Severe thunderstorms are not forecast through early Monday.
As a shortwave trough races east across the Saint Lawrence Valley,
low-level convergence will further weaken along the trailing cold
front in far southeast VA and eastern NC. As such, potential for
thunderstorms and any attendant severe threat is negligible this

A quasi-stationary front across southern GA to the eastern FL
Panhandle will slowly advance northwest as a weak warm front.
Guidance is fairly consistent in simulating isolated to scattered
convection along and north of the advancing front tonight as
convergence and isentropic ascent increase. A modest combination of
mid-level lapse rates, elevated buoyancy, and effective bulk shear
may be adequate for small hail in the more robust updrafts. The
setup does not appear to warrant a highlight for marginally severe
