Until I peeked at yesterday’s SPC Day 3 this setup had escaped my notice. Now it’s on my personal radar and I may have to roll out the driveway before noon tomorrow to head east toward the Virginia Piedmont. Not only is this supercell composite map looking decent the significant tornado parameter is decent for this time of year as well.

Of course this is another one of those low CAPE/high shear setups in which there is plenty of shear to create supercells and some rotation IF updrafts can punch upward. That may require forcing by the cold front itself but maybe I can find a cell ahead of the boundary that is worthy of chasing. Keeping an eye on this!
