Areas affected...Central and northern Pennsylvania into southern New
York and southwest New England

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch likely

Valid 151543Z - 151815Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...95 percent

SUMMARY...Severe storms are likely to develop over the next several
hours from central and northern Pennsylvania into southern New York,
continuing into southern New England by late afternoon. Severe wind
and hail are likely across all areas, with a few tornadoes possible
mainly from northeast Pennsylvania into southern New England. As
such, one or more severe and/or tornado watches will be needed

DISCUSSION...Surface analysis shows a cold front across northwest PA
into OH, with a pre-frontal trough across central NY into central
PA. A progressive area of early-day thunderstorms has produced
outflow across much of southern NY to near the northern PA border.

Satellite imagery shows strong heating is occurring across the warm
sector, with a plume of mid to upper 60s F dewpoints spreading north
across PA and NJ, and likely into southern NY later today. In
addition, the aforementioned outflow will continue to modify, while
likely maintaining some degree of enhanced low-level wind shear this

Thunderstorms currently exist along the cold front from western PA
into western NY, and should continue a gradual increase in intensity
as the air mass destabilizes to the east. In addition to these
storms, other storms are expected to form near the surface trough,
and perhaps atop the old outflow boundary. Deep-layer shear will
favor cellular activity away from the cold front, while a mixed
storm mode including bows or embedded supercells are possible along
the front. Strong heating and steep lapse rates aloft will favor
large hail, with an increasing damaging wind by the time storms
organize into a line. Any cellular activity will be capable of large
hail, perhaps very large, along with a few tornadoes where low-level
shear is maximized.
