginia through western Pennsylvania Concerning...Severe potential...Watch likely Valid 011559Z - 011800Z Probability of Watch Issuance...95 percent SUMMARY...Thunderstorms are expected to undergo a gradual increase in coverage and intensity into the afternoon from eastern portions of Ohio through West Virginia into western Pennsylvania. Damaging wind and a few tornadoes will be the main threats. A tornado watch will likely be needed by 17Z. DISCUSSION...As of mid day storms have shown some increase in intensity and organization over southeast OH. This activity is developing along a cold front that stretches from the Great Lakes through eastern OH into eastern KY. The downstream warm sector is only weakly capped but marginally unstable. However trends in visible imagery show numerous cloud breaks, and the boundary layer should undergo destabilization next few hours supporting 500-1000 J/kg MLCAPE. Very strong deep layer winds will persist in this region as a mid-level jet coupled with a strong low-level jet within eastern periphery of the upper low circulation shifts northeast during the day. Latest VWP data show 70 kt surface to 6 km shear and large 0-1 km hodographs. This high shear-low CAPE environment will support organized structures with mixed storm modes including bowing line segments and supercells as activity develops east through the destabilizing warm sector. ..Dial/Grams.. 05/01/2017
