...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS OVER PORTIONS OF
THE EASTERN CAROLINAS...

...SUMMARY...
A line of storms will continue moving slowly eastward toward/off the
Carolina coast this evening, with a few strong to locally severe
storms embedded therein over the next couple of hours.

...Eastern Carolinas...
A band of locally vigorous storms -- still capable of a local/brief
severe event -- continues moving slowly east toward the North
Carolina coast early this evening.  The evening MHX (Morehead City
NC) RAOB depicts a very moist boundary layer, supporting
moderate/deep CAPE.  However, despite the semi-organized nature of
the convective line, relatively modest flow aloft revealed by the
RAOB and area VWPs suggests only a local/isolated risk for wind
gusts reaching severe levels this evening, prior to storms moving
offshore.

...Elsewhere...
A few strong storms -- which may locally attain severe levels --
will remain possible this evening over portions of the New
Mexico/Arizona vicinity, as ascent associated with a slow-moving
upper trough persists over the area.  A couple of strong to perhaps
briefly severe storms may also persist for the next 1-2 hours from
East Texas eastward into the Southeast, in the vicinity of a
lingering west-to-east baroclinic zone.
