MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1319
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0331 PM CDT TUE JUL 07 2015

AREAS AFFECTED...CNTRL APPALACHIANS...LOWER GREAT LAKES

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH UNLIKELY

VALID 072031Z - 072300Z

PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...20 PERCENT

SUMMARY...A MARGINAL SEVERE THREAT IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE CNTRL
APPALACHIAN MTNS AND IN THE LOWER GREAT LAKES REGION THIS AFTERNOON.
STRONG GUSTY WINDS WILL BE POSSIBLE AS CELLS INITIATE AND INTENSIFY
OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS. WW ISSUANCE APPEARS UNLIKELY DUE TO THE
MARGINAL NATURE OF THE THREAT.

DISCUSSION...LATEST SFC ANALYSIS SHOWS A WELL-DEFINED COLD FRONT
LOCATED FROM CNTRL IND NEWD TO LAKE ERIE. AHEAD OF THE FRONT...AN
AXIS OF LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE IS PRESENT WHERE SFC DEWPOINTS ARE
GENERALLY IN THE MID 60S TO LOWER 70S F. AS SFC TEMPS HAVE WARMED
INTO THE 80S F ALONG THE MOIST AXIS...MODERATE INSTABILITY HAS
DEVELOPED WITH MLCAPE VALUES ESTIMATED IN THE 1000 TO 1500 J/KG
RANGE. IN RESPONSE...SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS HAVE INCREASED IN
COVERAGE ALONG THE CORRIDOR OF MODERATE INSTABILITY FROM ERN KY
NNEWD INTO WRN PA AND WRN NY. REGIONAL WSR-88D VWPS ALONG THIS
CORRIDOR SHOW UNIDIRECTIONAL WIND PROFILES WITH 25 TO 35 KT OF WSWLY
FLOW IN THE LOW TO MID-LEVELS...RESULTING IN ABOUT 20 KT OF 0-6 KM
SHEAR. THIS MAY BE ENOUGH FOR MARGINALLY SEVERE WIND GUSTS WITH
MULTICELLS THAT HAVE ACCESS TO LOCALLY MAXIMIZED INSTABILITY LATE
THIS AFTERNOON.
