DAY 4-8 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0328 AM CDT SAT MAR 31 2012

VALID 031200Z - 081200Z

...DISCUSSION...
AN UPPER LOW THAT IS BEING HANDLED POORLY BY THE MODELS IS FORECAST
TO BE OVER THE SRN PLAINS ON TUE/D4...AND SHOULD CONTINUE DRIFTING
EWD INTO THE LOWER OR MIDDLE MS VALLEY BY WED/D5. NUMEROUS
THUNDERSTORMS...SOME SEVERE...ARE PROBABLE...ALTHOUGH THIS SYSTEM
WILL NOT RESULT IN A SIGNIFICANT OUTBREAK. STILL...HAIL AND WIND
GUSTS WILL BE LIKELY...MAINLY FROM ERN TX INTO ERN OK...AR...AND LA
ON D4...SPREADING EWD PERHAPS INTO THE TN VALLEY AND GULF COAST
STATES ON D5. WILL DEFER TO LATER OUTLOOKS AS PREDICTABILITY
INCREASES.

THIS LOW WILL OTHERWISE BE NESTLED WITH A LARGER SCALE UPPER
RIDGE...WITH TROUGHS OVER THE NERN AND NWRN CONUS. THE NEXT WRN
TROUGH WILL LIKELY HAVE MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY TO WORK WITH AS A
COLD FRONT WITH CP AIR MASS STALLS NEAR THE GULF COAST D5/D6.
HOWEVER...MODEL DEPICTIONS ARE SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT.

I've been on a short vacation so my memory may be jogged... but did this event go from a Day5 30% to a Day3 See Text?

TEMPERATURE-DEWPOINT SPREADS...THE EXPECTATION IS THAT VERY LARGE
HAIL AND DAMAGING WIND GUSTS WILL BE THE PRIMARY HAZARDS.
BY 03/00-03Z...BOTH LOW AND DEEP-LAYER SHEAR ARE FORECAST TO
STRENGTHEN...AND THE POTENTIAL FOR TORNADOES WILL INCREASE WITH
STORMS THAT REMAIN MORE DISCRETE. THUS...CONDITIONS WILL BE
MONITORED FOR A POSSIBLE UPGRADE TO A TORNADO WATCH LATER THIS
EVENING.

AVIATION...A FEW SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WITH HAIL SURFACE AND ALOFT
TO 3 INCHES. EXTREME TURBULENCE AND SURFACE WIND GUSTS TO 60

DAY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0100 AM CDT TUE APR 03 2012

VALID 031200Z - 041200Z

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS ACROSS CENTRAL/ERN TX...MUCH OF
OK...SERN KS...WRN AR AND SWRN MO...

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS ACROSS THE MID MS AND OH
VALLEYS...

...SYNOPSIS...
CLOSED LOW CENTERED OVER NM...PER WATER VAPOR IMAGERY...WILL REMAIN
CUTOFF FROM A MORE AMPLIFIED NRN STREAM THIS FORECAST PERIOD.
DESPITE IT BEING CUTOFF...THIS SYSTEM WILL BE PROGRESSIVE SHIFTING
SLOWLY ENEWD REACHING THE TX PANHANDLE INTO SERN CO/SWRN KS REGION
BY 12Z WEDNESDAY. A SHORTWAVE TROUGH...CURRENTLY TOPPING THE UPPER
RIDGE OVER CENTRAL CANADA...IS EXPECTED TO TRACK SEWD INTO ONTARIO/
QUEBEC WITH HEIGHT FALLS GLANCING THE OH VALLEY REGION.

MEANWHILE...THE MIDLEVEL CIRCULATION AND NRN EXTENT OF THE
ASSOCIATED TROUGH THAT MOVED THROUGH E TX/LOWER MS VALLEY MONDAY IS
EXPECTED TO TRACK NEWD THROUGH THE MID MS VALLEY AND ACROSS THE OH
VALLEY. THE SRN EXTENT OF THIS SAME TROUGH SHOULD BE WEAKER AS IT
MOVES EWD THROUGH THE CENTRAL GULF COAST STATES...REACHING GA/NRN FL
BY 12Z WEDNESDAY.

AT THE SURFACE...A COLD FRONT WILL EXTEND SWWD FROM A WEAK LOW OVER
THE UPPER MS VALLEY TO A WEAK LOW IN NWRN TX. A PACIFIC FRONT SHOULD
EXTEND SWD FROM THE TX LOW THROUGH WEST CENTRAL AND SWRN TX.
MEANWHILE...A WARM FRONT WILL STRETCH FROM THE UPPER MS VALLEY
REGION SEWD THROUGH CENTRAL IL...KY TO THE CAROLINAS THIS MORNING.

