Models suggest interesting HSLC situation Tues Night/Early Wednesday

The NAM continues to depict the potential for  a classic HSLC/QLCS/”broken-S” setup beginning across the western Carolinas during the evening, progressing across the remainder of the Carolinas/mid-Atlantic overnight. However, if anything, the model seems to have backed away ever so slightly from the CAPE values it was forecasting 36 hours ago. Nevertheless, it still looks as if it could be a LONG night for operational forecasters across the region.
