GFS/GGEM/Euro all showing a clipper towards the end of next week. GFS is strongest with it while GGEM/Euro are on the weaker side.

18z GFS is really jacked up with a band of 6-12 " from West and North IN up to MI.

Everything from E IA eastward is from this clipper.

This storm will start the pattern change to colder. The 12z GFS/GGEM showed the colder air catching up to the precip as it's crossing MI/IN/OH and changing the backside to snow. GGEM was a little more bullish. We'll see if the 12z Euro does this too.

Day 5 area has been highlighted in the central plains and the mention of possible severe for the OV to southern plains on day 6.

Day 4-8 Convective Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0332 AM CDT Tue Oct 10 2017

Valid 131200Z - 181200Z

...Friday/Day 4 and Saturday/Day 5...
The medium range models including the ECMWF, GFS, Canadian and UKMet
maintain a southwest mid-level flow pattern across much of the U.S.
on Friday. The models are forecasting moisture return to take place
from the southern Plains into the lower Missouri Valley.
Thunderstorm development will be possible Friday night along the
northern edge of a moist air mass from the southern High Plains
northeastward into the mid to upper Mississippi Valley. Although
this activity may be elevated in nature, hail will be possible with
the stronger cells. On Saturday, the models move the upper-level
trough eastward but vary on the timing of the system with the ECMWF
considerably slower than the other three solutions. The three faster
solutions of the GFS, Canadian and UKMET, and to a lesser degree,
the ECMWF, would favor a severe threat in the central Plains and mid
Missouri Valley Saturday evening into the overnight. Confidence is
great enough to add a 15 percent contour from central Kansas into
southern Iowa.

...Sunday/Day 6 to Tuesday/Day 8...
On Sunday, model spread is significant concerning the movement of a
central U.S. upper-level trough. The models are in better agreement
concerning a cold front that is forecast to move southeastward into
the Ohio Valley extending southwestward into the southern Plains.
Thunderstorms associated with a marginal severe threat will be
possible along parts of the front Sunday afternoon. On Monday, the
models move the front southeastward into the Southeast where
thunderstorm development will be possible Monday afternoon. The
front continues to move southeastward on Tuesday and could be a
focus for thunderstorm development. Although a more substantial
severe threat can not be ruled out from Sunday to Tuesday, the
probability seems low at this time.

Day 2 Convective Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
1226 PM CDT Thu Oct 05 2017

Valid 061200Z - 071200Z




Scattered severe storms are likely from parts of Kansas and
southeast Colorado south across the Texas Panhandle into eastern New
Mexico during the late afternoon and evening on Friday. Very large
hail, a few tornadoes, and damaging winds will be possible.

A shortwave trough will amplify as it progresses east from the Great
Basin into the central Great Plains through early Saturday. A belt
of strengthening mid-level west-southwesterlies will accompany this
amplification, becoming centered over the southern High Plains to
Lower MO Valley by Friday evening. Lee surface cyclone should deepen
in the Raton Mesa vicinity with a quasi-stationary front extending
northeast across KS into southeast NE. This boundary will accelerate
southeast as a cold front Friday evening as the shortwave trough and
a Pacific cold front ejects onto the Plains.

...Central and southern Great Plains...
Have upgraded to Enhanced risk and expanded/shifted Slight/Marginal
risk areas west/north.

Rich boundary-layer moisture characterized by 60s surface dew points
will reside south of the aforementioned front. Unlike a typical
widespread severe day in the Plains, mid-level lapse rates should
remain modest outside of the central High Plains. As such, diabatic
heating will be necessary to boost buoyancy and as surface
temperatures warm into the 80s, MLCAPE will reach 1000-2000 J/kg.

Mid-level height falls/DCVA will initially overspread the High
Plains portion of the region, aiding in scattered storms developing
near the surface cyclone late afternoon/early evening. Convective
coverage should increase during the evening east along the KS
portion of the front, and south along the impinging Pacific cold
front over eastern NM and northwest TX.

40-50 kt effective shear and increasingly elongated hodographs with
very strong mid/upper-level speed shear will support several
supercells, a couple of which may become long-track/intense in the
southwest KS to northern TX Panhandle vicinity. Significant severe
hail appears to be the primary hazard, especially given the highly
favorable wind profiles in the hail growth zone. A couple-hour
window will also exist for a few tornadoes. However, somewhat veered
and initially moderate low-level winds should be limiting factors to
greater coverage of the tornado threat. Given the strength of the
forcing within the frontal zones, upscale growth into bowing line
segments appears probable within a few hours of initiation, yielding
a predominant mix of severe wind/hail. Towards midnight, storm
intensity should rapidly wane owing to minimal instability east of
the TX Big Country to eastern KS.

Day 4-8 Convective Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0341 AM CDT Fri Sep 15 2017

Valid 181200Z - 231200Z

A large-scale trough will remain anchored across the western half of
the CONUS for much of the extended period, although predictability
of this pattern deteriorates after D6/Wednesday as models deviate
regarding individual impulses migrating through the trough. During
the D4/Monday and D5/Tuesday timeframe, a lee trough will remain
nearly stationary across the central/northern High Plains, with
western troughing resulting in southwesterly flow aloft
overspreading a broad warm sector characterized by 50s to mid 60s F
dewpoints. At least isolated instances of severe risk are expected
during this period across the central and especially northern Great
Plains east of the lee trough given weak to moderate buoyancy and
veering vertical wind profiles. Highest confidence in a
concentrated area of severe weather will occur on D5/Tuesday
afternoon/evening, where convergence along the lee trough (enhanced
by cyclogenesis over northeastern Colorado) fosters scattered
convection across the Dakotas southward into Nebraska amidst
strengthening mid-level flow attendant to the trough. Slight/15%
severe probabilities have been introduced for this (D5) time period,
and may be needed in additional periods in later outlooks given the
generally favorable synoptic pattern.
