SPC Oct 14, 2021 0100 UTC Day 1 Convective Outlook

SPC 0100Z Day 1 Outlook Day 1 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0732 PM CDT Wed Oct 13 2021 Valid 140100Z - 141200Z ...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FROM SOUTH TEXAS TO WESTERN ARKANSAS... ...SUMMARY... Gusty winds and perhaps a brief tornado remain possible from portions of southwestern Texas into western Arkansas. ...TX-AR... Frontal zone that surged into the southern Plains earlier today has stalled and currently extends across eastern OK-DFW-south of DRT. A slow-moving MCS has evolved along this corridor where PWs are high, lapse rates are poor, but deep-layer flow is strong enough to support organized convection. Additionally, remnants of Pamela are tracking across Mexico and this feature should encourage additional convection across south TX later tonight. Will maintain low probabilities from TX-western AR for gusty winds and perhaps a brief tornado given the very moist but sheared environment. ..Darrow.. 10/14/2021 Read more LIVE: spc.noaa.gov
