Today is a Storm Action Day
The Storm Prediction Center did issue a mesoscale (small area) moderate risk of severe weather for a portion of the Mid Atlantic area today. This was the result of an increased tornado threat.
There are pockets of shearing among strong instability values in the Mid Atlantic, leading to an increased tornado risk with storms that have formed and are forming. Currently, they are individual cells, but they do appear to be bonding, which would essentially cut out a big component of the supercell potential with this severe weather event.
I want to say i'm sorry about not posting yesterday- I was pretty busy, and will be tonight. I am trying hard to nail down things that I will issue on a daily basis (example: Chase Spot, storm outlook, etc.), and that should be implemented tomorrow.
