We’re heading to the Danville VA vicinity this evening (Thursday) with admittedly slim hopes of catching a pre-frontal cell firing in northern NC and moving northward.  A couple of short range models hold out hope for a discrete cell or two to fire.  The main problem we’ll have is a lack of daylight as darkness may very well set in before convection reaches us.  Of course we can continue southward into NC if the radar shows something building down there but limited daylight will still plague us.

Blast these night-time cold frontal passages!
