DAY 2 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
1226 PM CDT THU APR 12 2012

VALID 131200Z - 141200Z

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS FROM FAR NWRN TX INTO THE MID
MO RIVER VALLEY...

...SYNOPSIS...
A MEAN TROUGH WILL EXIST OVER THE WRN U.S. WITH A LEAD SHORTWAVE
EJECTING NEWD ACROSS THE NRN PLAINS AND INTO THE UPPER MS VALLEY
DURING THE DAY. THIS WILL LEAD TO BRIEFLY RISING HEIGHTS ALOFT OVER
THE CNTRL AND SRN PLAINS DURING THE DAY...IN ADVANCE OF THE MAIN
TROUGH WHICH WILL EMERGE INTO OK AND NM BY SAT MORNING.

AT THE SURFACE...A LOW WILL MOVE FROM CNTRL SD AT 12Z NWD ACROSS ND
WITH THE EJECTING WAVE...WITH FRONT TRAILING SWD FROM ERN NEB INTO
NRN KS AND DRY AIR BEHIND. THIS BOUNDARY WILL WASH OUT OVER CNTRL
KS...MERGING WITH A DRYLINE THAT WILL EXTEND SWWD INTO NWRN TX BY
AFTERNOON.

A VERY UNSTABLE AIR MASS WILL EXIST S AND E OF THESE BOUNDARIES WITH
DAYTIME HEATING AND DEWPOINTS MAINLY IN THE 60-64 F RANGE.

OVERNIGHT...THE INFLUENCE OF THE UPPER TROUGH WILL BEGIN TO AFFECT
PORTIONS OF THE CNTRL PLAINS...WITH DEEPENING LOW PRESSURE OVER
CNTRL NEB AND KS...AND AN INCREASING SWLY LOW LEVEL JET.

...NW TX AND WRN OK INTO SRN KS...
A LARGE AREA OF LOW LEVEL WARM ADVECTION WILL EXTEND FROM MN INTO
ERN OK AND NRN AR FRI MORNING IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE NRN PLAINS
TROUGH. THIS DEEP ZONE OF FORCING WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY RAIN AND
EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS. SOME OF THESE STORMS MAY BE CAPABLE OF
HAIL...ALTHOUGH MUCH OF IT SHOULD BE NON-SEVERE.

LATER IN THE DAY...THE THREAT FOR DIURNAL ACTIVITY ALONG THE DRYLINE
IS UNCLEAR. WITH SELY FLOW RETURNING ACROSS THE WARM SECTOR...AND
NEUTRAL FORCING ALOFT...LOW LEVEL CONVERGENCE WILL BE SUBTLE. AS
SUCH...MUCH OF THE WARM SECTOR IS EXPECTED TO HAVE A WEAK CAPPING
INVERSION DUE TO RELATIVELY COOL BOUNDARY LAYER TEMPERATURES AWAY
FROM THE DRYLINE ITSELF. EARLY ACTIVITY OVER ERN OK INTO SWRN MO MAY
LEAVE RESIDUAL BOUNDARIES THAT COULD ACT AS A FOCUS FOR DAYTIME
ACTIVITY. IF THIS OCCURS...THERE WOULD BE A THREAT OF ISOLATED
SUPERCELLS THERE WITH HAIL AND A TORNADO OR TWO.

ALONG THE DRYLINE...HEATING WILL ERODE CIN COMPLETELY...AND AT LEAST
ISOLATED STORMS ARE LIKELY AS A RESULT. WITH PLENTY OF INSTABILITY
AND A FAVORABLE HODOGRAPH...SUPERCELLS WOULD BE THE STORM MODE WITH
VERY LARGE HAIL AND A FEW TORNADOES PERSISTING FROM LATE AFTERNOON
INTO THE EARLY EVENING.

...NERN KS...SERN NEB...NWRN MO LATE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT...
WITH INCREASING SLY LOW LEVEL FLOW OVERNIGHT...MOISTURE AND
INSTABILITY SHOULD RETURN RAPIDLY NWD ACROSS KS AND INTO NEB BY SAT
MORNING. SOME MODELS INDICATE THAT CONVECTIVE INHIBITION MAY REMAIN
LIMITED OVER ERN KS...SERN NEB...NWRN MO AND SWRN IA. THUS...FORCING
FROM WARM ADVECTION SHOULD BE SUFFICIENT TO INITIATE NOCTURNAL
STORMS CAPABLE MAINLY OF LARGE HAIL. CONDITIONALLY...HAIL COULD BE
VERY LARGE WITH AMPLE SHEAR AND COOL PROFILES ALOFT.

