DAY 4-8 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0357 AM CST SAT JAN 28 2012

VALID 311200Z - 051200Z

THE MEDIUM RANGE MODELS BEGIN THE DAY 4 TO 8 PERIOD WITH WEST TO
SOUTHWEST FLOW OVER MUCH OF THE CONUS. BOTH THE ECMWF AND GFS
DEVELOP AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH OVER THE SWRN STATES ON TUESDAY/DAY 4.
AHEAD OF THIS SYSTEM ON TUESDAY...LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE IS FORECAST TO
RETURN NWD ONTO THE TX COASTAL PLAINS AND INTO THE LOWER TO MID-MS
VALLEY. THUNDERSTORMS COULD DEVELOP FROM THE TX COAST EWD ACROSS THE
GULF COAST STATES FROM WEDNESDAY/DAY 5 INTO THURSDAY/DAY 6 AS THE
UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH APPROACHES FROM THE WEST. ALTHOUGH THE TIMING OF
THE UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH IS STILL QUESTIONABLE...THE MODELS MOVE THE
SYSTEM EWD ACROSS THE SRN PLAINS AND CNTRL GULF COAST STATES ON
FRIDAY/DAY 7 AND SATURDAY/DAY 8 SUGGESTING THE THREAT FOR CONVECTION
WOULD SHIFT EWD INTO THE ERN GULF COAST STATES. FORECAST INSTABILITY
IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN WEAK ALONG THE GULF COAST IN THE MID TO LATE
WEEK TIME-FRAME. FOR THIS REASON...ANY SEVERE THREAT WOULD LIKELY BE
MARGINAL AND NO ENHANCED SEVERE THREAT AREA IS FORECAST ATTM.

Yes...and the SPC is quick to mention them in the Day 4-8 outlooks...hence why I posted their thoughts not being sold on anything.

I meant where things looked flat about 6 days out, and then things changed in the direction of a severe weather outbreak. I may have understood your post wrong.

DAY 4-8 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK

VALID 011200Z - 061200Z

THE MEDIUM RANGE MODELS BEGIN THE DAY 4 TO 8 PERIOD WITH AN
UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH IN THE CNTRL STATES ON WEDNESDAY/DAY 4. THE ECMWF
AND GFS DIVERGE QUICKLY WITH THEIR SOLUTIONS WITH THE ECMWF MOVING
THE SYSTEM EWD INTO THE MS VALLEY WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND INTO THE
APPALACHIAN MTNS ON THURSDAY. THE GFS IS LESS AMPLIFIED WITH THE
WAVE AND IS ABOUT 12 HOURS SLOWER BUT BOTH MODELS DEVELOP
THUNDERSTORMS IN THE CNTRL GULF COAST STATES AS THE SYSTEM MOVES
ACROSS. AT THIS POINT...PREFER THE ECMWF WHICH DEVELOPS
THUNDERSTORMS IN THE LOWER TO MID MS VALLEY LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND
MOVES THE STORMS EWD ACROSS THE OH AND TN VALLEYS ON THURSDAY/DAY 5.
AFTER THE SYSTEM EXITS THE ERN SEABOARD ON THURSDAY NIGHT...THE
MODELS DEVELOP A LARGE UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH ACROSS THE CNTRL AND ERN
STATES ON FRIDAY/DAY 6. THUNDERSTORMS COULD DEVELOP ONCE AGAIN IN
THE ERN GULF COAST STATES TO THE EAST OF THE TROUGH AXIS BUT
UNCERTAINTY IS HIGH CONCERNING THIS SCENARIO AND THROUGHOUT THE
UPCOMING WEEK. FOR THIS REASON...WILL NOT INCLUDE AN ENHANCED SEVERE
THREAT AREA IN THE DAY 4 TO 8 PERIOD.

Is the CAPE not working? It doesn't show anything when I try it. The Shear works, the MSL works.

I think this is the right thread.
Storm looks to start off positively tilted but seems to quickly try and go to a negative tilt, per GFS.

