1218 PM CDT Sat Aug 22 2020

Areas affected...Portions of southern Maine into central and
southern New Hampshire...southern Vermont...Massachusetts

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

Valid 221718Z - 221845Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

SUMMARY...A couple instances of damaging gusts and perhaps severe
hail may accompany the stronger storms. The isolated severe threat
may continue into the late-afternoon hours.

DISCUSSION...Relatively scattered thunderstorm development has been
underway for the past couple of hours across portions of eastern New
England, with a discrete supercell noted along the Carroll/Strafford
County NH border. These storms are currently progressing along a
corridor 40 knots effective bulk shear, mainly driven by speed shear
in the 850-500 mb layer (per latest Mesoanalysis), with relatively
straight hodographs depicted by the latest RAP forecast soundings.
Relatively rich moisture in the sfc-850 mb layer is currently
promoting 1000 J/kg MLCAPE. As such, a short-term severe threat will
continue with the Carroll/Strafford County storm until it moves
offshore. Thereafter, any storms that can traverse the
aforementioned region of stronger CAPE/shear overlap may also
produce a few damaging gusts in addition to a couple severe
hailstones over the next few hours. This includes storms developing
in east-central New York, which are expected to progress into
western MA and southern VT over the next couple of hours.