...SRN PLAINS...
FORCING FOR ASCENT ATTENDANT TO A COUPLE OF SHORTWAVE TROUGHS MOVING
THROUGH THE BASE OF THE NM CLOSED LOW AND TRANSLATING
NEGATIVELY-TILTED THROUGH THE ERN SEMI-CIRCLE OF THE LOW THIS
AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT...RESPECTIVELY...WILL SUPPORT TSTM
DEVELOPMENT...WITHIN A MODERATELY UNSTABLE ENVIRONMENT. CLOUDINESS
ATTENDANT TO ONGOING SHOWER/TSTMS AT 12Z TODAY ACROSS PARTS OF OK
SWD INTO TX MAY LIMIT STRONGER SURFACE HEATING. HOWEVER...GIVEN
WEAK CAPPING...BREAKS IN THE CLOUDS SHOULD PROVE SUFFICIENT FOR
DESTABILIZATION AS STEEP MIDLEVEL LAPSE RATES /AROUND 8 C PER KM/
AND PW VALUES IN EXCESS OF 1 INCH CONTRIBUTE TO AFTERNOON MLCAPE OF
2000-3000 J/KG ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE PACIFIC COLD FRONT.

IN THE WAKE OF MORNING SHOWERS/TSTMS...NEW TSTM DEVELOPMENT IS
EXPECTED BY AFTERNOON ALONG THE COLD FRONT FROM WRN/CENTRAL OK SWD
THROUGH NRN AND CENTRAL TX. 50-60 KT SWLY MIDLEVEL WINDS WILL
SPREAD ACROSS THE SRN PLAINS AS THE CLOSED LOW SHIFTS ENEWD. GIVEN
THE DEGREE OF INSTABILITY AND STRENGTHENING EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR UP
TO 40-50 KT ACROSS THE PACIFIC FRONT/WARM SECTOR...ORGANIZED STORMS
WILL BE LIKELY. SOME DISCRETE STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE AS SHEAR
VECTORS WILL BE ORIENTED ACROSS THE FRONT. DESPITE NEARLY
UNIDIRECTIONAL...SLY DEEP LAYER WIND FIELDS...SOME LOW LEVEL
HODOGRAPH CURVATURE SUGGESTS A TORNADO THREAT IS POSSIBLE. HAIL...
SOME VERY LARGE...IS EXPECTED ACROSS MUCH OF THE SRN PLAINS GIVEN
THE STEEP MIDLEVEL LAPSE RATES AND LARGE AMOUNTS OF INSTABILITY.
DAMAGING WINDS CAN ALSO BE EXPECTED.

THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TUESDAY EVENING/
NIGHT INTO EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING AS AN ONGOING LINE OF STORMS
ADVANCES EWD...REACHING SWRN MO/WRN AR TO E TX BY 12Z WEDNESDAY.
MODERATE INSTABILITY AND CONTINUED STRONG DEEP LAYER SHEAR WITH
VECTORS BECOMING ORIENTED MORE PARALLEL TO THE FRONT WILL TEND TO
FAVOR LINEAR ORGANIZATION VERSUS DISCRETE STORMS AFTER DARK.

...MID MS/OH VALLEYS...
THE IL/KY PORTION OF THE WARM FRONT WILL SHIFT EWD THROUGH THE OH
VALLEY TODAY AS THE UPPER MS VALLEY SURFACE LOW TRACKS ESEWD TOWARD
ERN OH/WRN PA BY LATE IN THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE COMBINATION OF
STRONG SURFACE HEATING WITHIN A STEEP LAPSE RATE ENVIRONMENT AND LOW
LEVEL MOISTURE ADVECTION E/NEWD THROUGH THE OH VALLEY WILL RESULT IN
MODERATE INSTABILITY BY THIS AFTERNOON. DEEP LAYER SHEAR IS
EXPECTED TO REMAIN RATHER WEAK THROUGH THE PERIOD RESULTING IN
PULSE-TYPE STORMS. SUFFICIENT DESTABILIZATION AND FORCING FOR
ASCENT ATTENDANT TO WEAK HEIGHT FALLS AND THE WEAK MIDLEVEL IMPULSE
TRACKING THROUGH THIS REGION TODAY SHOULD RESULT IN TSTM DEVELOPMENT
ACROSS THE WARM SECTOR. INITIAL ACTIVITY SHOULD BE CONFINED TO THE
MID MS/LOWER OH VALLEYS...WITH ACTIVITY SPREADING INTO THE UPPER OH
VALLEY THIS EVENING. THE DEGREE OF INSTABILITY AND STEEP LAPSE
RATES SUGGEST HAIL AND DAMAGING WIND GUSTS WILL BE POSSIBLE. IN
ADDITION...THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR ONE OR MORE MCSS...WITH AN
ATTENDANT THREAT FOR HAIL AND STRONG WIND GUSTS...TO DEVELOP AND
TRACK ESEWD THROUGH THE OH VALLEY TUESDAY NIGHT AS THE COLD FRONT
ADVANCES SWD. THUS...GIVEN THESE FACTORS...A SLIGHT RISK AREA HAS
BEEN INTRODUCED FROM PARTS OF THE MID MS VALLEY THROUGH MUCH OF THE
OH VALLEY WITH THIS OUTLOOK ISSUANCE.

...PARTS OF WRN AND CENTRAL KS...
ALTHOUGH INSTABILITY WILL BE WEAKER WITH NNWWD EXTENT INTO THIS
REGION TODAY...ELEVATED TSTMS WILL BE POSSIBLE AS THE LEADING EDGE
OF DPVA/FORCED ASCENT IMMEDIATELY DOWNSTREAM OF THE CLOSED LOW
SPREAD NEWD. STEEP MIDLEVEL LAPSE RATES SUGGEST MARGINALLY SEVERE
HAIL WILL BE POSSIBLE.