Negative tilt.
The horrible storms the South experienced earlier this month were from a negative tilted storm.

DAY 3 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0224 AM CST MON JAN 30 2012

VALID 011200Z - 021200Z

A SHORTWAVE TROUGH IS FORECAST TO MOVE EWD INTO THE SRN PLAINS AND
ARKLATEX WEDNESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY NIGHT. HOWEVER...MODEL FORECASTS
ARE QUITE DIFFERENT ON THE AMPLITUDE AND SPEED OF THE TROUGH. THE
NAM IS THE SLOWEST WITH THE WAVE ALLOWING FOR LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE TO
RETURN NWD ACROSS MUCH OF CNTRL AND EAST TX. THE GFS AND ECMWF ARE
FASTER WITH THE WAVE AND CONFINE MOISTURE RETURN TO EAST TX AND LA.
THE MODEL SOLUTIONS DO AGREE THAT CONVECTION WILL INITIATE AHEAD OF
THE AXIS OF THE SHORTWAVE TROUGH ON THE NRN EDGE OF THE MOIST AXIS
WEDNESDAY EVENING. FORECAST SOUNDINGS IN NE TX WEDNESDAY EVENING
SUGGEST THAT INSTABILITY WILL BE SUFFICIENT FOR HAIL WITH MUCAPE
VALUES OF 1000 TO 1500 J/KG. IF ELEVATED THUNDERSTORMS CAN INITIATE
ACROSS NE TX WEDNESDAY EVENING...THEN A THREAT FOR HAIL COULD EXIST.
THE MAIN PROBLEM IS THE DIFFERENCE IN MODEL SOLUTIONS. AT THIS
POINT...HAVE TAKEN A COMPROMISE BETWEEN THE GFS/ECMWF AND NAM
SOLUTIONS. MUCH UNCERTAINTY EXISTS AT THIS POINT AND LATER RUNS WILL
HELP CLARIFY THE POTENTIAL FOR A HAIL SCENARIO.

HIGH LATE IN THE WEEK CONCERNING THE POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE STORMS.
MORE CERTAINTY EXISTS FOR A SEVERE THREAT IN THE SRN PLAINS AND

Looks like the date needs changed to start tomorrow and may need extended a day or so by the Day 4-8 outlook. Like hearing the Mid-Mississippi valley but am sure I'm too far north to benefit.

THE MEDIUM RANGE MODELS BEGIN THE DAY 4 TO 8 PERIOD WITH A
NEGATIVELY-TILTED UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH OVER THE SRN ROCKIES AND AN
EJECTING MID-LEVEL JET ACROSS THE SRN PLAINS. THE MODELS COUPLE THE
LOW AND MID-LEVEL JET ACROSS THE SRN PLAINS ON FRIDAY/DAY 4 AS A

ASCENT...ADEQUATE INSTABILITY AND MODERATE TO STRONG DEEP LAYER
SHEAR SHOULD BE SUFFICIENT FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS IN PARTS OF EAST

INCREASES AS THE MODELS MOVE THE MOIST SECTOR SEWD INTO THE GULF
COAST STATES. STRONG THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE LOWER
TO MID-MS VALLEY EARLY ON SATURDAY/DAY 5 AND IN THE CNTRL GULF COAST
STATES SATURDAY AFTERNOON. ON SUNDAY/DAY 6 AND MONDAY/DAY 7...THE
MODELS MOVE A COLD FRONT ACROSS THE SERN STATES WHERE THUNDERSTORMS
MAY DEVELOP ALONG THE BOUNDARY BUT UNCERTAINTY IS QUITE HIGH BY
EARLY NEXT WEEK. AT THIS POINT...IT APPEARS THAT A SLIGHT RISK AREA
MAY BE NEEDED ACROSS PARTS OF EAST AND NORTH TX ON FRIDAY/DAY 4 BUT
WILL WAIT UNTIL THE DAY 3 OUTLOOK IN ORDER TO GET A BETTER HANDLE ON
THE TIMING OF THE SYSTEM.