AREAS AFFECTED...NERN CO...SWRN NEB THROUGH WRN KS

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH LIKELY

VALID 121824Z - 122030Z

ISOLATED SUPERCELLS ARE EXPECTED TO INITIATE BY 20Z OVER NERN CO.
ACTIVITY WILL THEN DEVELOP INTO SWRN NEB AND WRN KS THIS EVENING.
PRIMARY THREATS WILL BE VERY LARGE HAIL AND ISOLATED TORNADOES.

EARLY THIS AFTERNOON A DRYLINE EXTENDS SWD THROUGH ERN CO FROM A
WEAK SFC LOW IN NERN CO. A WARM FRONT/DIFFERENTIAL HEATING BOUNDARY
STRETCHED FROM NERN CO SEWD THROUGH WRN KS. A NE-SW ORIENTED
BOUNDARY WITH DEVELOPING CUMULUS WAS INDICATED JUST WEST OF AKRON.
LOW CLOUDS ARE MIXING OUT SOUTH AND WEST OF THE WARM FRONT ALLOWING
FOR DESTABILIZATION WITHIN THE MOIST WARM SECTOR. THE CAPPING
INVERSION WILL ERODE NEXT COUPLE HOURS PROMOTED BY SFC HEATING AND
MIXING AS WELL AS DEEPER FORCING FOR ASCENT ACCOMPANYING A NEWD
EJECTING SHORTWAVE TROUGH THAT WILL INTERACT WITH WRN FRINGE OF
MOIST AXIS. HIGH BASED STORMS MAY SOON DEVELOP IN THE DRIER AIR OVER
NE CO ALONG THE NE-SW BOUNDARY. DEEP LAYER VERTICAL SHEAR OF 40-50
KT WILL SUPPORT SUPERCELLS. OTHER STORMS MAY DEVELOP FARTHER EWD
ALONG DRYLINE...AND AS THEY MOVE THROUGH THE MOIST AXIS THEY WILL
ENCOUNTER SOMEWHAT LOWER LCLS AND INCREASINGLY FAVORABLE HODOGRAPHS
ASSOCIATED WITH STRENGTHENING LLJ. STORMS MAY EVENTUALLY INTERACT
WITH THE NW-SE ORIENTED WARM FRONT FROM EXTREME NE CO...SWRN NEB
INTO WRN KS WHERE 0-1 KM STORM RELATIVE HELICITY WILL BE MAXIMIZED
THIS EVENING.

S/w moving through CO will start to interact with the fairly narrow area of MLCAPE values between 1000-1500J/Kg. The strong forcing with this feature will lead to the development of supercells that will become a threat for large hails and tornadoes. Further south, although recent sat trends are promising we are in a race against time. Right now looks promising but keep in mind these areas to the south do not have the strong forcing that KS into CO has, so we are relying more on the thermodynamics and convergence along the dryline. Lets see how this plays out...

SEVERE STORMS COULD DEVELOP FROM NWRN TX THROUGH WRN OK DURING NEXT
FEW HOURS. SUPERCELLS CAPABLE OF VERY LARGE HAIL AND ISOLATED
TORNADOES WILL BE THE MAIN THREATS.

THE ATMOSPHERE HAS DESTABILIZED IN MOIST AXIS EAST OF THE DRYLINE

Today was a bad forecast day for the Southern Plains. Luckily nothing happened as early morning cloud cover prevented a much bigger outbreak than we will see. Still an active night in store. But moving on to tomorrow's forecast. My map is below and I know I am setting myself up for disaster again with this forecast (timing is everything) but I think tomorrow we will see another favorable day for tornadic potential. Keyword being potential as we saw today a lot of things can go wrong, but during the evening into the overnight it appears a few areas will get hit pretty hard. During the daylight hours I really don't see much developing but it is one of those things that you cannot overlook since if something does develop it could be big. I highlight a low-mid level s/w for Eastern OK combining with day time heating. Hopefully I can get one forecast right here...I was on a hot streak until I started posting...haha.

DAY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
1233 AM CDT FRI APR 13 2012

VALID 131200Z - 141200Z

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS LATE FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
FRIDAY NIGHT ACROSS THE SOUTH CENTRAL PLAINS INTO THE LOWER MISSOURI
VALLEY...

