SPC Oct 28, 2021 0600 UTC Day 2 Convective Outlook

SPC 0600Z Day 2 Outlook Day 2 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1219 AM CDT Thu Oct 28 2021 Valid 291200Z - 301200Z ...THERE IS A MARGINAL RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FOR NORTHEASTERN NORTH CAROLINA AND FAR SOUTHEAST VIRGINIA... ...SUMMARY... Isolated severe thunderstorms are possible during the morning over northeastern North Carolina and far southeast Virginia. ...NC/VA... The mid-level low initially over the TN Valley will slowly migrate eastward into southwest VA during the period. A front will extend from a low over the central Appalachians to eastern NC and southward to the FL Straits at the start of the period. A moist/destabilizing warm sector will likely exist early Friday morning over parts of eastern NC and into far southeast VA. Model guidance shows a broken band of convection near the front during the morning moving east-northeast and offshore into the coastal waters by late morning. Forecast soundings indicate that before the convection clears the coast, a risk for a supercell or two and linear segments may lend a narrow window of opportunity for isolated damaging gusts and/or a tornado. Elsewhere, quiescent conditions will prevail across much of the remainder of the Lower 48 states. ..Smith.. 10/28/2021 Read more LIVE:
