Areas affected...Eastern Great Lakes

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

Valid 291736Z - 291900Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

SUMMARY...A couple storms will pose a risk for isolated damaging
wind gusts this afternoon. A weather watch will likely not be

DISCUSSION...A broad upper low over southern Canada is rotating
rotating through the Great Lakes supporting scattered shower and
thunderstorm development near the international border. A plume of
temperatures and dewpoints in the 80s and mid 60s F respectively are
contributing to 500-1000 J/kg of MLCAPE despite relatively weak
mid-level lapse rates. Recently, radar and satellite data have shown
storms starting to intensify across portions of southwestern New
York into portions of northeastern Ohio. 30-35 kt of effective shear
should support a few multi-cell clusters capable of damaging wind
gusts given steep low-level lapse rates around 8 C/km. Storm
coverage is expected to remain relatively low given the shallow
nature of surface moisture and weak destabilization. Storms moving
east are expected to weaken as they interact with drier air from a
previous frontal passage towards eastern New York and Pennsylvania.
Conditions will be monitored, though uncertainty in severity and
coverage suggests a weather watch is unlikely.
