    for Environmental Prediction, and something of an expert in mesoscale severe weather phenomena, says of the model forecasts for tomorrow in the mid-Atlantic states:  "I've never seen such strong supercell indices in our area before."  The tornado threat will be significant east of the mts. from VA to NYC and beyond.  VERY VERY strong low pressure system for June will move just north of MD/southern PA/NJ/NYC area tomorrow with lots of juicy air around.  If there is cloudiness over us from today's convection, that may limit how bad things can get as things won't warm up and destabilize as much.  But if we have full sun the first half of the day, watch your back!  NOAA Wx Radio is a good idea.

      this morning. Once I translated I about screamed holy shit!

      A RIBBON OF VERY IMPRESSIVE AND NOT OFTEN SEEN IN THIS AREA 0-1KM
      EHIS OF 4M2/S2 OR GREATER DEVELOP ACROSS THE LOWER SUSQ
      (they've backed it down to "Greater than 2")

      someone in the Mid-Atlantic is going to get shellacked tomorrow afternoon and evening. This is could be an outbreak that we haven't seen in some time (not counting last year). I'm thinking similar to this one

      (I slept through that storm that blew through my town after trying to stay up to midnight for it. heh. it blew through at 1215)
