Mesoscale Discussion 2336
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0853 PM CST Sun Dec 17 2023

Areas affected...portions of extreme eastern North Carolina

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch likely 

Valid 180253Z - 180400Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...95 percent

SUMMARY...A brief tornado cannot be ruled out with any storms along
the NC coast that can ingest surface-based buoyancy. A Tornado Watch
is being issued.

DISCUSSION...A surface low continues to approach the NC/SC
coastline, with an effective warm front established roughly near the
NC shore. Regional VADs depict impressively curved/enlarged
hodographs over extreme eastern North Carolina. The effective warm
front and associated marginally buoyant surface-based parcels have
struggled to move far inland over the last several hours, limiting
severe potential. However, mid 60s to near 70 F surface dewpoints
reside along the shore, and it is possible that this better moisture
may move further inland of ongoing storms over the next couple of
hours. Should this occur, a damaging gust or brief tornado may
develop with any of the stronger storms. Given the impressive shear
profiles, a new Tornado Watch is being issued given
destabilization/convective trends that are possible over the next
few hours.
