Areas affected...Delaware...New Jersey...far eastern Pennsylvania

Concerning...Tornado Watch 416...

Valid 041259Z - 041430Z

The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 416 continues.

SUMMARY...The tornado threat is expected to increase into southern
New Jersey, northern Delaware, and far eastern Pennsylvania over the
next 1-3 hours.

DISCUSSION...An impressive, long-lived arc of supercells just
north/east of the tropical cyclone track continues to rapidly shift
north. Supercells with sporadic couplets/tornadoes currently stretch
from eastern MD/northern DE southeastward, with cells now
approaching coastal southern NJ.

The DIX VWP has shown a substantial increase in low-level shear over
the past couple hours, with 0-1 km SRH quickly approaching 300
m2/s2. Shear values will likely max-out just before the arcing line
of storms arrives later this morning. 

12Z soundings also show impressive low-level CAPE, primarily
concentrated below 500 mb. Although warming aloft will occur with
the approach of the tropical cyclone, areas that experience mid-70 F
dewpoints will maintain a tornado risk.