...SYNOPSIS...
MODELS CONTINUE TO INDICATE THAT THE PRIMARY UPPER IMPULSE...
ASSOCIATED WITH A BROADLY CYCLONIC MID/UPPER JET STREAK NOSING
INLAND OFF THE PACIFIC...WILL FINALLY DIG ACROSS THE SOUTHERN
CALIFORNIA COAST TODAY. BY THE END OF THE PERIOD...A DEEP CLOSED
LOW APPEARS LIKELY TO FORM ACROSS THE LOWER COLORADO VALLEY/
SOUTHERN PLATEAU REGION. AS UPPER RIDGING BUILDS DOWNSTREAM...
ACROSS THE GULF OF MEXICO AND MUCH OF THE EASTERN U.S...A
SIGNIFICANT UPPER IMPULSE ALREADY EMERGING FROM THE INTERMOUNTAIN
WEST IS EXPECTED TO LIFT FROM THE NORTH CENTRAL PLAINS INTO THE
UPPER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY/GREAT LAKES REGION.

FORCING ASSOCIATED WITH THIS LEAD FEATURE IS EXPECTED TO TEND TO
OUTRUN BETTER LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE RETURN FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO...AS
MOISTURE LEVELS CONTINUE TO GRADUALLY INCREASE OFF THE WESTERN GULF
INTO THE SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL PLAINS. AFTER INITIALLY SHIFTING
EASTWARD...IN RESPONSE TO THE UPPER IMPULSE...THE DRY LINE IS
EXPECTED TO RETREAT BACK TO THE WEST AND NORTH ACROSS THE PLAINS BY
THIS EVENING...AS NEW SURFACE CYCLOGENESIS COMMENCES ACROSS THE
SOUTH CENTRAL HIGH PLAINS.

COOL/STABLE AIR ASSOCIATED WITH A RETREATING SURFACE HIGH PROBABLY
WILL MAINTAIN LOW CONVECTIVE POTENTIAL TODAY ACROSS MUCH OF THE
EAST...WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SOUTHEAST FLORIDA COASTAL AREAS...WHERE
A FEW STORMS MAY FORM ON THE SEA BREEZE THIS AFTERNOON.
MEANWHILE...CONSIDERABLE THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY APPEARS PROBABLE WITH
THE MOISTURE AND ASSOCIATED INSTABILITY ACROSS PARTS OF THE PLAINS
AND MISSISSIPPI VALLEY...WHILE SCATTERED STORMS AGAIN DEVELOP
BENEATH THE COLD UPPER TROUGH ACROSS PARTS OF THE WEST AND
INTERMOUNTAIN WEST.

...SOUTH CENTRAL PLAINS INTO PARTS OF THE LWR MO VALLEY...
AS SURFACE DEW POINTS CONTINUE TO GRADUALLY CLIMB INTO THE LOWER AND
MID 60S...BENEATH AT LEAST MODESTLY STEEP MID-LEVEL LAPSE
RATES...POTENTIAL INSTABILITY IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TO INCREASE
ACROSS MUCH OF THE SOUTHERN PLAINS TODAY. BY LATE AFTERNOON...
MIXED LAYER CAPE MAY REACH 2000+ J/KG ACROSS A SIZABLE PORTION OF
TEXAS/OKLAHOMA AND ADJACENT PORTIONS OF THE CENTRAL PLAINS/OZARK
PLATEAU. FORCING FOR STORM DEVELOPMENT PRIOR TO 14/00Z IS
UNCLEAR...WITH GENERALLY WEAK MID/UPPER SUPPORT...AND IT IS NOT
CERTAIN THAT SURFACE BOUNDARIES...INCLUDING THE RETREATING DRY
LINE...WILL BE A SIGNIFICANT FACTOR.

HOWEVER...BY THIS EVENING...GUIDANCE IS SUGGESTIVE THAT A FOCUSED
AREA OF STRENGTHENING LOWER/MID TROPOSPHERIC WARM ADVECTION...
BENEATH INCREASINGLY DIFLUENT AND DIVERGENT HIGH LEVEL FLOW...WILL
DEVELOP ACROSS PARTS OF WESTERN INTO NORTH CENTRAL OKLAHOMA...BEFORE
GRADUALLY SHIFTING NORTHEASTWARD OVERNIGHT. AS THIS OCCURS IN THE
PRESENCE OF MODERATELY LARGE BOUNDARY LAYER CAPE...AND STRONG
VERTICAL SHEAR...STRONG/SEVERE STORMS APPEAR LIKELY...INCLUDING
DISCRETE SUPERCELLS. COINCIDING WITH STRENGTHENING SOUTHERLY 850
WIND FIELDS /30-50+ KT/...WHICH WILL RESULT IN ENLARGING CLOCKWISE
CURVED LOW-LEVEL HODOGRAPHS...A FEW TORNADOES WILL BE POSSIBLE. ONE
OR TWO COULD BE STRONG...ALONG WITH THE RISK FOR VERY LARGE
HAIL...BEFORE CONVECTION GRADUALLY WEAKENS AS BOUNDARY LAYER
INSTABILITY WANES LATE THIS EVENING INTO THE OVERNIGHT HOURS.
