…THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS TONIGHT ACROSS THE
OUTER AND INNER BANKS VICINITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AND PERHAPS
ADJACENT PORTIONS OF THE VIRGINIA TIDEWATER…
The risk for a couple of additional tornadoes continues tonight,
mainly across the Outer and Inner Banks vicinity of North Carolina.
Otherwise, strong storms may continue to impact much of Oregon into
this evening, accompanied by some risk for severe wind and hail.
…01Z Outlook Update…
…South Atlantic Coast…
Although the center of Hurricane Dorian is just now reaching the
southern North Carolina coastal vicinity, south of Wilmington,
tropical boundary layer air, characterized by temperatures in the
lower 80s F and dew points in the upper 70s, is now largely confined
to the North Carolina Outer Banks vicinity into portions of the
Inner Banks. This environment appears to offer the best support for
any appreciable continuing risk for occasional tornado development,
as outer convective bands pivot across this region, in the presence
of strong low-level shear. This could linger into the 09-12Z time
frame, before shifting east of southern Mid Atlantic coastal areas,
ahead of the gradually northeastward accelerating center of Dorian.
Widespread convection and associated outflow appears to be in the
process of stabilizing the environment, but a couple of strong
storms may continue to pose at least some risk for severe wind and
hail into the 02-04Z time frame.
