SPC Jun 8, 2021 0100 UTC Day 1 Convective Outlook

SPC 0100Z Day 1 Outlook Day 1 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0744 PM CDT Mon Jun 07 2021 Valid 080100Z - 081200Z ...THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS PARTS OF THE NORTHERN PLAINS AND NORTHERN MN... ...SUMMARY... Severe storms are expected across portions of the Dakotas into northwest Minnesota this evening into tonight. ...Lower MS Valley... A strong storm or two may continue producing gusty winds for another hour or so. Overall the severe threat is rapidly diminishing with loss of daytime heating, amid a weak shear and poor lapse rate environment. As a result, severe probabilities have been removed. For more information on the short term severe risk, reference MCD 874. ...Central/Southern High Plains into northwest TX... Thunderstorms capable of gusty winds and hail and perhaps a landspout tornado will continue for another couple of hours across parts of the central high Plains. There is some potential that a cluster of storms over the western TX Panhandle could still intensify this evening. Some CAMs guidance, similar to yesterday, indicate some upward development into a forward propagating cluster/bow tracking east/southeast across northwest Texas during the nighttime hours. However, this scenario remains highly uncertain and will maintain the Marginal risk. For more information on the short term severe potential, reference MCD 873. ...Northern Plains/MN... Strong to severe storms are ongoing across far north-central SD into southeast ND. This activity will be capable of damaging gusts and hail and persist into the nighttime hours. No changes have been made to this portion of the outlook with the 01z update. ..Leitman.. 06/08/2021 Read more LIVE:
