SPC Nov 6, 2021 1730 UTC Day 2 Convective Outlook

SPC 1730Z Day 2 Outlook Day 2 Convective Outlook NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 1155 AM CDT Sat Nov 06 2021 Valid 071200Z - 081200Z ...NO SEVERE THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST... ...SUMMARY... Severe thunderstorms are still not expected on Sunday. ...Synopsis... Upper-level ridging will dominate much of the central U.S. tomorrow/Sunday, promoting large-scale subsidence atop a cool, dry low-level airmass, limiting thunderstorm potential for much of the CONUS. A couple thunderstorms may linger along the immediate North Carolina coastal waters region tomorrow morning, as a surface low departs the area. A couple thunderstorms also remain possible along the Pacific Northwest coastline as broad upper troughing overspreads the region. Forecast soundings depict a maritime polar surface airmass in place, with cooler temperatures aloft promoting marginal buoyancy for a couple lightning flashes through the period. Given 40-50 kt winds present as low as 850 mb, a couple strong wind gusts may accompany any thunderstorm, though an organized threat for severe gusts is not expected to materialize. ..Squitieri.. 11/06/2021 Read more LIVE:
