Areas affected...eastern Pennsylvania...northern New
Jersey...southern New York

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

Valid 021053Z - 021330Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

SUMMARY...Locally severe wind gusts are possible over northeast
Pennsylvania into northern New Jersey this morning. A brief tornado
is possible if the storm cluster continues to intensify.

DISCUSSION...Storms over eastern PA have gradually intensified over
the past hour, acquiring broad rotation as they translate
east/northeast along the lifting warm front. Surface analysis shows
72 to 74 F dewpoints which is contributing to around 1000 J/kg
SBCAPE.
Area VWPs and objective analysis show 0-1 SRH between 100-150 m2/s2,
which is typically sufficient for a low-end tornado risk.

Damaging wind gusts appear possible with this isolated storm
cluster. Should the system continue to get better organized, further
tightening of the circulation may occur, with a brief tornado
possible. However, this would appear most likely later today when
heating occurs and boundary layer lapse rates become more favorable.
