Possible chase day Tuesday.
BOUNDARY LAYER DEWPOINTS IN THE 50S TO LOWER 60S WILL COINCIDE WITH
EML/STEEP LAPSE RATE PLUME WITH A MODERATELY UNSTABLE AIR MASS
DEVELOPING BY AFTERNOON AHEAD OF COLD FRONT. THE COMBINATION OF
FRONTAL ASCENT AND DEEP-LAYER FORCING ASSOCIATED WITH SLOW-MOVING
VORTICITY MAXIMUM MOVING ACROSS THE REGION SHOULD FOSTER SCATTERED
TO NUMEROUS TSTMS ALONG BOUNDARY THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING
HOURS. WHILE ENVIRONMENT WILL REMAIN ONLY MARGINALLY SHEARED...THE
STRONGER STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF DAMAGING WINDS AND HAIL GIVEN THE
PRESENCE OF THE STEEP LAPSE RATES AND ANTICIPATED EVOLUTION TO LINE
SEGMENTS OR A LINEAR CONVECTIVE SYSTEM.
