MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1899
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
1220 PM CDT WED OCT 15 2014

AREAS AFFECTED...CNTRL MD INTO SERN PA

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY

VALID 151720Z - 151945Z

PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...20 PERCENT

SUMMARY...AN ISOLATED STRONG WIND GUST OR BRIEF/WEAK TORNADO CANNOT
BE RULED OUT WITH STORMS AS THEY DEVELOP NWD FROM MD INTO SERN PA.

DISCUSSION...AN ISOLATED STRONG CELL WITH SUBSTANTIAL VERTICAL
DEVELOPMENT CONTINUES TO PROPAGATE NWD ALONG A N-S ORIENTED BOUNDARY
WHICH EXTENDS INTO PA AND LINKS WITH AN EXISTING FRONT ACROSS ERN PA
WHICH CURRENTLY SEPARATES THE MORE MOIST/UNSTABLE AIR TO THE SE.

THIS PARTICULAR STORM HAS HAD A PERSISTENT AND BROAD CIRCULATION
WITH IT...BUT NOTHING PARTICULARLY STRONG OR TIGHT PROBABLY DUE TO
WEAK LOW-LEVEL BUOYANCY/ACCELERATION. WHILE DEEP-LAYER FLOW IS
STRONG ABOVE THE GROUND...MOST OF THE SHEAR IS RELEGATED TO THE
NEAR-SURFACE LAYER AND OTHER CELLS AWAY FROM THE OUTFLOW BOUNDARY
HAVE SHOWN LITTLE IF ANY SHEAR. THEREFORE...ANY WIND/TOR THREAT IS
EXPECTED TO BE BRIEF...SHORT-LIVED AND ISOLATED...AND A WATCH IS NOT
EXPECTED.
