Areas affected...West Virginia and far southwest Virginia.

Concerning...Severe Thunderstorm Watch 70...

Valid 150031Z - 150130Z

The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 70
continues.

SUMMARY...A damaging wind threat continues across severe
thunderstorm watch 70.

DISCUSSION...Convection has strengthened across West Virginia in the
last 30 minutes with several stronger cores now along with a few
bowing segments. This can likely be attributed to the stronger deep
layer ascent, as well as a strengthening low-level jet. This
strengthening low-level jet can be seen on the RLX VWP as winds have
increased 20 knots between 1 and 2 km in the last hour. The stronger
storms are currently in the northern half of the watch, and this
trend is expected to continue based on the orientation of the line
and the presence of the stronger deep layer ascent.
